Much has been written about the similarities and differences between art and science. In the current environment, a compliance officer needs to be a skilled performer - an artist - who interprets and is able to persuade a sometimes reluctant audience to understand and comply with myriad technical requirements - the science - of laws and regulations. It is this juxtaposition between these disciplines that we want to explore in our newest publication, The Art & Science of Compliance.
In this inaugural edition, we profile the Renaissance person of today - the Chief Compliance Officer. We also discuss the issues and challenges related to anti-money laundering transaction monitoring and highlight other recent regulatory developments. In future editions, we will continue to share our thoughts on the art of being a successful compliance officer in an environment of rapid change and growing complexity.
