In this episode of #WWRD, I talk about the difference between a Legal and a Regulatory counsel. Watch this video as I share my thoughts on how the approach of a legal counsel differs from that of a regulator's. This #WWRD episode covers two perspectives: 1. Regulator's perspective 2.

Being interviewed by the Central Bank can be quite stressful. Watch this video as I share my thoughts on PRISM rating change and the consequences for a firm performing poorly in a PRISM interview with the Central Bank.

BUT HOW MUCH PREPARATION? Does your preparation need to be intense or can you get away with a lighter version of preparation? And how do we know which level in which situation? One size does not fit all, by any means, and yet, with so many invitations to come meet the Regulator taking place right now, patterns are clearly emerging. Preparation patterns for instance: If it is only a single individual being called for what could be considered standard reasons, a lite preparatio

We received a query through our #WWRD - [What Would the Regulator Do] channel. A query that tends to show up daily. Every event, linkedin messages, phone calls, it's a popular con versation. Not necessarily one I wanted to take on here, but I've decided to take the plunge. This #WWRD episode covers two perspectives; 1. What I think is going on with Resources, really... 2. What I think the timing is going to be with getting resources on board. #WWRD - #CP86 - What's the story
We received a query through our #WWRD - [What Would the Regulator Do] announcement a week or so back It was our intention to interact more with you, leaving a door wide open for people to submit their questions as it relates to the Central Bank of Ireland. This particular query just landed and given the nature of the query, we felt it deserved a more timely response.

Birds of a feather tend to think, act, question, and want the same things. Diversity usually compels different conversations. Different people ask different questions. They are more inclined to challenge each others thinking to weave in multiple perspectives into one ideal output. Regulated firms are frustrated with trying to grow a business while being continuously invited to look back at past performance. The Regulator is looking for evidence that things are in fact differ

We ran an announcement over on Linkedin introducing the concept last night with an invitatio
