Digital, fully integrated and automated "regulatory reporting factory"
BearingPoint RegTech offers with the international RegTech Factory a digital, fully integrated and automated "reporting factory", which aims to achieve significant economies of scale for participating banks and financial service providers.
The regulatory costs for banks are enormous. Low interest rate environment, digitalization and new competitors put massive pressure on the revenues in the financial sector. At the same time, financial service providers are confronted with further increasing regulatory requirements from supervisors in Europe. Therefore, banks must consider completely new cooperation and industrialization models. Standardization, industrialization and automation are logical ways of exploiting economies of scale across borders. With the RegTech Factory, BearingPoint RegTech is breaking new ground in Europe and significantly expanding the scope of action for banks. By working closely with regulators and supervisors in building the RegTech Factory offering, we also help to increase the efficiency of regulatory reporting while improving the quality of data and processes for the supervisory authorities.
BearingPoint RegTech is already the leading provider of regulatory reporting services in the DACH region and has been serving banks, insurers and asset managers, who have outsourced this critical area as a so-called "managed service", for 15 years. The company currently has around 70 managed services customers. Managed service can increase cost efficiencies to a certain extent. More options offer more comprehensive solutions such as the Austrian reporting factory AuRep or UKRep for Great Britain. In particular, the experience in the areas of technology, economic efficiency and governance gained from the AuRep project, which in many countries is now regarded as a pioneer of innovative approaches to regulatory reporting, has been incorporated into the development of the RegTech Factory.
However, the RegTech Factory is about much more than mere cost savings or the realization of other benefits compared to the existing managed service model. By setting up an automated reporting factory with standardized processes, the quality of regulatory reporting can be significantly improved across the industry, thus significantly benefitting both the supervisory authority and the supervised institution. It also makes a major contribution to harmonization and transparency.
As a general rule, banks can concentrate on their core business as a result of the outsourcing; BearingPoint RegTech not only develops and implements the software, but also operates it.

With the RegTech Factory, we are effectively setting a new market standard. Financial institutions can particularly benefit from our extensive regulatory experience and our good cooperation with regulators and supervisors. Our goal is to ensure that the RegTech Factory not only meets the expectations of the reporting institutions, but also those of supervisory authorities. With our solutions, we want to contribute to global financial stability.
