Navigating the coronavirus pandemic has been, for many financial institutions, an exercise of forced adaptations, creative workarounds, and difficult choices. One of the most striking consequences is that the traditional way of managing risk and compliance fails when tested by fast-moving, interconnected risks, and that it needs changing.
Financial institutions and regulators are finally in agreement on the fact that now everything is on the table, and we have the opportunity to create positive, productive, and lasting change that will make financial institutions more resilient to face whatever crisis will come next.
The Financial Services industry needs to think about operational resilience in terms of not only preventing disruption, but also of restoring business and providing services seamlessly and continuously, no matter what hits.
Financial services firms need to elevate their traditional business continuity planning and disaster recovery to a more strategic, holistic set of capabilities because there WILL be a next crisis, and it could look very different from this one. The question that all banks and FI across America are really asking now is: Are we ready? Is our company operationally resilient? What have we learned from the current worldwide crisis?

Clifford Chance is one of the world’s pre-eminent law firms, with significant depth and range of resources across five continents.
As a single, fully integrated, global partnership, we pride ourselves on our approachable, collegial and team-based way of working.
We always strive to exceed the expectations of our clients, which include corporates from all the commercial and industrial sectors, governments, regulators, trade bodies and not-for-profit organisations.

A key priority for the Bank of England, Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is to put in place a stronger regulatory framework to promote operational resilience of firms and financial market infrastructures (FMIs).
While these proposals are tailored to the individual policy frameworks and supervisory approach of each respective authority, they share a common overarching approach to operational resilience. At KPMG we strongly encourage firms to take ownership of their own operational resilience and to prioritise based on the impacts to the public interest, as represented by the authorities’ objectives.
At KPMG we believe that strong operational resilience will provide strategic performance benefits to your firm, above and beyond regulatory compliance. KPMG can help your business understand and manage itself end-to-end, as a series of services, within the wider ecosystem, which will meet the regulators’ vision and which will identify opportunities for profit growth. We change the culture of your business to one where resilience is a strategic strength, essential to your organisation’s competitive advantage. The organisations we are have worked with to enhance their operational resilience include some of the UK’s largest universal and challenger banks, financial management infrastructure organisations, insurers and wealth managers. Our Operational Resilience practice is recognised as market leading.
