New research undertaken by analyst firm Aite Group and Fenergo finds that capital market firms are actively moving toward a more centralized client onboarding and legal entity data management framework to provide a single point of access to client data and a consolidated view of a client across the enterprise.
New data management research published by Fenergo and FIMA (Financial Information Management Association) shows that regulatory/compliance data requirements and existence of data silos are top priorities and areas of concern for financial institutions in 2013. Report available for download.
At a time of unprecedented regulatory unrest, financial institutions are struggling to determine how they will comply with all the new regulations making their way into the world of financial services. New regulations, such as FATCA, Dodd-Frank, EMIR and MiFID, as well as enhancements to existing AML and CDD regulations, are placing even more demands on already stretched compliance, data management and onboarding teams. In this paper, Fenergo outlines its unique approach to achieving an efficient and effective regulatory onboarding programme by adopting a horizontal approach to compliance management and a lifecycle approach to regulatory onboarding.
This report is based upon the findings of a survey undertaken with 17 top tier financial institutions and finds that despite its revenue-generating abilities, client onboarding remains an under-funded, technology-lagging, and paper-based or spreadsheet-driven process. This is contributing to a well-spring of problems in the areas of compliance, regulation and risk management; client experience; technology and data; and operational efficiencies.
In this whitepaper, Fenergo takes an in-depth look at how proactive management of client and counterparty data can enable key decision makers to make trusted decisions based on cleansed and standardised data and enhance compliance and risk management.

The world of financial compliance is bracing itself for the onslaught of new regulations that promise to have a substantial impact on the operational efficiencies and costs associated with serving new and existing clients. If 2012 was the year of delayed regulation, you can bet your last pound, euro or dollar that 2013 will be the year of enforced regulation.This whitepaper features the results of a survey conducted by Fenergo with leading financial institutions on the topic of FATCA compliance.
FATCA is on everyone’s minds right now, with many financial institutions trying to figure out cost-effective and efficient ways to comply with this new IRS-driven regulation. However, FATCA is not the only regulation in town. In fact, it’s only one of many regulatory-driven challenges that are expected to beset financial institutions over the coming months and years. Now with talk of a UK FATCA, it’s only a matter of time before other countries engage and create their own versions and flavours of FATCA.
Client On-boarding is rapidly becoming an area of growing focus for Banks and Financial Institutions. Ever-increasing compliance costs and operational overheads, increased regulatory scrutiny, and delayed revenues have heightened awareness of client on-boarding as an area with significant potential for process improvement.
