Financial Crime Target Operating Model

P2 were asked to support a European headquartered global bank

The Situaton
  • The organisation had received negative feedback following a recent regulatory visit
  • As a result, it had been the subject of an FCA Section 166 review
  • A skilled person was in the process of being appointed to lead the s.166.
  • Part of the regulatory assessment had identified a general weakness in the operating model that was in place to oversee the Financial Crime capability of the bank
  • The bank had decided to set up a central Design Authority to oversee the programme of change and the design and set up of the new Target Operating Model (TOM).
How P2 FinCrime helped
  • Supported the organisation throughout the review
  • Sat on the Design Authority and provided SME insights around industry best practices and lessons learned
  • Worked with the Skilled Person to agree on the outcomes required to close TOM issues
  • Revisited the target dates and managed regulatory expectations around achievability
  • Baselined the plan across all TOM deliverables
  • Defined the evidence required to back issue closure
  • Provided a central control point for TOM related issues across the programme
  • Worked with stakeholders to establish the key elements of the TOM
  • Developed the Tom deliverables around People, Process, Systems & Controls
  • Worked with individual issue owners to agree on outcomes and timelines
  • Managed the day to day risks, issues and dependencies across the programme.
The Outcome
  • The organisation improved its underlying Financial Crime Operating Model
  • We were able to re-baseline the programme and meet the revised dates
  • Over the agreed timescale all issues were closed or mitigated to an acceptable level
  • The Financial Crime BAU capability was improved and a sustainable model was put in place for the future
  • The organisation improved its relationship with the regulator based on achieving the goals that were agreed.
