Early Preparation is Critical

An article in Wall Street Technology this week emphasizes the need for financial institutions to prepare for the coming wave of new rules and regulations.  Here is a sample of their view.

The Obama administration’s new proposals to regulate the financial industry, which respond to calls for greater transparency and oversight, will completely overhaul the way Wall Street firms operate. But even while specific regulations still are being mapped out, it is vital for financial institutions to prepare now to comply with any new rules that may be coming down the road.

Brian Cummings, director of information risk management, Tata Consultancy Services, North America, agrees that it is more essential than ever for firms to consolidate their risk and compliance efforts, rather than to just bolt on new tools. “You can’t have IT doing its own thing and accounting doing its own thing too,” he insists. “You need to take an enterprise view of risk management and consolidate your efforts.” Then firms can use the appropriate tools to analyze their risk exposure, Cummings continues. “That’s powerful, as trying to do it on an ad hoc basis makes it very difficult to get a grand view of where you are,” he says.

A streamlined, efficient approach to enterprise risk management can yield great cost savings and provide firms with a true competitive advantage over rival institutions.  Wheelhouse Advisors can help craft a cost-effective plan for your company to implement an integrated enterprise risk management program.  Learn more at www.WheelhouseAdvisors.com.
