Financial services organizations are spending as much as 75% t of their change budgets, and increasingly more of their operational budgets, on the increased cost of regulatory compliance.
The effects of these increased requirements have limited most banks to responding only to existing and impending demands. Despite insights gained from coping with and managing regulatory change, most banks still lack a holistic framework or methodology to respond to these regulatory issues. Instead, banks take a reactive approach to regulatory response. As regulators continue to increase their scrutiny of banks, monetary fines - imposed as a result of enforcement action - are growing exponentially.
However, economic change and technology advances are aligning to give banks an opportunity to step back and take a longer-term, more proactive approach that optimizes their efforts in governance, risk and compliance and actually generates business value. Due to the complexity of their application landscapes, banks have difficulty in analyzing and transforming their organizations. Reducing the complexity of the current IT landscape and optimizing traditional data sources is an overarching priority that is within our services and outsourcing models. ifb delivers managed solutions that help our clients anticipate and respond to regulatory obligations while releasing valuable resources and budget so they can focus on their business growth activities.
