Across almost every sector, businesses are feeling the growing impact of regulation. In the financial services sector, for example, the light touch regulation of the pre-crisis era has been replaced with a new attitude to capital buffers and remuneration packages. In the energy sector, technology innovation and climate change mean new regulations are coming thick and fast. And in the life sciences, pharmaceutical companies need regulator approval to see returns on the billions they invest in developing new products.
