Wolters Kluwer’s Finance, Risk & Reporting business is holding its annual Client Conference in Amsterdam this week. The event, which takes place on October 11 and 12, brings together the firm’s valued clients globally to discuss finance, risk and regulatory reporting trends and challenges. The conference also allows clients to influence and drive Wolters Kluwer’s product strategy for its integrated regulatory compliance and reporting solution suite.
Keynote speakers include Christopher Kutarna, Fellow of the Oxford Martin School at the University of Oxford, who will explore the unconscious biases that obscure our understanding of present political, economic, technological and social trends. Former Formula One mechanic and Sky Sports commentator Marc Priestley, meanwhile, will examine how communication and teamwork can be tapped to secure marginal gains.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn about the findings of a recent Wolters Kluwer survey, conducted in association with The FT’s The Banker magazine. Rajat Somany, Vice President of Strategy, Product & Platform Management for Wolters Kluwer’s Finance, Risk & Reporting business, will explore key findings along with Joy Macknight, The Banker’s Deputy Editor.
There will also be client case studies and interactive sessions around the roadmap and product development across Finance, Risk & Reporting, as well as one-on-one meetings with product team and subject matter experts from Wolters Kluwer.
Major topics to be discussed on roundtables and in expert presentations include technological innovations which are enabling institutions to merge their Finance, Risk and Regulatory Reporting functions into a set of processes to help meet the twin demands of regulatory compliance and a competitive commercial landscape. Key regulatory drivers such as the Capital Requirements Directive (CRD) V and Risk and Finance trends (including International Financial Reporting Standard 9, Interest Rate Risk in the Banking Book and the Fundamental Review of the Trading Book) will also be debated.
Wolters Kluwer experts will also explore the product and technology strategy for regulatory reporting and AnaCredit – the European Central Bank project to set up a dataset containing detailed information on individual bank loans in the euro area, harmonized across all Member States.
“Our clients are under pressure to maximize the value of their data in an ever changing regulatory environment,” notes Inga Rottmann, Vice President of Global Marketing for Wolters Kluwer’s Finance, Risk & Reporting business. “This conference provides a perfect opportunity for our clients to examine their strategies, particular in light of further integration of the finance, risk and regulatory reporting business processes. As always we look forward to exploring these and other themes with our clients during the conference.”
