EBA Stress test: FINARIS provides expertise and the right tool

As part of the required regulatory testing of asset quality and the stress test in 2014, several banks have charged FINARIS with implementing core tasks and responsibilities. In addition to consultants with experience and know-how, FINARIS successfully uses its own RapidRep Reporting Suite in these projects.

Over the past twelve years, FINARIS could already prove specialist know-how in areas like regulatory reporting or market risk in different projects of the financial sector. Especially with the “toughest stress test” for European banks (The Guardian, 29/04/2014), however, the RapidRep Software developed by FINARIS also shows its strengths particularly well: high volumes of data have to be tested and provided in a repeatable and transparent manner. At the same time, numerous institution-specific requirements need to be considered. RapidRep offers just that – efficiently, plausible and automated.

For current special prudential requirements like for example reporting the funding plans from 2015 on (final guidelines were just published by the EBA end of June), FINARIS is thus very well positioned and prepared to also support your project with expertise and the right tools based on experience in these exact areas.
