We assist the financial institutions in the implementation of the adequate governance, processes and systems to set up the financial reporting in compliance with the requirements set by regulators and the different stakeholders.
Reporting to prudential authorities (Corep, Finrep, Schema A,…) represents an important part of the reporting processes managed by the financial institutions. The ever-increasing requirements of the past few years create huge challenges for these institutions. The quality of this reporting is however essential to maintain the relationship with the authorities and the regulators.
We support the finance departments with the implementation of new prudential reporting requirements. We also improve and redesign reporting processes, to optimize the preparation of the reporting to the various authorities (ECB, National Bank of Belgium, FSMA...). Additionally, we address staffing needs during closing periods by insourcing our experts into our client’s reporting teams.
