Belgium-based bpost bank has chosen Wolters Kluwer’s Finance, Risk & Reporting business to provide its regulatory reporting and AnaCredit software for its operations in the country.
OneSumX Regulatory Reporting uses a single source of data to ensure consistency, reconciliation and accuracy and includes the firm’s Regulatory Update Service. This unique service is maintained by Wolters Kluwer experts who actively monitor regulation in approximately 30 countries.
AnaCredit is the European Central Bank project to set up a dataset containing detailed information on individual bank loans in the euro area, harmonized across all Member States. Wolters Kluwer’s integrated, scalable OneSumX AnaCredit solution uses grid and in-memory computing to handle the large data volumes required by the extensive regulation. This enables faster processing time and a more flexible operational environment for end users. In-memory processing preserves data lineage at each functional stage enabling more transparent reporting and full confidence in the reporting process leading to lower risk of mis-reporting.
“AnaCredit introduces a step-change in the amount of data that banks are required to report on and on such a frequent basis - daily in some cases,” noted Pierre-Aymar de Potter, Chief Financial Officer at bpost bank. “As a result we required an expert in the field to ensure we are comprehensively managing our AnaCredit and wider reporting obligations. Wolters Kluwer was the natural choice.”
“Wolters Kluwer is delighted to have been chosen by bpost bank to provide its AnaCredit and regulatory reporting software,” commented Kris Van Bavel, Managing Director, EMEA, for Wolters Kluwer’s Finance, Risk & Reporting business. “We continue to add clients across Benelux and the rest of Europe and expect this trend to continue particularly due to AnaCredit.”
