Compliance Budgeting: Reducing Risk While Doing More with Less

Watch Treliant’s Securities and Investment Management Compliance practice leader Alan Halfenger and a panel of industry experts for the webinar as they explore ways to enhance your compliance program and decrease risks through technology, outsourcing, and budgeting/critical task planning.

  • Creating efficacies around repetitive tasks through the use of part-time and outsourced resources;
  • Reorganizing monitoring and testing tasks to match frequency to the level of risk;
  • Using job sharing and overnight processing to address volume spike and surges; and
