This section contains four questions, each worth 10 marks. Candidates should answer all questions.

Question 1 (10 marks)
Describe how, as the compliance officer of a firm in a jurisdiction and sector of your choice, you would prepare for and manage a regulatory inspection visit. In your answer you should highlight, through the inclusion of illustrative examples, the potential consequences for the firm if this is not managed appropriately.

Question 2 (10 marks)

There are many skills required by a compliance officer in order to successfully undertake their broad range of activities. Select one of these that you believe to be the single most important skill and critically evaluate this belief, using the example of a senior compliance role in a sector and jurisdiction of your choice.

Question 3 (10 marks)

With reference to any recent developments with which you are familiar, assess how increased focus on corporate governance issues has impacted upon a sector and jurisdiction of your choice. Illustrate your answer with appropriate examples.

Question 4 (10 marks)

Consumer protection is one of the central regulatory objectives. Discuss, through the use of relevant examples or illustrations, what impact failings in this regulatory objective could have on achievement of the other central regulatory objectives and on the regulatory environment overall if these were found to be widespread.

Section B

This Section Contains Three Questions, Each Worth 20 Marks. Candidates Should Answer All Questions.

Question 5 (20 marks)

With reference to a jurisdiction and regulated sector of your choice, discuss why and how regulation has evolved over recent years (for example, from a mainly rules-based approach to a more principles-based, outcome-focused regime). Show, with the appropriate use of a relevant example, how this has impacted upon the regulation of a firm of your choice from a practical perspective.

Question 6 (20 marks)

Research and evaluate two of the key initiatives that have been implemented in a jurisdiction of your choice as a consequence of the global financial crisis of 2008. Based on your research and evaluation, comment upon their actual or potential effectiveness, supporting your answer with appropriate illustrative examples.

Question 7 (20 marks)

The values of ethics and integrity are essential elements of any compliance framework and embedding these within the framework can have a significant positive impact upon the culture of the organisation. The embedding of such values and their manifestation within the organisation also impacts on the organisation’s relationship with its regulator.

Consider the views expressed in the above statement and discuss these in the context of their relevance for the firm’s relationship with its regulator(s), supporting your views with appropriate examples.
