Comply & Demand

EYES ON THE HORIZON

Accenture’s 2018 Compliance Risk Study results would indicate that companies are overly focusing on current risks instead of taking a proactive approach to new risks coming to the fore, such as the proliferation of virtual currencies and new concerns about corporate conduct. This, in our view, may hinder their growth.

In this volatile risk ecosystem, the idea of phasing development across a multi-year roadmap is challenged by the need for continuous improvement in-line with industry transformations.

Change is no longer optional. To succeed, industry leaders should define a modular transformation strategy that allows them to move at the pace of the digital age.

9% drop in headcount

Compliance is no longer relying upon adding headcount to increase its effectiveness.

Only 22% of respondents have more than 500 people in their compliance function, a significant drop from last year.

89% are increasing investment

Despite reductions in headcount, compliance spending is slated to increase over the next two years.

The focus of this spending is changing from people to technology.

76% report a skills gap

Compliance is facing a major gap between skills required and skills currently available, especially in the wake of new technology investments.

TAKE A MODULAR
APPROACH

Compliance functions that commit themselves to continual and targeted innovation can expect to keep up with the technological demands of the landscape. Our study discovered that industry leaders are adopting a personal blend of three investment approaches:
