In addition to the ranking, the report
highlights key trends for the coming years. Chartis estimates the global expenditure on risk and compliance
technology to being in excess of $100bn in 2016 and growing rapidly. With this
rapid growth comes new challenges and new opportunities in remaining compliant
and minimizing the organization’s overall risk. Over the last year, the financial services industry has seen trends
around enterprise-wide risk management shift slightly from the way it’s been
approached in the past. Financial
institutions need to be more agile and have the flexibility to reduce time and
cost to compliance. Automation and
simplification have resounded over the recent months.

Key trends moving into 2016 and beyond

  • Enterprise governance, compliance and operational risk
  • Risk data aggregation and reporting
  • Enterprise stress testing and model risk management
  • Financial crime risk management and cyber security
  • IFRS 9

Financial institutions and their executives
are under increased pressure on many different fronts: more stringent
regulatory requirements that lead to top- and bottom-line challenges; changing
customer requirements – demand for more individualized relationships and
offerings; challenger institutions and FinTechs eager to make their mark and
erode bank market share; financial crime and fraud continues to rise in
frequency, complexity, and scope. Not to mention that each different executive
has their own set of challenges, yet they are all working towards the same
goal: compliance, profitability and customer satisfaction.

Partnering with a vendor that offers a unified
data foundation, platform and applications for integrated risk, performance,
customer insight, compliance, and reporting with full management and regulatory reporting will help your
organization accomplish the laundry list of requirements for each role while
eliminating data silos
poor data quality and
painful processes for regulatory submissions.

Is your organization moving towards a unified
platform? Do you agree with the report’s findings? I would love to hear your
