Information Builders and Capital Markets Consulting have launched a solution to support investment banks and regulators in meeting the new demands of risk data aggregation and regulatory reporting.
This includes the upcoming regulations, PERDARR (Principles for Effective Risk Data Aggregation and Risk Reporting) which come into force in 2016.
The joint offering delivers a best of breed data transformation, integration, governance and management platform around risk data aggregation and risk reporting. It enables the transformation of data and the data management culture within investment banks, ensuring that data is properly prepared, maintained, managed and governed to meet changing regulations and provide competitive edge. It is based on Capital Markets Consulting's expertise in regulatory, risk and finance change delivery combined with Information Builders' data integration and integrity solutions.
For the investment banking community, the platform will enable firms to better calculate aggregated risks through accurate, complete, timely and consistent access to regulatory, financial and risk related data. This can help lead to enhanced reputation through better risk profiling, meaning improved decision making and more transparent reporting.
Furthermore, it allows regulators to have increased insight into the systematic risks that may be apparent in the banking system through improved access to better maintained, more accurate data across the investment banking community.
