Centre for Regulatory Strategy, Asia Pacific
Anticipate change. Respond with confidence.
The Deloitte Centre for Regulatory Strategy is a source of critical insight and advice, designed to help clients to anticipate change and respond with confidence to the strategic and aggregate impact of national and international regulatory policy.
As financial services regulators and legislators respond to the unpredictable global economic, business, and geo-political landscape — as well as the introduction of new technologies and digital platforms — they will continue to reshape today’s operating frameworks, creating a growing list of challenges for many firms.
