Regulated industries

Diese Seite auf: Deutsch

Regulated industries, such as the financial, energy and telecommunications sectors, are bound by tight regulatory regimes. The regulation experts from PwC advise companies on projects, including financial oversight legislation, and develop innovative solutions to energy and environmental challenges. PwC also provides support for businesses on pricing and compensation regulations, such as audits carried out in accordance with pricing laws.

Financial oversight

The Board has sole responsibility for compliance with financial oversight requirements – any breach will significantly damage the company’s reputation. PwC advises banks and investment companies, insurance companies, financial services providers and businesses, on the risks and inefficiencies involved in this area, and develops tailored solutions to issues. The focus is on conformity with current or future regulations, linking up to related areas such as risk management or financial accounting, and improvements in process and systems efficiency. more

Pricing and charging regulation

In the public sector and regulated markets, there is a growing requirement that charging systems applied to the use of infrastructure facilities be designed in a non-discriminatory, transparent and/or cost-oriented way. PwC provides advice and support on pricing to public and private companies from the energy and water sectors, transport (including public transit), the waste industry and telecommunications. Here, the specialists at PwC take into account the specific operating environment applying to public utilities and regulated markets. more

Environmental and energy regulation

Regulation of the environmental and energy markets is a hot topic. Water and sewage (on the environmental management side) and gas and electricity (on the energy management side), with their network-wide infrastructure, are characterised by monopolistic market structures. Yet these are now to be broken up and free market competition established in accordance with national and international policies. For the customers, this means that they will in future be able to choose their suppliers freely. PwC supports network providers in all issues relating to regulation and regulation management. more
