T. Rowe Price’s Nimble Approach to Managing Global Copyright 

Upcoming Webinar: 13 May 2020, 1:00pm EDT

Financial services professionals understand the importance of regulatory compliance both for maintaining integrity and accountability in business, as well as the role that it plays in helping earn the trust of consumers that is critical to the success of their organizations.

In an industry with constantly shifting markets and regulatory landscape, staying on top of change is paramount.  From financial advisors responding to unsolicited requests for information from customers to business analysts who need to support their recommendations with documentation, professionals in the financial services sector share information an average of 13 times per week with 20 people, according to Outsell’s 2019 Information Seeking, Consumption and Use Survey (US). With 42% of that information coming from external sources, this level of content sharing could translate to up to 107 potential instances of copyright infringement per employee per week (compared with the cross-industry average of 56 potential infringements per week).

If recent weeks following the outbreak of COVID-19 have shown us anything, it’s that we need to be adaptable and nimble in our approach to maintaining business continuity, especially in the financial industry. Up-to-date information is needed more than ever in order to respond quickly, alleviate fears, and help teams, partners, stakeholders and clients make well-informed decisions.

At the same time, in-house counsel and others managing the exchange of information throughout the global organization must think strategically and identify efficient processes to ensure the company remains compliant with copyright laws worldwide.
