DKB selects RegTech Factory and Abacus360 Banking to meet its regulatory reporting requirements
Frankfurt, February 18, 2021 – Deutsche Kreditbank AG (DKB) will use the full-service offering of BearingPoint RegTech to meet its regulatory reporting requirements. Having been a long-time customer of BearingPoint RegTech´s advisory division, the direct bank has now also decided on the reporting software Abacus360 Banking as well as the RegTech Factory. The crucial factors for the DKB´s decision were a full-service offering and Abacus360 Banking´s forward-looking technology. In outsourcing operations to the Factory, particular value is placed on sustainability and the continuous optimization of operational processes.
DKB will use Abacus360 Banking to meet the requirements of German and European regulatory reporting, including AnaCredit, CoRep and liquidity reporting. DKB already reached the first implementation milestone when the bank successfully submitted its first AnaCredit reports to the Bundesbank from Abacus360 Banking at the beginning of January 2021. The application is provided on the digital RegTech Factory as a managed service. In addition to the operation of the software, BearingPoint RegTech therefore also takes on further tasks and processes of the technical operation for DKB to fulfill its regulatory reporting requirements.
We were looking for a service provider that would particularly meet our own requirements on our way to becoming a TechBank. Market leadership and especially technological pioneering were therefore crucial in our decision. With BearingPoint RegTech, we now have an experienced partner at our side with whom we can develop modern and forward-looking solutions for regulatory reporting.
Armin Hermann, Head of the Finance Division, DKB
We have been supporting DKB in the advisory field for more than three years. Now the bank has decided to go with our full-service offering and thus additionally employ Abacus360 Banking and the RegTech Factory. We will efficiently integrate these into DKB´s organization and processes for optimal utilization. Outsourcing of software operation helps our customers to respond quickly to regulatory change. We are looking forward to a trusting and sustainable collaboration with DKB.
