Helping to shape the business environment and advocacy
Increasing regulation at the national and European levels represents a great challenge for the German banking industry and in the securities business. The growing complexity results in margin pressure and gives rise to new liability risks.
dwpbank champions the interests of its clients with the leading German banking associations, European initiatives and a large number of external boards and organisations.
The growing body and complexity of regulatory requirements and initiatives are drivers of change which impacts securities settlement processes and technical implementation.
In order to provide constructive support for this change process and promote common-sense regulation, dwpbank assumes responsibility for measured advocacy in the interest of its clients – which includes actively following the legislative process.
dwpbank views consultation and debate as an opportunity to help shape regulatory initiatives, balancing the general good and efficient, cost-effective settlement with low-risk transaction settlement routines.
dwpbank becomes involved of the development of new or amended regulations in the early stages. It analyses the potential impacts of future changes in the law so that it can offer constructive proposals on shaping those changes long before they enter into effect. This is the only way to offer member banks tangible support in due time.
