Regulatory Sprint Benchmarking Reports

The FS HR & Compliance Network has launched a series of Regulatory Sprint Benchmarking Reports to help the financial services industry become more consistent with their approach to interpreting regulation.

The report is designed to provide benchmark data for regulation in a small number of key areas. The intent is to broaden and deepen the number of questions and value to the report over time. Each report is based on short surveys sent to the FS HR & Compliance Network Members. It anonymises and collates real data to provide members with informed insight in to how the financial services industry is tackling regulation.

To participate and receive the Regulatory Sprint Benchmarking Reports, you must become a Member. See further information on how to become a member below.
