Frankfurt / Vienna, January 18, 2018 – Management and technology consultancy BearingPoint announced that Raiffeisen Bank International (RBI) has decided on its ABACUS/Transactions software solution to fulfil several transaction-based reporting requirements. With ABACUS/Transactions, RBI will submit the daily reports according to the revised Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) and the accompanying Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (MiFIR). BearingPoint, one of the leading providers of Regulatory and Risk Technology (RegTech/RiskTech), also offers the option to meet the reporting obligations under the ECB’s Money Market Statistical Reporting (MMSR), the revised European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) as well as the Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR) with ABACUS/Transactions.
As an important player in the financial market, we need to meet the whole range of transaction-based reporting requirements. With ABACUS/Transactions, we have found a software which can be used for various reporting types. This is time-saving, cost-effective, and will make our work much easier in the future, since we have to prepare and deliver the data only once.
Fariborz Nourani, Head of Division Head Office Operations at RBI
We are proud that one of Austria's leading commercial and investment banks has opted for ABACUS/Transactions. Regulatory requirements for banks are constantly changing, and when coupled with the growing complexity of financial products, our software solution helps customers successfully master these challenges. With the RBI project, we continue to drive our international growth strategy.
