Institutions must take the necessary steps to ensure that all aspects of their processes and procedures are in full compliance and ready for an increased potential for review and scrutiny.
Changes in the regulatory environment, razor-thin margins, and a shift to greater technological integration have resulted in an increased potentiality for risk and violations within the consumer financial arena. Institutions must establish the proper framework to not only ensure compliance but also provide optimal efficiencies throughout the product lifecycle. Changes in federal administration are resulting in a greater focus on the consumer. Therefore, institutions must take the necessary steps to ensure that all aspects of their processes and procedures are in full compliance and ready for an increased potential for review and scrutiny.
