2017 Forecast: Uncertainty Abounds

Actimize FMC Product Team, Financial Markets Compliance

Last year we brought you the 12 Days of Reputational Risk, reflecting on reputational issues that organizations faced in 2015, from corruption scandals and fraud investigations to information security issues and data breaches, and the way in which organizations of all shapes and sizes found themselves scrambling to res​pond.

Following the U.S. presidential election and the days of uncertainty that have followed, a year in review roundup seems beside the point. Our subject matter experts (SMEs) are instead focused on what the future may bring and how much we don’t know about what to expect in the next twenty days before the U.S. Presidential inauguration. With a look ahead to risks and regulatory changes which may or may not impact our industry, our NICE Actimize experts have responded.

Finally, I review the potential for Open Banking in the U.S. as a result of the important talk given by Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Director Richard Cordray at this Fall’s Money 20/20 conference and some of the impact that the CFPB could have both in the US and elsewhere in the coming months. Read more in my recent blog, “Will Open ​Banking Come to the US?

As I’m sure you are as well, our experts at NICE Actimize are monitoring the coming days, weeks and months with interest, ensuring that we remain up-to-date on the latest trends, changes and issues that will affect our industry. Here’s to an interesting 2017!
