2022 Regulatory Field Guide: A Year of Revisiting the Past, Managing the Present, and Embracing the Future

February 09, 2022
The regulatory environment across the globe is as dynamic as any time in the last decade. We bring you this guide to light a path on your regulatory journey for 2022.

Non-financial measures of success are now central to how regulators view the totality of activities and practices of regulated entities.



– Adrian Whelan Senior Vice President, Global Head of Market Intelligence

The regulatory environment across the globe in 2022 is as dynamic as any time in the last decade. As we cautiously inch towards the return of social norms, regulators are looking to recalibrate some of the rules that were put in place before the pandemic, address contemporary topics, and harness a variety of nascent technologies.

Certainty is a scarce commodity in these unpredictable times, and new rules, revisions and changes to timelines are also likely to feature in 2022. Which brings us to the theme of this year’s Regulatory Field Guide: revisiting the past, managing the present, and embracing the future. To help abate the uncertainty a little, we have listened to what you have told us is important and bring you this guide to light a path on your regulatory journey for 2022. 

We have included a compilation of the articles below broken out by the past, present, and future themes – but we encourage you to download the complete guide.
