Center for Regulatory Strategy, Americas

Anticipate change. Respond with confidence.

The Center for Regulatory Strategy is a source of critical insight and advice, designed to help clients anticipate change and respond with confidence to the strategic and aggregate impact of national and international regulatory policy.

What is the Center?

As regulators and legislators respond to the unpredictable global economic, business, and geopolitical landscape—as well as the introduction of new technologies and digital platforms—they will continue to reshape today’s operating frameworks across industries, creating a growing list of challenges for many firms.

Through regular dialogue with institutions, trade associations, and other regulatory stakeholders, the Center helps Deloitte’s clients stay ahead of evolving regulatory trends and understand what actions can be taken. With regional hubs in the Americas, Asia Pacific, and EMEA, the Center combines the strength of Deloitte’s network of experienced risk, regulatory, and industry professionals—including a deep roster of former regulators, industry specialists, and business advisers—with a rich understanding of the impact of regulations on business models and strategy.

The Center in the Americas has a multi-industry focus, covering financial services, health care, life sciences, and energy, while the Center in the Asia Pacific and EMEA is focused on the financial services industry.
