How Analytics Is Aiding Banking Compliance

In 2007, as Lehman Brothers’ collapse set off a chain reaction throughout the banking industry, regulators began going down to banks to look at their risk exposure as they sought to get an idea of the potential damage that could be done. Something they should, arguably, have done some time before.

Lehman Brothers’ collapse heralded the beginning of a new era of regulations, though, with Dodd Frank, which was introduced in 2010, and Basel III in 2011 among the most far-reaching and complex. Over $100 billion in fines have been paid in US for non-compliance since 2007, and with a new Republican-led regime entering power, it is unclear what the future holds.
