E2W Workshop: Heating up - The Pace of Regulation for PSPs/EMIs

E2W Workshop: Heating up - The Pace of Regulation for PSPs/EMIs

Katie.Dix / 09 Dec 2020

On Tuesday 8th December, we hosted a a virtual workshop with E2W member Allison Strachan. E2W members can request a full recording of the session by emailing

Allison is a Treasury Risk specialist and was most recently the Head of Capital Management at Natwest Markets plc. Her responsibilities included day-to-day capital management oversight, capital budgeting, intra-group lending, capital issuance, ICAAP and Recovery Planning but also crossed over into Enterprise Wide Risk with her focus on risk appetite and RCSA controls.

Allison previously held senior capital and tax roles at Standard Chartered Bank with a focus on ICAAP and stress testing, capital deployment, M&A and restructuring. She is also a Chartered Accountant.

Workshop synopsis:

Does the financial services sector learn from history and how long does it take to implement the lessons? Is it right to expect PSPs and EMIs to "jump to maturity" in terms of Risk Management Frameworks when it took banks over 30 years? Regulatory focus is increasing for these firms. But why now? How big of a priority is it? It might be time to get ahead of the regulatory agenda.

I really like this article
