Evolving Banking Regulation: The journey continues (ASPAC Edition) 

It is clear that banks’ business models are being impacted by regulation – and in Asia this is becoming increasingly so. This report looks at the different stages of regulation development in the region, what issues are arising and what we think the banks should be doing.

Key insights

  • In Asia the three ‘hottest’ regulatory issues are currently capital, liquidity and FATCA.
  • Due to multiple markets at different stages of development, it is not going to be straightforward for those doing business in the region to meet all new regulatory requirements.
  • Foreign banks face a multitude of issues in Asia as a result of requirements from the international supervisory bodies, own national/regional supervisory bodies, and actions by host supervisors.
