RISK, REWARD & REGULATION
The Infrastructure Forum published its latest report ‘Risk, Reward & Regulation’ in May 2021
This purpose of this paper, authored by Cathryn Ross, Group Regulatory Affairs Director at BT Group, is to draw out some changes and challenges that have commonalities across a number of regulated sectors and to prompt debate among those who may have useful levers at their disposal about how they may be addressed. All of this is in the interests of maintaining the effectiveness of regulation in UK, and our regulated sectors, to the benefit of consumers and citizens.
A regulatory expert has said that the paper is the best recent analysis that they have seen of the current (and potential future) state of economic regulation in the UK.
