The new FRSGlobal functionality builds upon Wolters Kluwer Financial Servicesâ business expansion in the Indian financial services market. The company recently announced that it is providing compliance and risk management solutions that have been specifically designed to help financial professionals in Indiaâs financial services market to comply with industry regulations. Further to this, Wolters Kluwer Financial Services recently launched the Compliance Resource Network (CRN) to the Indian Banking Market, which consolidates financial laws, regulations and commentary from across the globe on a single research platform, and complements FRSGlobalâs RegPro product suite.
FRSGlobalâs solution has been designed to address the complex reporting requirements faced by foreign banks operating in India and provides:
Automated regulatory reporting: The automated extraction of data from firmsâ multiple source systems to populate Department of Supervision Banking returns, regulatory reserve computation (Cash Reserve Ratios & Statutory Liquidity Ratios), various statistical and prudential returns and transaction reports means that firms can better ensure quality of data and its timely submission to the RBI.
230+ reporting templates: The application provides an extensive number of both financial (i.e. financial statements reporting) and non-financial, transaction-style reporting templates (i.e. high-volume, large exposure reporting, interest rate risk, liquidity and cash flow analysis, and transactional reporting).
Support for full range of financial products: The reporting application covers a wide range of financial products including derivatives, securities, repos, etc.
Automation of complex processing requirements: The application automates various processing requirements, such as average balance computation, profit and loss computation base on average rate, top exposure aggregation and ranking, collateral processing, etc.
Reporting in large volumes: The reporting application facilitates large volume reporting, especially for statistical, transactional and turnover data.
XBRL delivery: The application delivers eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) reporting in line with the RBIâs requirements.
Single data repository: The RBI outlines the need for a single reporting repository from which the regulator can query or obtain data, which FRSGlobalâs DataFoundation helps facilitate.
Steve Thurley, VP of Asia Pacific and Japan said: âThe aftermath of the financial crisis has led to regulators and governing bodies around the world realising that their policy and decision-making processes need to be more information intensive. This has led to the publication of new regulatory guidelines such as the recent RBI approach paper, which outlines how data from commercial banksâ core banking and other IT systems now has to be automatically sent to the RBI with a view to ensuring accuracy and integrity of data flow.â
Thurley continued: âThe paper also discusses how banks must ensure a seamless flow of data from their transaction server to their management information system (MIS) server, and then automatically generate all returns from this server, without any manual intervention. This kind of data architecture and delivery outlined by the RBI underscores the need for the FRSGlobal solution with its powerful solution set, and our unique ability to assist firms in India to navigate the new regulatory landscape.â
