Is the burden of regulatory change on businesses helping to prevent harm to consumers, stakeholders and markets or is it just a cost to be borne by the law-abiding?
International trade, new technologies and products, and changing business models mean that businesses are governed by ever more complex rules and requirements. Meanwhile, the public, political and media reaction to large corporate failures has increasingly been to demand even more regulation of both businesses and those who advise them. The pressure and burden on businesses of all sizes to keep pace is immense but for all the disruption is all this change having a positive effect?
Our experience is that fraud, misapplication of assets and misrepresentation of financial information is becoming increasingly common (and at best is certainly not in decline) and no amount of regulation seems to be turning the tide. How do you stay competitive when not everyone is sticking to the rulebook?
We invite you to join us to share views on the future of regulation and its impact on our businesses.
