Compliance aims to protect the bank, its clients and its employees against compliance risks. This entails the risk of failure to comply with laws, regulations and self-regulatory standards, code of conduct or generally accepted market standards; the risk of financial and reputational damage arising from (financial) crime and misconduct and/or illegal behaviour of clients, the bank and/or her employees. Effective management of compliance risks is an interplay between culture, compliance program pillars and Compliance Function.
