After the successful “Go-Live” of Solvency II reporting for clients in over 20 European countries during the summer of this year, BearingPoint has won best regulatory reporting software competition.

London / Frankfurt, November 18, 2015 — BearingPoint’s ABACUS/Solvency II platform was awarded “Best Regulatory Reporting Software” at the annual Insurance Risk Awards in London on November 11, 2015. Awards are given in categories covering risk practitioners in insurance companies, ALM and insurance solutions teams in banks, technology providers and consultants.

The Insurance Risk Awards is a global measure of success in the financial services insurance industry, and we congratulate BearingPoint with ABACUS for the best regulatory reporting software. This company has demonstrated commitment and success in supplying innovative and efficient technology to our industry.

Robert Mannix for Insurance Risk

The recognition as best regulatory reporting software makes us very proud as it shows our commitment to successfully implement regulatory frameworks by working closely with our insurance clients. It demonstrates our market strength and leadership in the regulatory domain, which is mainly based on our innovative ‘RegTech‘ ABACUS solutions along the regulatory value chain.

BearingPoint’s pan-European reporting solution offers a number of additional benefits to insurers: flexible data consolidation across complex IT landscapes, statutory and management reporting functions including XBRL, multi-language capability, as well as a Europe-wide network of Solvency II consultants. Furthermore, revisions due to regulatory changes are implemented centrally within ABACUS, helping insurers avoid the need for continuous adaptations and testing in-house. This feature is appealing not only to global players, but also to small and mid-size insurers across Europe who otherwise face the cost and risks of trying to “go it alone.”
