Keeping your Compliance Office Running and Compliant while Home-Working.

Recent developments around COVID-19, mean that everyone must re-think the way they work, and how they interact.  For many office-based workers this means working from home.  The heads of compliance at financial institutions were already stuck between a rock and a hard place, trying to deal with both increased regulatory requirements and the demand to cut costs. COVID-19 additionally forces compliance teams to work remotely often with multiple spreadsheets, share-point files and disparate emails. With no coherent frame of reference, remote working is particularly challenging.
So, what will this mean for compliance teams working remotely – how easy is it to continue to monitor regulation, track compliance and continue to work as a team, assigning and tracking necessary tasks all from a number of remote locations?

Compliance Oversight


The process of compliance oversight is relatively simple in theory but financial institutions have historically made it extremely complex and unwieldy.


In order to root out the inefficiencies and make the process more effective a straightforward re-thinking of the practise is needed. This doesn’t mean pulling up the roots and starting again, but defining and mapping the oversight requirements and process as part of defining the core compliance requirements.  In short ‘design in good oversight’.


This approach will support oversight becoming a standard item and the days of running around looking for old spreadsheets, presentations and emails should become a thing of the past.
