Whether identified by the regulator or through internal monitoring, review work can be costly and time consuming both from the view of getting the work completed to the considerable senior management time in overseeing the process and making sure it is fully completed. The last thing any firm needs is an incomplete review or lack of record keeping that requires the whole exercise to be repeated. Leave no stone unturned, make sure every aspect of the review is covered off and be certain you can evidence the work is completed.
The important thing often missed from reviews are the lessons to be learned that avoid these things happening again. Identifying what went wrong and the reasons for it are, in the long term, far more important than the work itself, however difficult that may be to realise at the time.
