Amsterdam/Frankfurt, 30.01.2020 – BearingPoint RegTech, a leading international provider of innovative regulatory and risk technology solutions (RegTech and RiskTech), has won the State Bank of India Frankfurt as customer for its Abacus360 Banking Risk solution "IRRBB". SBI is already a BearingPoint RegTech customer and uses Abacus360 Banking for its EBA reporting and to meet German reporting requirements.
State Bank of India has been a BearingPoint RegTech customer for almost 25 years and uses Abacus solutions for regulatory reporting. Over the years, we have continuously expanded the scope of use of Abacus and have therefore decided to use Abacus360 Banking as a central platform for risk management as well. Our previous positive experience with the Abacus software and the consulting services provided by BearingPoint RegTech have encouraged us to take this step.
Frithjof Ramb, Vice President Systems, SBI Frankfurt
We are very pleased that SBI decided on our IRRBB module and will be using Abacus360 Banking as a central platform for both, regulatory reporting and risk management. A common platform will enable improvements in data consistency, a single point of truth for data, reduced complexity and overall less effort in change-the-bank processes.
Dr. Maciej Piechocki, Member of the Management Board, BearingPoint RegTech
The EBA guidelines from 2018 and their local adoption in Germany (BaFin Circular 06/2019) require financial institutions to measure their interest rate risks in the banking book (IRRBB) at least quarterly from an economic perspective (EVE). The Circular 06/2019 had to be implemented by banks by December 31, 2019 with the first submission of reporting templates to the German regulator, the Deutsche Bundesbank, in mid-February 2020. Our modularized, flexible software solutions on the Abacus360 platform help banks to implement regulatory changes consistently and efficiently in order to adhere to a tight schedule.
