LONDON and NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 8, 2009) - FRSGlobal, the only global provider of risk reporting and regulatory reporting compliance solutions on a unified platform with coverage for over 40 countries, today announced that regulatory reporting experts -- Andrew Liegel and Selwyn Blair-Ford -- have provided insight into how the recent G20 Summit held in Pittsburgh will impact the financial services industry.

The video by Andrew Liegel is available here.

Selwyn Blair-Ford, Senior Domain Expert, FRSGlobal, commented:

"Some of these G-20 initiatives may change between now and final implementation, but the financial services industry should be under no illusion. These changes are coming and will change the way firms do business. Many of the changes will be costly. Those firms that are best prepared will have the best outcomes."

In August 2009, FRSGlobal created a report entitled: 'A comparison of global regulatory responses to the financial crisis' which has been updated following the G20 summit. The updated report can be found here and the main differences are summarized in this video.
