In a global economy increasingly vulnerable to the behaviour of financial markets, strong oversight and regulation of the financial services sector is vital. Professionals operating in this high stakes field require a detailed understanding of the complex legislation, as well as the ability to step back and see the full picture to make informed decisions.
