Deloitte’s Center for Risk Management Strategy (CRMS) sponsored the 2018 Thomson Reuters Japanese Financial Regulatory Summit for the fifth year in a row. The summit brings together 900 c-suite executives and the top management of foreign and domestic financial institutions in Japan to discuss the critical regulatory issues impacting the financial services sector.
Deloitte professionals participated in the summit as speakers, panel moderators, and as members of panel discussions. As well, Deloitte also connected with summit attendees at their booth in the main concourse of the Grand Hyatt Tokyo, where the summit was held.
The event drew over 900 c-suite and upper-management attendees from financial institutions & regulatory bodies to discuss the thorny issue of the financial sector’s response to an increasingly globally regulated industry. Participant’s backgrounds were diverse: Global Enterprise Management, Risk Management, Compliance, Internal Audit, Legal, and Finance professionals were all present.
Highlights from this year’s agenda include Basel III and the next moves of the Basel Committee, MiFiD II and implications for the Japanese market, the future trends in AML regulation, and finally the impact of technology like Fintech or Regtech on the industry.
Deloitte professionals gave the morning Special Presentation on “The Evolving Global Financial Regulatory Landscape and Business Model Risk”; moderated the Panel Discussion on “Basel III to FRTB – Developing Practical Framework Models”; and were panelists for the discussion on the “Seven Perspectives unfolding the Next Finance Era –Beyond Fintech”
