Regulatory reporting for financial services


The Federal Reserve System relies on the timely and accurate filing of report data by domestic and foreign financial institutions. The data collected from these regulatory reports facilitates early identification of problems that can threaten the safety and soundness of reporting institutions and ensures timely implementation of legal corrective actions.. CFOs are required to attest to the accuracy of their reports for capital assessments and stress testing.

Regulatory reporting is a critical activity for financial institutions and requires a concerted effort from risk, finance, and IT. Many financial organizations have expressed frustration with the high level of redundancy, dependence on manual processes, and opacity of their regulatory reporting processes. We believe that automation and technology-enabled data management are critical elements of an agile, robust reporting function that will allow financial services companies to be more proactive as new requirements arise.
