TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2014 /CNW/ - As the Canadian banking environment continues to shift with the forces of regulatory change, evolving customer and investor demands and new technologies, banks need strategies in place to continue to grow. According to EY's Canadian banking insights report, banks need to adapt to stay ahead of the curve.

Evolving demands shaping the landscape identifies four topics reflective of the current economic and regulatory environment that Canadian banks should consider:

  • The evolving role of the branch and implications on current staffing models
  • Preventing and detecting fraud using forensic data analytics
  • Changing expectations of audit committees related to their oversight of external auditors
  • Developments in FATCA requirements for Canadian financial institutions

"As these trends continue to evolve, so will the impact they have on Canadian banks," says Andre de Haan, EY's Canadian financial services leader. "But, with the right knowledge and strategies, companies can seize the opportunity to take advantage of change and continue to grow."
