Compliance With Provincial Laws – What Compliance Officers Need to Know
Posted on November 3, 2017

While ignorance may be bliss in some cases, it is generally not regarded as an acceptable state of affairs by regulators when it comes to the question of how financial institutions ensure they are complying with all applicable laws. Guidelines issued by the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (“OSFI”) and Québec’s Authorité des Marchés Financiers (“AMF”) explicitly state that a financial institution should (1) be aware of what laws, regulations and supervisory guidelines apply to it, (2) ensure that compliance with these laws, regulations and guidelines are incorporated into regular compliance reviews, and (3) ensure that controls and procedures are in place to manage the risk of non-compliance…

Regulatory Change Management – Leveling the Playing Field
Posted on November 3, 2017

Regulatory Change Management (“RCM”) is a relatively new compliance concept. Born out of the tremendous increase in regulatory activity post the 2008 global financial crisis, RCM as a discipline is fairly self-explanatory. It is the process by which financial institutions manage change. Simple, right? In fact, Compliance Officers who have been in practice for a significant length of time may balk at the idea of labeling a function that is so axiomatic to the compliance role.

Let me know if you need anything else. However as simple the RCM concept is, the challenge lies in the application…

Understand Risk: Using technology to unloack the potential of raw data and deliver valuable risk intelligence
Posted on October 23, 2017

Investing in risk management makes sense because the better we understand risk, the more risk we can take, so the more we can grow. It is therefore critical that we develop a deep understanding of what certain risks mean to our businesses, how they fit with our risk appetites, and how we can equip ourselves to make more informed business decisions…

Harnessing Data And Analytics To Transform Compliance
Posted on October 18, 2017

In the past 10 years, amazing advances in technology and automation have presented great opportunities for organizations to innovate and realize efficiencies. Yet, as technological capabilities expand, so too do regulatory expectations, including what compliance programs should be. Today’s Chief Compliance Officers (CCOs) are expected to have certain data and analytics (D&A) available at their fingertips from across the enterprise, to recognize and question potential indicia or red flags that are visible in the data and also to utilize D&A to refine and focus their compliance efforts in a more risk-based manner…

Fair Lending in the Brave New World of Big Data
Posted on October 4, 2017

The burgeoning new world of online “marketplace” lending holds the promise of broader access to credit for consumers and businesses with reduced cost and more competition. However, cutting-edge technology, data sources and credit modeling methods also pose potential for fair lending risk – notwithstanding the fair lending benefits of automated decision-making. We provide an overview of marketplace lending, the “Big Data” and machine-learning technologies increasingly being used by both online and traditional lenders, and key considerations in managing fair lending risk in this brave new world…

The Challenge of Cybersecurity Due Diligence

Brand reputation is hard won and easily lost and few would deny its importance.

Posted on September 26, 2017

When compliance managers think about the good old days, they do not have to look back too far. In fact, prior to 2008, the world was a much simpler place: the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) published a list of sanctioned companies and individuals, and as long as their company was not doing business with any person on that list, they seemed to be in good shape. This was definitely not an easy task. However, after 2008, it became more complicated when OFAC guidance stated that an ownership interest of 50% or more by a sanctioned subject was blocked or otherwise limited….
