Group Legal, Compliance
Who We Are
Legal, Compliance and Secretariat (LCS) is responsible for the management of legal, regulatory and financial crime risk, and the administration of corporate secretariat responsibilities. We ensure that the conduct of business is consistent with risk appetite for legal/regulatory risk. We also maintain a program to mitigate legal/regulatory risks by appropriate identification, assessment, monitoring and reporting of such risks. LCS risk appetite is driven by the letter and spirit of laws and regulations, and by the expectations of our shareholders, our regulators and the communities which we serve.
Our stellar work has been recognised in the Financial Times, Innovative Lawyers Awards for Asia Pacific (2018-2019) and in Asian Legal Business, Southeast Asia Law Awards (2018).
