Financial Markets Regulatory Outlook 2021
Recover, renew, rebuild
Every year, the Deloitte EMEA Centre for Regulatory Strategy (ECRS) issues a report that explores how major regulatory trends will affect the financial services industry across the EMEA in the year ahead, and how leaders can anticipate and respond to them effectively. The 2021 edition of our Regulatory Outlook identifies nine cross-sector themes of strategic significance, as well as a number of other supervisory priorities in each of the Banking and Capital Markets, Insurance and Investment Management sectors.
The economic implications of the COVID-19 pandemic remain highly uncertain and increasingly variable between regions. Over the last year, regulators and supervisors have given priority to maintaining the immediate financial and operational resilience of financial services firms, working closely with them to ensure they remain a key part of the economic recovery. First and foremost, this means fulfilling the industry’s primary function: channel credit and investments to where they are most needed. But FS firms will also need to deliver in three important areas: the increasingly urgent need to progress against sustainability objectives, fostering cultures that deliver good outcomes for customers and society, and making meaningful progress on the imperatives of diversity and inclusion.
