Regulatory Outlook 2018


Financial Services Regulatory Outlook 2018

Facing the future: an evolving landscape

With the finalisation of Basel III, the regulatory agenda in Asia Pacific will now become firmly focused on the future. This paper sets out the top ten regulatory themes that the Deloitte Centre for Regulatory Strategy expects to dominate the financial services regulatory agenda in the region over the coming year. Whilst the significance of each of these ten themes will vary across different jurisdictions, industry sectors and institutions, we consider all areas identified to be relevant to financial services firms operating in Asia Pacific to some degree.

Uncertainty and the potential for divergence in global regulation will challenge firms in 2018. Improving culture and conduct will continue to be a regulatory priority, with individual accountability, industry codes and embedding customer centricity being particular focal points during the year. Innovation, digital disruption, and cyber resilience will likewise remain top of the Asia Pacific regulatory agenda. Firms will face pressures around their data security, infrastructure, and governance while also meeting open-data expectations. A shifting landscape arising from technology disruption and forays from e-commerce giants will provide both strategic and regulatory challenges. Looking further ahead we expect increased supervisory interest in management of risks associated with climate change and ageing populations.

Our 2018 Outlook takes stock of these developments, looking at what we see as the top ten issues over the next year, going beyond the detail to provide context, implications, and insights into managing these risks.
