Spotting, knowing and making the right changes to the new UK rulebook will likely feel like having an hour to count every grain of sand in the Sahara during a sandstorm. There are two main factors that will influence the development of the new FS operating model post Brexit: RegTech and change management. Some firms will move quickly to sort out their approach and will gain competitive advantage. However, the ‘herd’ will move slowly and consultants, lawyers and technology providers will be the ultimate winners from the next decade.
