Baringa 2020 CASS Insight Survey - Week 1: CASS in Lockdown

2020 marks the fourth year of Baringa’s annual CASS Survey. This year ~50 participants have shared their views on a wide variety of topics, including governance and culture, annual audits, technology, and of course the impact of Covid-19 on CASS operations and compliance. 

This year for the first time we will be publishing the results of the survey in a series of bite-size papers over the course of October before consolidating these into a single summary report which we will launch during a webinar presentation on November 5.

This is the first of four papers to be released and it will examine a summary of the survey population, followed by a closer look at some of the concerns and challenges encountered by firms responding to the Covid-19 crisis. Subsequent topics to be covered are as follows: 

  • Week 2: Audit, trends across risks, controls, incidents, and breaches 

  • Week 3: Technology, governance and culture 

  • Week 4: Outsourcing, firms’ biggest risks, challenges, and costs
