Financial regulatory requirements, as it pertains to risk management, continue to evolve as regulators seek to assess the impact of current strain on the financial system and economy and to tighten regulations, which subject financial institutions to certain requirements, restrictions, and guidelines.

Regulatory frameworks are designed to provide transparency via regular and ongoing financial and risk reporting. This brings focus for organizations to evaluate their current reporting infrastructure, and refine their tools and capabilities. Non compliance brings with it serious risks: fines and penalties, a compromised reputation, as well as overexposure to risk and serious profitability loss, or worse.

ABC risk management and regulatory solutions include projects streamlined to various regulatory requirements:

  • Basel II
  • Basel III
  • Market Risk
  • Credit Risk
  • Operational Risk
  • Liquidity Risk
  • Risk Data Aggregation - BCBS239
