“Control and patrol” roles— jobs in compliance, risk, audit and the regulators - are important, never more so than after the 2007-08 crisis. So why is there often that mixture of self-deprecation, humour and — yes — weariness by the good folk doing them? Having worked in regulatory and compliance roles for well over a decade, I’ve given this a good deal of thought and often chatted about it with contacts of mine who also do these jobs. DerivSource published my article which gives four reasons why I believe control and patrol roles throw up some specific challenges, but why it’s far from all bad. Find the link below.
