BearingPoint recognized as RegTech innovator with four products of the Abacus Solution Suite

Frankfurt, August 18, 2016 — Management and technology consultancy BearingPoint, which ranks among the leading providers of Risk and Regulatory Technology (RiskTech/RegTech), announced today that it has been recognized as a top performer in the first RegTech Supplier Performance Report 2016 by Market Fintech. Market Fintech is an experienced business and marketing consulting firm focussing on the emerging FinTech and RegTech industry. The first RegTech report analyzes the market coverage and performance of Regtech suppliers in order to give technology buyers from the financial services industry a sound basis for decision making.

The report investigates both new entrants and incumbents. BearingPoint ranks among the top performers in the categories “Regulatory Reporting Tools” and “Transaction Reporting and Monitoring”with products from its innovative Abacus Solution Suite. The positions are based on the number of total users, product go-to-market dates and established years.

With RegTech helping unlock and facilitate the delivery of regulatory requirements more efficiently and effectively than existing capabilities, it’s easy to understand why RegTech is now firmly on the agenda.
However, for compliance and IT teams, finding, understanding and validating proven RegTech solutions can be difficult. Now, with our report, we have facts and figures to support the performance of Regtech providers, wherein BearingPoint’s range of solutions ranks particularly well in the global market.
