Major Challenges

· Surveillance projects currently have significant business and technology focus in HSBC, as well as across the market.
· The Surveillance transformation programme is a ‘Key Initiative' for GBM, with GBM EXCO and Group Board level visibility. There is an extremely fast rate of change and high delivery expectation.
· These are global, Front-to-back, cross asset class projects with many dependencies and a matrix of stakeholders.
· Ability to implement and leverage evolving, cutting edge technology that is new in the industry.
· The global Regulatory Surveillance department will have doubled in size over 2016 and 2017. As a result, many Surveillance SME's will be unfamiliar with our systems, processes, concepts and challenges. They will need educating and clear strong, focused communication. Scope needs to be clearly defined, communicated and managed ongoing as user numbers grow, and requirements inevitably increase as system benefits become clearer.
· The Strategy, Transformation and Change team is a relatively new team, in a department that it going through a large amount of organisational change. Although roles and responsibilities between the Change, SME and technology teams have been defined, they need to be further refined and embedded.
· We are required to respond to many demanding regulator-driven requirements (across various jurisdictions), whilst trying to transform how we perform surveillance and respond to pressure from internal control and audit groups. There is a tension between responding to these three drivers which makes prioritisation significantly and has created an environment where demand significantly exceeds supply.
