High scores for organizational strength and core technology ensure entry into prestigious ranking

Frankfurt, February 11, 2016 — BearingPoint, management and technology consultancy and standard software provider for regulatory solutions, announced today that it has been ranked in the 2016 RiskTech100® report compiled by Chartis, a leading provider of research and analysis on global risk technology markets.

The RiskTech100 report evaluates the world’s most significant companies in the risk technology sector and is acknowledged globally as the most comprehensive and prestigious study of risk technology vendors. Bearing Point applied for the first time. The best scores were given for core technology and organizational strength. Core technology covers data management, risk analytics and reporting; organizational strength focuses on sales execution, financial strength, implementation & support and thought-leadership. High scores were also given in the category “innovation,” acknowledging BearingPoint’s strength in the development of innovative products along the Regulatory Value Chain.

This year we have had a record number of vendor applications for the RiskTech100. This has had an impact on the number of new entries. Also there have been a number of significant shifts in ranking position due to mergers and acquisitions. BearingPoint’s entry into the RiskTech100 reflects the strength of their portfolio of RegTech products, their continued investment in product innovation and their strong position in a number of key geographical markets.
