Overview

Agility is key to ensuring regulatory compliance.

Two parallel developments are driving a bank’s agility to regulatory compliance initiatives. First is, ‘SupTech’ that helps supervisors in managing regulatory compliance of the licensed units, prominent among them being Aurep and FCA’s Digital Regulatory Reporting (DRR).
The second development is the emergence of ‘RegTech’. This is done by players who focus on various components of the regulation piece-by-piece so that a cluster of them can be stringed to accomplish record processing times by deploying new age technologies.

The main catalysts driving adoption of regulatory technologies are

  1. Increasing regulatory requirements
  2. Hefty regulatory fines and the ballooning compliance costs
  3. Increased digital adoption especially in the aftermath of COVID-19
  4. Increased funding for RegTech companies
  5. Unmatched data analytics & technology provided by RegTech solutions.

Steps for regulatory compliance

Increased adoption of online banking, accentuated further by the pandemic, has necessitated development of new tools and solutions that can digitally handle most of the regulatory validations whether on customer onboarding or for payment transactions. Digital enablement acts as a good counter to the rising cost of regulation and significantly reduces the post-event processing.

Key approaches followed by banking leaders to accelerate regulatory compliance are as follows:

Online Transactions Compliance

Banks are aiming to achieve compliance by using a portfolio of tools to address Know Your Customer (KYC) and Customer Due Diligence (CDD) including access to public as well as accredited sources for validation of image, record, and the validity for customer onboarding. Financial crime mitigation tools are used for validating the payments (especially international) covering post event rules governing value, volume and velocity. The access and security is enhanced through multi-layer identification covering person, location, device and authentication.

Risk Management

It is aimed at meeting the requirements of BCBS 239, Basel III/IV and stress testing. As against building these reports on top of the transaction systems, banks are moving the relevant data to a data store or data lake and use the modelling, cleansing, and reporting solution capabilities. The IT related risks are managed through a portfolio of tools that handle access, scanning, licensing terms and Business Continuity Planning (BCP).

Compliance

It addresses both offline AML and IFRS compliance. While there is no common tool that handles both these areas, they are often grouped together . The availability of data extraction and annotating software helps in purveying the various legislative notes, orders, and regulations faster. Usage of AI, NLP and ML helps in transforming contextual data to a structured format for search and analysis. Further, the developments on reference data across the regions using digital formats have made people identification easier, thereby bringing down false positives by nearly 50%.

Regulatory Reporting

While on one hand SupTech is developing, on the other hand, reporting solutions with similar features like the common data model with vocabulary and mapping to currently used terms (via technologies of data streaming, Big Data, AI, ML and NLP etc.) have made the requirements less challenging.
