High quality data and effective technology should be at the heart of a profitable and sustainable bank. The regulatory reporting burden on banks has increased massively over recent years, and is set to increase even further over the next few years.

Increased regulatory requirements and more intensive supervision have driven an almost insatiable appetite for data among regulators. Regulators are using data to:

 

  • monitor adherence to regulatory requirements;
  • support stress testing;
  • answer one-off information requests;
  • provide the raw materials for recovery and resolution planning;
  • open a lens on non-bank financial channels; and
  • access system-wide data for macro-prudential policy purposes.

 

In addition, regulators have focused increasingly on the public disclosure of information and various regulatory initiatives on know your customer, sanctions, tax, data protection and the treatment of both retail and wholesale customers. These all carry significant implications for data and technology, while the sharper spotlight on off-shoring risk and cyber security and resilience will surely be converted into further regulatory requirements on data and technology in due course.

 

This regulatory intervention raises fundamental questions about the data and technology that the senior management of banks should be using to run their businesses. These issues are examined in depth in this chapter of Evolving Banking Regulation (EBR).
