will deal with the theme:

“Competitive Risk Prevention Strategy in the Banking and Financial Sector.”

The banking and financial sector has seen the birth of compliance. However, in this sector, as in all others, a change in corporate culture has recently taken place. Compliance has become a more global concept, imported from the United States. A culture of respect for the rules to ensure a more solid and sustainable performance. This is reflected in the appearance of codes of conduct that require employees to act in accordance with the values and ethical principles laid down by the company while complying with legal, regulatory and ethical standards.

The implementation of compliance programs is a strategic and organizational element that is essential to bring about this cultural change. The company must put in place an effective compliance strategy. Experience shows that “one size does not fit all”. This strategy must take into account many parameters and not become a simple adjustment variable. To be effective, many stakeholders, both internal and external, must be involved in building the programs.

In a regulated sector such as the banking and financial sector, where compliance is king when it is imposed by the regulations but may appear subsidiary in the absence of regulatory requirements, the implementation of competition compliance programs therefore still remains a real challenge for lawyers and compliance officers.
