Compliance and Risk Management
Financial Institutions continue to face pressure from regulators, shareholders and directors to improve their compliance requirements in areas like Basel II, Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID), Solvency II, KYC and AML. However, there has been a lack of consensus as to where the institutions should focus their efforts in meeting these challenges ahead of them. A number of practical considerations constrain the compliance development efforts.
A successful compliance implementation requires the ability to take an enterprise wide view of risk events across multiple systems and to deliver highest quality data with complete drill down capabilities into the compliance solution. Apart from Consulting and IT strategy, ITC Infotech offers Testing and Data Maintenance for such implementations.
