Every crisis reinforces the need for robust risk management and prudent regulation. Furthermore, the ongoing lack of public trust in financial services, compared to other industries, is a constant reminder of the need for diligent supervision.

A career in the regulatory and compliance sector is sometimes overlooked. In particular, people fail to recognise that it grants exposure to many aspects of the financial services industry in a relatively short time frame. Also, it provides an opportunity to contribute to the regulatory-policy-making process directly.

This webinar offers the following learning outcomes:


  1. An overview of the regulatory and compliance sector in India
  2. The skills required for a successful career
  3. Roles and entry requirements


This is the archived version of a live webinar that took place on 23 April 2020
