Banking Regulation 2019

March 2019 Global Insights < 1 read

Banks in Canada have been continuously recognized as amongst the soundest and safest across the globe. Notwithstanding, the global financial crisis has led to a series of significant regulatory changes (most notably in the areas of liquidity and capital) designed to reduce the risk of another global financial crisis occurring, to which Canadian banks are already or will become subject, to ensure that they will continue to be well positioned for any risks going forward.

Banking Regulation 2019 covers key topics including regulatory architecture, themes and developments, bank capital requirements, bank governance/internal controls, Fintech, rules governing banks’ relationships with their customers and other third parties in 28 jurisdictions.
