RCM – Regulatory Compliance Management

Every year, more than 200 new regulatory issues and around 500 amendments to existing rules result in high expenditure related to their identification, evaluation and implementation. Using suitable tools for the implementation and support of regulatory processes can significantly reduce these expenses.

Do you want to know what additional costs will emerge in day-to-day business for the compliance function through the fulfilment of the minimum requirements for risk management (MaRisk)? How can you find ways and means of significantly reducing these costs? SKS Advisory has the answers.

This is because in the "Regulatory Compliance Management“ (RCM) solution we have pooled our extensive expertise in identifying and implementing regulatory requirements. The objective of RCM is to create a unique definition of a bank-wide regulatory portfolio that contains all the current and relevant new developments and amendments.

The compliance function acts as a central interface for all relevant issues

The regulatory process is implemented in parallel, using a standardised procedure and with clearly defined responsibilities. This ensures that the implementation of the new requirements is goal-oriented and, above all, cost-effective. The compliance function acts as a central interface, which maintains an overview of all the relevant issues and is always able to provide information about the respective current status for all projects. In this way, the compliance function can fully meet its specified requirements.

Support for the entire range of issues is provided by the RADAR data services as well as by the workflow tool RWC (Regulatory Workflow Center). RWC offers you the possibility of automatically entering the relevant regulatory guidelines from RADAR as well as of storing own requirements that are specific to a particular institution. The standard workflows that are implemented allow both efficient interaction as well as targeted communication between the compliance function and the divisions affected by the guidelines. Regulatory and internal guidelines are presented in a transparent way. The issues and measures derived from this are clearly allocated to the implementing divisions and people and the implementation status is logically documented. Furthermore, the complete life cycle of a regulatory requirement is mapped out so that there is no possibility of changes being made.
