In the wake of ever increasing regulatory requirements, PBK supports financial services institutions in building an adequate internal control system, which in particular complies with the regulatory requirements. In this way, we support our clients in the field of Minimum Requirements for Risk Management (MaRisk) and minimum requirements for the compliance function according to §§ 63 ff. WpHG (MaComp).
Due to the embedding of PBK in the
Auditing Association group, our employees are regularly involved in the deposit protection audits of the Auditing Association. As a result, we constantly deal with regulatory issues and are familiar with the expectations of the BaFin with respect to the Institute.
