Conduct regulation will remain high on the regulatory agenda for 2016.  Across Europe, focus will be on key implementation projects including MIFID II, Market Abuse Regulations (“MAR”) and the regulations on Packaged Retail and Insurance-Based Investment Products (“PRIIPs”).  The focus is now moving to integration and embedding of conduct risk into established prudential risk frameworks however articulating risk appetite for conduct risk still remains challenging.  Institutions are seeking to become more forward-looking and outcomes focussed in the management of conduct risk through improvement of control frameworks and MI to better manage conduct risk in their business.
