Collas Crill and Comsure will host a free Risk Outlook Workshop in early February. This year looks to bring with it even more regulations and greater demands for transparency, putting pressure not only on compliance functions but everyone within a financial services organisation from the top down. With a number of changes arising in 2014 and 2015, and with MoneyVal on the horizon, 2015 is looking like a busy year for compliance.

In reaction to this Collas Crill and Comsure will host a Risk Outlook Workshop which will look at the recent and forthcoming legal and regulatory changes for 2015. The Workshop will give both legal and practical advice on the key issues that every Board should be discussing now, some of which will include: CDD Changes, Jersey Proceeds of Crime legislation, MoneyVal, Civil penalties and The Jersey Financial Services Ombudsman.

Comsure's Mathew Beale, a leading provider of compliance services in the Channel Islands, said "This timely workshop has been designed to cover the key issues that will impact every financial services business in 2015, by providing a summary of these matters it is hoped that attendees will be more equipped to consider what their firms should be doing in light of such proposed changes and prepare their time and resources for a busy 2015."

Collas Crill risk and regulatory expert Paul Wilson said: "No longer is it enough to just know the rules; leading financial services businesses need to stay two steps ahead – to do this they have to get into the mindset of the regulator and take proactive steps to make sure they can deal with the issues that really matter, saving time and money for getting on with business."

The workshop will be of interest to a wide range of professionals tackling risk and regulatoryissues, as well as anyone with an eye on Jersey's regulatory landscape, including Directors, CEOs, finance officers, administrators, MLROs, Risk Officers and NEDs.
