ABA welcomes FTI Consulting as new corporate member
FTI Consulting is an independent global business advisory firm that is dedicated to helping organisations manage change, mitigate risk and resolve disputes: financial, legal, operational, political, regulatory, reputational and transactional.
FTI's principal link to the Arab Bankers Association is Federica Taccogna (email@example.com). Federica leads FTI's regulatory compliance team which comprises lawyers, industry experts and former regulators. Other people who will be points of contact with the Association are listed on FTI's entry on our Corporate Members page.
At the moment, the regulatory and compliance team is particularly active in advising financial regulators on matters related to financial crime regulation, and it is also active in advising financial institutions how to address questions from financial regulators about their compliance practices and procedures. Other areas of focus include governance and data management, prudential regulation and credit risk, and MiFID.
We are attaching below some examples of recent research notes published by FTI.
