Preparing for Singapore's Rules on Senior Manager Accountability in Financial Institutions

MCO has partnered with Thomson Reuters to bring you a webinar that covers the new MAS conduct guidelines. Thomson Reuters experts and our Asia-Pacific director, Kelly-Ann McHugh will discuss how the MAS intends to ensure that senior executives are following the rules and if these firms' culture are reflecting high ethical standards. In addition, our speakers will give consideration to what firms need to take into account, as well as comparisons with other accountability regimes and whether they have been implemented effectively.

The MAS have been focusing on culture and conduct for some time to ensure that there are ethical practises in place that ensure customers’ interests are protected and there is fair treatment and ultimate accountability and appropriate governance in the financial industry. Most importantly, the regulator wants to ensure there is prudent risk-taking behaviour and robust risk management procedures to support financial institution’s soundness.

The agenda includes:

  • What firm and senior managers should be considering to comply with the new guidelines
  • What can senior managers do about reducing their liability?
  • Comparison of accountability regimes in Europe and Asia
  • Real cases of compliance breaches by senior managers and employees
  • and more...

Q&A Session at the end with Kelly-Ann McHugh, Nathan Lynch and Niall Coburn.
