FRSGlobal, a part of Wolters Kluwer Financial services, is increasing its footprint in the Middle East by introducing reporting capabilities for banks operating in Bahrain into its global regulatory solution.
FRSGlobal’s regulatory reporting solution automates report compilation and submission to the national regulator – helping save Bahrain fi rms’ valuable time and resources, and helping ensure compliance with latest requirements on an ongoing basis via the FRSGlobal regulatory update service.
The solution will specifi cally help enable authorised fi rms to submit the regulatory reports more efficiently, accurately and on time to the Central Bank of Bahrain.
Roy Barnes, head of Middle East operations for FRSGlobal, said, “In comparison to many countries around the world, firms in Bahrain have emerged from the global financial crisis relatively unscathed. The Central Bank of Bahrain’s recent consultation paper on liquidity risk for conventional banks follows the best practice principles of the Basel Committee and clearly outlines the need for firms in the region to have a strong integrated risk and reporting framework in place to keep them as prepared as possible against future crises.
“Banks in the regions also need to provide vital intelligence and analytics to the business and ultimately improve their capabilities to optimise performance and minimise risk.”
