​In early March the European Banking Authority (EBA) published a consultation paper outlining draft regulatory standards for the minimum set of data that institutions should hold on their contracts within the European Union.

Rather than requiring a few scant details that can easily be covered off by any in-flight programmes to patch-up data, the draft demands a whole lot more.

Current collateral remediation and other audit point clean-ups that focus on small numbers of document types are unlikely to be enough.

While not enshrined in law just yet, it’s pretty clear this requirement is not going away and what is even clearer is that those companies who embrace the regulatory changes as part of achieving resource efficiency will gain the advantage over those that adopt a follower stance.

Benefits for ‘leader’ organisations range from de-duplication of data capture effort through to more efficient and standardised negotiation in legal, all the way to multi-million dollar collateral optimisation gains and better pre-trade analytics data.​​
