With its international RegTech Factory, BearingPoint RegTech offers a digital, fully integrated and automated "reporting factory" that helps to achieve significant economies of scale for participating banks and financial service providers.

The low-interest-rate environment, digitalization, and new competitors are putting massive pressure on revenues. At the same time, financial service providers are having to deal with increasing regulatory requirements in Europe, and those regulatory costs are enormous. In response, financial players 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 that banks can take. 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 that have outsourced this critical area as a so-called "managed service" for 15 years. BearingPoint RegTech currently has around 70 customers for its managed services. Managed service can increase cost efficiencies to a certain extent. Further benefits are offered by more comprehensive solutions such as the Austrian reporting factory AuRep or UKRep for Great Britain. In many countries, the AuRep project is now regarded as a trailblazer of innovative approaches to reporting. The experience gained from this project in the areas of technology, economic efficiency, and governance was incorporated into the development of the RegTech Factory.

However, the RegTech Factory is about much more than cost savings or the realization of other benefits compared to our 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 authorities and the supervised institutions. It also makes a significant 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.
