Compliance officer duties (for ManCos): the essentials

As Chief Compliance Officer, member of the compliance function or conducting officer, or responsible for compliance within a management company, you are identified as a key function holder and part of the 2nd line of defence, and therefore a key component of the company's internal control framework.

Your tasks and responsibilities are broad and ever-growing in terms of the number of regulatory requirements to cover. That being said, it is key to have a clear view on what is expected from you from both a regulatory and internal perspective.

It is essential to position yourself in the organisation, knowing the reporting lines, the interaction with the different stakeholders, the tools and methodologies available to perform your day-to-day tasks and controls. This will allow you to focus on the business as usual activities in terms of performing controls and being the advisor for management and for your peers.

Due to our expertise concerning the tasks and responsibilities of the compliance functions, not only from a regulatory point of view, but also from a practical perspective, we would like to share our experience with you and to enable you to be ready for your day-to-day role.
