  • Cloud and IT outsourcing - Status quo of the market: Concerns vs. benefits.

  • Cooperation is built on trust – Unpacking the RegTech Factory concept: Realising Economies of Share by sharing infrastructure services and Regulatory Reporting as a Service and advantages of a regulatory reporting network.

  • Maintaining trust – The European experience and broader APAC story: Case studies.

The far-reaching transformation of the financial industry in past years – both in regulation and in the market – has led to rising costs and falling revenues for many players, directly impacting business models. This tense economic situation has been amplified by the COVID19 pandemic, making the topic of business continuity management increasingly relevant.

With institutions in the financial sector facing significant challenges, standardisation, industrialisation, and automation are logical ways of maximising economies of scale across borders.  We are seeing more and more financial institutions outsourcing processes that are not part of their core business, including regulatory reporting. However for some organisations, security and data privacy concerns remain.

Join our experts from BearingPoint and Microsoft as they discuss IT outsourcing and cloud computing in regulatory reporting. Gain insights from case studies and our panellists, as they share their experiences on how the benefits outweigh any concerns.
