Clearstream selects Abacus360 Banking for MAS 610 reporting
Frankfurt/Singapore, March 3, 2021 – BearingPoint RegTech, a leading international provider of innovative regulatory, risk, and supervisory technology solutions (RegTech, RiskTech, and SupTech), has won central securities depository Clearstream as a new customer in Singapore for its Abacus360 Banking solution. BearingPoint RegTech has thereby further expanded its market position in the APAC region.
MAS 610 reporting contains the balance sheet and off-balance sheet information of banks and their underlying details with the objective to promote market transparency for banks in Singapore.
MAS 610 applies to all banks in Singapore, including foreign-owned entities and has considerably increased the reporting requirements for banks. Starting January 2021 onwards, there will be a testing phase with go-live scheduled for July 2021.
We are delighted to enable Clearstream Singapore for MAS 610 reporting. With increased complexity on regulatory reporting within shorter timelines, the implementation of BearingPoint’s award winning Abacus360 Banking mitigates risks associated with regulatory reporting. The implementation marks an important milestone for the firm in Asia. We look forward to further success with Clearstream and to extend our footprint in the region.
