Asia Awards 2023: Best regulatory reporting platform—Moody’s Analytics

Product: Reporting Studio


Changing regulatory requirements, large numbers of reports to be submitted, tight submission deadlines, data issues, and increasing costs are some of the challenges facing banks with respect to them meeting their regulatory reporting obligations. Moody’s Analytics offers an end-to-end regulatory reporting platform, Reporting Studio, part of Banking Cloud—an eco-system of cloud-native banking solutions—that combines the regulatory methods, calculation, and reporting, and by so doing streamlines the entire regulatory reporting process.

“As technology is driving innovation in banking, we are combining that technology with our deep regulatory expertise to create effective, scalable and fully integrated solutions that can grow with our clients. Our Banking Cloud and Reporting Studio solutions enhance and transform regulatory compliance, enable a consistent view of risk and go beyond the regulatory to provide banks with confidence to act on their plans.”
Karina Beeckmans, director of marketing, Moody’s Analytics
