Management Challenges around Enhanced Reporting

Alan Hilton – Prudential Regulation EMEIA

  • 17 June 2013
challenge 1 you wouldn t start from here
Challenge 1: You wouldn’t start from here!
    • Existing disclosures are not without issues...
  • “Based on publicly available reports, the analysis shows considerable variation in average published mRWAs...
  • ...the quality of disclosures was found to be insufficient to allow investors and other interested parties to assess how much of the variation reflects differing levels of actual risk and how much is a result of other factors.”
      • Report on the Regulatory Consistency of Risk-weighted Assets for Market Risk.
      • Basel Committee, January 2013

Challenge 2: CRD IV is clear – the management body is accountable for all aspects of reporting and disclosure
    • Directive - Article 88 Governance Arrangements
  • “...arrangements shall comply with the following principles:
        • the management body must have the overall responsibility for the institution and approve and oversee the implementation of the institution's strategic objectives, risk strategy and internal governance;
        • the management body must ensure the integrity of the accounting and financial reporting systems, including financial and operational controls and compliance with the law and relevant standards;
        • the management body must oversee the process of disclosure and communications;”
    • Regulation - Article 189 Corporate Governance
  • “All material aspects of the rating and estimation processes shall be approved by the institution's management body or a designated committee thereof and senior management. These parties shall possess a general understanding of the rating systems of the institution and detailed comprehension of its associated management reports.”

Challenge 3: CRD IV is here and represents a substantial change in the way the UK Industry is Regulated


      • 20% of CRR/CRDIV rules are new or divergent from GENPRU/BIPRU
      • 29% of GENPRU/BIPRU rules will be removed under CRR/CRDIV
      • 6% of CRR/CRDIV rules contain provisions for the EBA to develop technical standards or allow the potential for a national discretion
      • 45% of CRR/CRDIV rules are equivalent or consistent
  • Further Guidance from the EBA
      • Regulatory or Implementing Technical Standards due from the EBA in around 100 subject areas
      • Many timetabled at or around CRD IV implementation date
      • EBA guidance on specific aspects of disclosure (materiality, confidentiality and frequency) by December 2014

Equivalent or consistent rules (majority with minor wording differences) 45%

Areas for EBA to develop technical standards or potential national discretion 6%

challenge 4 corep finrep and increased public disclosures present significantly increased demands
Challenge 4: COREP/FINREP and increased public disclosures present significantly increased demands
      • High level of data granularity, volumes. 9,000 individual cells
      • Increased slice and dice – currency, geography and legal entity
      • Potential need to redesign business processes and architecture
      • Requires reporting of 3,000 additional data items across 86 tables
      • Pervasive impact across finance, product control, risk and treasury operations
      • Significant systems/process change
      • Reporting needed 30 days after close – a challenge
      • Reconciliation of FINREP to Accounting
  • Public disclosure
      • New requirements and mandatory requirements including:
        • Diversity
        • Remuneration
        • Employee numbers by country & turnover by country
  • Pillar 3
      • Much enhanced
      • More granular
      • More standardised
      • New items – capital buffers, credit adjustments and credit mitigation
      • To include subsidiaries of material importance in local market

Challenge 5: The bar is raised in terms of regulators’ expectations for data aggregation and risk reporting
  • BCBS Principles for Effective Risk Data Aggregation & Risk Reporting
      • Calls for more advanced analytics, aggregation and reporting capabilities
        • Capital penalties explicit for non-compliance
        • Monitoring/enforcement by SIG and local regulators (e.g., PRA for UK HQ G-SIBs)

Governance &


Risk Data



Risk Reporting


Supervisory Review,

Tools & Cooperation


Data Architecture & IT Infrastructure

Accuracy & Integrity










Remedial actions & supervisory measures

Home/Host cooperation

  • Institutions designated as G-SIBs will need to meet the Principles within three years. Timeline for existing GSIBs is as follows:




  • Self assessment and implementation plans shared with FSB
  • Expected BCBS Compliance
  • Standards Implementation Group (SIG) to track G-SIB implementation of BCBS Principles

Management challenges around enhanced reporting

responding to the challenges a checklist
Responding to the Challenges: A checklist
  • Firms will need to revisit their approach to Systems & Controls under CRD IV
  • Are controls comprehensive? Appropriate? Effective?
  • Consistency of data across COREP, FINREP, Financial disclosures, Pillar 3, Bank of England, PRA & FCA will be difficult to manage.
  • Reporting activities across Finance and Risk will be increasingly run in parallel

Systems and Controls


  • Increased granularity of reporting will impact data quality tolerance & materiality thresholds
  • Data quality of new data will come into scope
  • Shorter timelines, more complex reporting, reduced adjustment options/capabilities
  • For COREP & FINREP, the data volume to be reviewed and approved is dependent on the dimensions each firm has to complete: reporting units, geographic and currency etc.
  • The traditional process of review and sign off needs to be considered in light of submission requirements.

Data quality

Review, sign-off and submission processes

  • The crossover between risk, finance and regulatory teams is increasing
  • The target operating model for a firm’s COREP/FINREP solution should take into account these overlaps to design the most effective and efficient process to reduce systems and people costs, dependencies, etc.
  • Timelines are short, quarterly releases in prospect, on-going regulatory developments (leverage, liquidity, RRP).
  • Many firms are pursuing a tactical route initially
  • New impetus to review firmwide reporting & converge architecture, systems and processes

Integrated Fin and Reg Reporting


  • Reporting Teams will need to switch overnight to new requirements this will impact training & ability to adapt to change.
  • Firms reliant on tactical solutions may have manual processes, requiring additional resourcing; this is not a one-off cost.
  • Optimal format for disclosure unclear.
  • Disclosure may impact on a firm’s focus on accuracy of reporting
  • Impact of disclosure on a firm’s business needs to be assessed and managed
  • Supporting qualitative disclosures
