Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation partners with Sofgen
International banking information technology consultancy Sofgen has won a mandate from the New York branch of Japan-based Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (SMBC). Under the partnership, SMBC will implement Sofgen’s regulatory reporting solution called Reg-Reporter.
“Many banks are still preparing and filing their regulatory reports manually,” said Vincent Raniere, global head of product sales at Sofgen. “They have not employed the use of an end-to-end solution to reduce their report preparation time, which would afford them quality time for analysing.”
According to Raniere, Sofgen’s solution automates the end-to-end generation of the reports required by regulatory agencies resulting in significant reductions of time, effort and expense.
