This article explores an important but little studied dimension of the ongoing transformation of banking markets: the growth of risk management and compliance as key governance functions and the focus on risk as a foundation stone for regulatory strategy.

Parallel developments reflecting convergence of norms and practice are observed in banking markets around the world.
