Risk Focus Adds Regulatory Reporting Advisory

Risk Focus has introduced Regulatory Reporting Advisory (RRA), a service designed to help clients comply with trade reporting regulations, meet aggressive deadlines and build solutions for regulatory compliance, including upcoming regulations such as Securities Finance Transaction Reporting (SFTR), which takes effect in early 2019.

Risk Focus RRA offers support for all aspects of regulatory reporting and controls. Workshops, health checks, assurance reviews, education and training aim to ensure the service provides stability in times of constant change. As the preferred implementation partner of RegTek Solutions, Risk Focus RRA has held on-site and remote workshops for clients, guiding them through changes made to European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) late last year and the DTCC Global Trade Repository.

Srikant Ganesan, Senior managing director at Risk Focus Financial Services Solutions, comments: “Risk Focus is the firm to turn to for expertise and advice related to trade and transaction reporting challenges, be it a health-check, a training session or a full-on implementation.”

Risk Focus RRA can help clients assess, select, build and implement control tools and systems around both existing and upcoming regulations. These cover all aspects of regulatory reporting, including key controls such as completeness and accuracy assurances.
