Pricing Risk Operating Model Review

Tightening regulations on pricing practices in Hong Kong and Singapore have introduced significant regulatory risks for banks. Our operating model review identifies potential gaps and compliance hotspots along your entire value chain by analyzing processes and benchmarking to our best practices framework.
