Commonly used tools for Regulatory Reporting in Financial Institutions

In our last blog, we discussed various stages of new regulatory reporting. Regulatory reporting is vital to the supervisory process, and a core mechanism for identifying risk, ensuring compliance, and achieving our operational objectives.

Growing regulatory demand calls for a technological solution. Without it, compliance managers can spend unnecessary time focusing on the tactical difficulties of reporting and manually amending their reporting. However, with the right technology, you can spend just a few minutes a day and minimal effort, reviewing your reporting files and making sure they are submitted on time. 

With your new free time, you can focus on critical reporting issues in close to real-time, further increasing reporting accuracy and reducing risk.

There are multiple software vendors with solutions for regulatory reporting in various jurisdictions with a broad customer base. They have a regulatory reporting system that collects data from a variety of systems, cleanses it, and creates and populates regulatory reports. These tools provided by multiple software vendors may also perform the electronic delivery of this data.

Let's see the common regulatory compliance tools available:
