Professionals in PwC Public Sector LLP may be subject to a government security investigation and may need to meet related eligibility requirements for access to classified information.
The Financial Services industry is highly regulated by federal and state regulators within the sectors.
Due to the highly regulated nature of the industry, our clients often require consulting services to help them respond to regulatory requirements and expectations, including those arising from examinations and enforcement actions. Under Firm policy, all potential Regulatory Consulting engagements (including those where PwC is asked to be an Independent Consultant) for financial services clients (and clients in other industries) require RCC consultation.
In this regard, the Firm has established the Regulatory Consulting Center (RCC) to help our professionals assess opportunities and navigate the risks associated with performing Independent Consultant and Regulatory Consulting engagements.
