The Global Regulatory Reform team reports into the Group Head of Compliance. The team has staff based in Singapore, London and New York. The remit of the team covers the global regulatory agenda; pan-regional regulatory initiatives; regulations emanating in key markets that are extra-territorial in reach; and those UK prudential and conduct regulations that apply to the SCB Group.

The Global Regulatory Reform team uses subject matter expertise to promote awareness and understanding of new regulations for the Group. On reforms the team identifies, analyses and manages a forward agenda of regulatory proposals and advises all affected global business and control functions.

Together with front office stakeholders, and especially Public Affairs, the team also delivers targeted advocacy on material regulatory initiatives affecting the Group.

The team is organised internally into three branches organised around regulatory themes: markets and conduct; prudential and resolution and regulatory strategy. This position sits within the Markets & Conduct branch and is expected to focus on markets and conduct-based regulatory reforms in America, while working closely with the other branches. Global Regulatory Reform also has a branch dedicated to assessing the impact of regulations on SCB and the post-holder will be expected to work closely with the assessment branch.
For all markets and conduct reforms in the Americas, focus on the delivery of a comprehensive and timely set of advisory services to Bank stakeholders throughout the complete regulatory life cycle (including reform identification, interpretation, advocacy, impact assessment, implementation and post-implementation support), with respect to reforms affecting all business lines in the Americas (Financial Markets, Transaction Banking, Corporate Finance).
