New Guide Helps Treasurers Cope with Influx of Regulations

  • By Staff Writers
  • Published: 5/26/2015
One of the biggest challenges facing corporate treasurers today is how to respond to the mass of proposed and new regulations around the world. The new CTC Guide, Effective Compliance with Global Regulations, supported by Thomson Reuters, is designed to help treasurers determine when and how best to respond to a range of current and planned regulatory changes.

The guide focuses on four areas in which new regulations have been, and are being, implemented: anti-bribery and corruption, anti-terrorist financing and anti-money laundering, tax evasion and avoidance, and strengthening the financial system. It concentrates on regulations being developed by U.S. regulators, but also highlights examples of key changes effected by other regulators around the world. It includes, for example, an assessment of the implications of Dodd-Frank and EMIR, the U.S. and EU regulators’ respective approaches to risk management in the derivatives markets.

As with all treasury tasks, responding to proposed regulation successfully is primarily a question of setting clear priorities. Treasurers can prioritize according to two main criteria: by stated implementation date and by likely impact on both the treasury department and the company as a whole. The final section of the guide outlines the key decisions treasurers need to make when formulating a response.
