We are pleased to announce the launch of FSR Outlook 2021: Paving the Way Forward.
In this annual publication, we survey the regulatory landscape in 2021 and identify some themes that we expect to be at the core of regulatory priorities globally in the next 12 months.
2020 has been dominated by Covid-19, political uncertainty, and the preparations for Brexit – which are likely to continue to cast a long shadow over 2021. Although some second-guessing of crisis-driven responses is probably inevitable (“2020 hindsight”), the hope is that regulators will also focus on the benefits and opportunities furnished by the adoption of digital solutions in response to the pandemic, and how the financial system can best help support the global economic recovery.
Our Global Outlook for 2021 looks at nine different areas, from innovation in payments and digital operational resilience, through to the trend towards increased regulatory intervention which leads us to expect the number of investigations against individuals will to continue to grow, not least given continuing regulatory focus on making senior managers accountable.
