The nature of the profession is changing. Deeper thought and consideration is being
given to issues around equality & diversity; emerging white collar crime; enhanced cooperation cross border/jurisdiction; and the importance of wellbeing. Regulators are

and what levers regulators have to affect change in a positive way?
