TORCHLIGHT is an interactive web-based solution which helps you keep track of future legal and regulatory developments in the financial services sector.


In today's highly complex regulatory environment, staying abreast and keeping informed of future legal and regulatory developments is top of the agenda for regulatory and risk management teams, in-house counsel and knowledge managers. This is why we have developed TORCHLIGHT, which tracks future legal and regulatory developments in the financial services sector; looking specifically at Retail Banks, Commercial Banks, Insurance, the Payments Sector and Wealth and Asset Management firms.

For each topic TORCHLIGHT provides a summary of the issue, a chronological list of update notes and a series of links to other relevant material. It also provides an assessment of materiality and timing.

Topics can be presented graphically or as individual entries, to help users understand the relative time and preparation impact of the issues. A customised update alert system is also provided.

Content is provided by a firm wide team of legal experts comprising specialist Professional Support Lawyers, Associates and Partners so that any comment/opinion is relevant and tailored.
