Future-Proofing MAS Reporting with Fintellix-NCS

RegTech pioneer Fintellix has announced its partnership with NCS to deliver MAS Reporting Solution in Singapore. The alliance brings together the Data Processing Platform and Regulatory Reporting Solutions of Fintellix and the vast experience of system integration, infrastructure management and support services by NCS.

The regulatory reporting landscape has seen major overhauling and consequently, banks have been attempting to find the right solutions to adapt to the new changes promptly, efficiently and with lower TCO. The traditional ‘one problem, one solution’ approach has already seen banks stretched for time, effort & cost; the need of the hour is to adopt a ‘one platform, multiple solutions’ approach which ensures that a robust data infrastructure is put in place that can help meet changing requirements in a faster & efficient manner as well as solve multiple reporting requirements, both current & future, local & global. Further, expectations of the regulatory reporting users have increased to cover requirements such as data enrichment, report generation & submission workflow, drill down, etc.

MAS 610 being overhauled gives banks an opportunity to re-evaluate their regulatory technology investments and put in place a scalable platform with a reliable technology partner. Fintellix’s technology and NCS service delivery capabilities will ensure continuous business value for the customers.

“I believe this is a win-win proposition: banks will benefit enormously from the best RegTech platform in the world and serviced by the leading system integrator in Singapore” said Shailendra Mruthyunjayappa, Global Head - Enterprise Business, Fintellix.

“The changes in the regulatory and compliance policy have been accelerating tremendously locally and globally, NCS partnering with Fintellix is the best way forward to offer our customers a flexible and agile reporting technology platform to address the rapid changes with a service assurance to the business” said Raymond Chee, Sales Director, FSI
