Complinet, the leading provider of connected risk and compliance solutions for the global financial services industry, held their 2nd Annual US Customer Summit in New York City on October 30, 2008 where panels of experienced compliance leaders led discussions amongst a crowd of 140+ compliance professionals.
The customer panels consisted of financial services industry experts from Credit Suisse, KPMG, Deloitte, FINRA, UBS Investment Bank, JP Morgan, E*Trade Financial, Deutsche Bank Securities, Inc., Citigroup, BNY Mellon, Barclays Wealth, and others who challenged each other on a range of topics including managing global regulations with technology solutions, principle-based vs. rules-based regulation, data protection, keeping up with regulatory change, the challenges involved in effectively knowing your customers, best practice in policy management and supervision, and much more.
Paul Johns, Chief Marketing Officer said, “"It was evident at the summit that cost conscious compliance professionals are selecting information technology and solutions that deliver real ROI without compromising regulatory obligations. Compliance solutions discussed on the day included the critical importance of linking internal policies to external regulatory changes with such solutions as Complinet’s Policy Manager; as well as how auditable online training has become essential to ensuring employees fully understand how they need to appropriately conduct themselves."
Feedback from one summit attendee included: "The Complinet Customer Summit was not only informative, but it also served as a catalyst for the development and enhancement of our internal compliance department. I left with a light bulb hovering above my head."
