Background

New regulatory capital rules require all bank assets to be tracked, monitored and reported in real-time by risk type. This mandated process is complicated and it prevents banks from effectively unlocking the full value of their capital. Failure to comply with capital management and reporting requirements will jeopardize banks’ continuing operations and new business activity. The FR Y-14 and DFAST reports require banks to access, validate and reconcile data from across the enterprise. This data is typically stored in multiple systems, across multiple locations, and represents varying degrees of accuracy and consistency.  Regulatory reporting, risk and finance managers are under pressure to create and deliver the reports in a timely and efficient manner, ensuring the highest levels of accuracy. They are also being challenged to build a more robust and automated framework that streamlines the process, manages ongoing regulatory updates and enhances operational efficiency.
