T-REX – your Tailored Regulatory Exchange

The regulatory landscape is always shifting. How do you keep up?

T-REX stands for Tailored Regulatory Exchange. It is a tailored service that monitors and summarises regulatory changes that are relevant to your industry. As a subscriber to this service, you receive a monthly tailored newsletter (T-REX), and exclusive access to a database of previously published articles.

This service has been providing value to Responsible Managers and Compliance staff of AFSL and ACL holders since 2004. It covers Financial Services Regulation, Anti-Money Laundering & Counter-Terrorism Financing, and Consumer Credit Regulation updates.

Benefits of the service

  • Training. You can include T-REX on your training register to help demonstrate that you are maintaining your knowledge and organisational competence as required of Responsible Managers (RMs). It can also help you meet your AML/CTF training requirements.

  • Get answers. You can comment or ask questions about any of our articles – direct from your tailored newsletter, or via the database by logging into your online account.

  • Update your procedures. We include tips to update your procedures, where relevant.

  • Peace of mind. Know that regulatory changes that affect your business are less likely to “slip through the cracks”.

  • Research tool. We can save you time by helping to guide your research: we include links to various sources for you to explore in more detail.

  • Save time. The newsletter is tailored to your industry group. If you’re not an AML/CTF reporting entity, for example, we won’t tell you about changes to the law relating to AML/CTF.

  • Industry commentary. We add our own thoughts and observations acquired “from the field”, in the varying capacities of our authors as lawyers and compliance consultants.
