Compliance Officer duties (For Banks and PFS Investment Firms) : the essentials

As Chief Compliance officer or member of the Compliance function at Banks and PFS, you are identified as a Key function Holder and part of the 2nd line of defence, and therefore a key component of the institution’s internal control framework.

The scope of your position is broad and ever-growing in terms of 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 organisational perspective.

It is essential to position yourself in the organisation knowing the reporting lines, the interaction with the different stakeholders and 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 control and advisory roles.

Thanks to our expertise in  Compliance functions from a regulatory point of view, but also from a practical  perspective, we would like to share our experience with you to allow you to be ready for your day to day role.
