IBA Panel Discussion: Data Sustainability in Regulatory Reporting

As the volume and level of detail of data requirements by financial institutions grow, and as they struggle to manage the regulatory impacts of COVID-19, it is important for firms to develop a better view of dataset commonalities and approaches that will help them achieve sustainable data and cross-report reconciliation.

Join AxiomSL in the webinar on Data Sustainability as we discuss with the panel of experts on:

  • What is the current Regulatory Reporting landscape for a Foreign Bank in Japan in the context of Data Sustainability?
  • What elements are required to create sustainability and manage regulatory changes?
  • What are the most important elements necessary to deliver accuracy in Data Sustainability?
  • What does it mean to implement the concept of auditability in the reporting process?
