The Luxembourg Bankers’ Association (ABBL), its Digital Banking and FinTech Innovation Cluster, and interested ABBL members in cooperation with the advisory firm Grant Thornton Luxembourg have completed a feasibility study to understand challenges and opportunities for the eventual establishment of a financial reporting hub in Luxembourg serving the regulatory needs of the banking sector.
At the recent event entitled “Luxembourg Financial Reporting Hub: Leveraging on the Growing Burden of Compliance” held at the premises of the Banque et Caisse d’Epargne de l’Etat, Luxembourg, project partners shared with the banking community of Luxembourg the major outcomes of the study indicating an emerging demand of the national financial marketplace in a regulatory reporting utility. The ambition of this project is to provide the banking sector with holistic services for prudential and regulatory reporting and to foster transparency of reporting processes, higher data quality, less redundant data deliveries, higher flexibility in case of new requirements, and lower costs.
