What is meant by Global Compliance?
Global compliance manages the compliance of the firm's regulatory and reputational risks by ensuring adherence to laws, rules, and regulations. We examine the trends and changes in regulations in all the jurisdictions in which the firm does business, and we also develop and implement divisional policies and procedures. With regard to advising on the firm's business, global compliance is responsible for managing audits and inquiries, educating our people on our policies and procedures, surveillance, and testing the firm's risk management infrastructure.
How are we Organized?
Global compliance is broadly organized into divisional compliance groups that are embedded in the areas they support and the centralized compliance groups. They survey risks and manage regulatory affairs, services, and resources related to all the firm's businesses and employees globally. These centralized groups include:
- Control Room
- Core Compliance
- Financial Crime Compliance comprises the anti-money laundering or suspicious activities group, the government sanctions group, and the anti-bribery group.
- Global Compliance Employee Services.
- Global compliance testing group
- Regional Regulatory affairs
- Regulatory practice group
- Regulatory Reporting
- Surveillance Analytics
What is the Importance of Proper Global Compliance Program?
Of all the regulatory compliance efforts for a company is its global compliance program. This is the primary picture of the company's overall approach, strategy, and steps for achieving compliance. A company's program is generally coded into a compliance manual, which is then disseminated throughout the company as per the need. A properly planned manual must be:
- Accessible to the relevant employees.
- Subject to the oversight by the Board of directors
- Periodically reviewed and modified, especially as per the changes to the global compliance laws.
Besides the formal global compliance program and manual, other aspects of company operations and governance need to coordinate for ensuring compliance. These aspects can include:
- Employee Training
- Background checks
- Reporting mechanisms
- Mechanisms for auditing and monitoring
- Risk assessment
- Assessment of the compliance program
- Corrective responses to compliance program variations.
What are the Factors to be Considered for Global Compliance?
Compliance officers are responsible for a varied range of responsibilities. For instance, they need to monitor regulatory trends and shifts in all the jurisdictions in which their company conducts its business. They also need to collaborate closely with the other executives as well as regulators for assessing and managing risks.
In general, the compliance officers are increasingly faced with technology-related issues, especially those dealing with data along with privacy and cybersecurity. Some of the factors affecting global compliance are as follows:
Evolving Jurisdictional Rules
One of the main challenges in regulatory compliance is the pace at which new laws and regulations appear. In a global setting, the companies and their executives must continuously update the latest legal developments and rulings as they expand into new territories. The compliance officers, general counsel, CEOs, and other prominent executives must be aware of these types of changes in the jurisdictions where the firm conducts business.
Compliance is understood in all the countries, but it is vague when it operates in the emerging markets. In particular, there will be a direct connection and coordination between the risk management and compliance functions for companies that operate in the emerging markets. For example, emerging markets are generally associated with different legal frameworks and compliance requirements. In many cases, there are even more distinct cultural and social factors that affect market operations.
For example, emerging markets are associated with different legal frameworks and compliance requirements. In many cases, there can be distinct cultural and social factors that can affect market operations. This type of realities and influences will be accounted for and integrated into the company's overall risk assessment as they enter those markets. What works in one economic context cannot be advantageous in a different setting. Hence, the companies, as well as the executives, must be able to adapt as the scope of operations changes.
Compliance is basically a complicated matter, especially when it is considered in the light of global, intra-jurisdictional operations. Moreover, the regulations are constantly shifting and undergoing updates. The ability to make new adjustments is crucial.
