Wolters Kluwer Invited to Bank of England Roundtable on the Resolvability Assessment Framework Package

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Wolters Kluwer’s Finance, Risk & Reporting (FRR) business has been
invited to take part in an industry roundtable, organized by the Bank of
England, which will discuss proposals designed to ensure U.K. banks are
accountable for their own resolvability – the Resolvability Assessment
Framework (RAF).

The roundtable takes place today and includes Partner level participants
from law firms, consultancies and accounting firms. Wolters Kluwer is
the sole technology provider taking part in the event and will be
providing expertise relating to regulatory reporting implications.

Consisting of two consultation papers, the Bank of England and
Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) published the RAF package in
December 2018. An important step in the Bank’s commitment to Parliament
that major U.K. banks will be fully resolvable by 2022, the package is
designed to make resolution more transparent, better understood and more
successful by creating a common assessment framework across all firms.

Representing Wolters Kluwer at the roundtable will be Nicos Kynicos,
Product Manager for Regulatory Reporting, U.K., Ireland and Nordics at
Wolters Kluwer FRR.

The decision to take part in the event is part of Wolters Kluwer’s
ongoing commitment to share its regulatory insights with regulators and
the industry as a whole. “This advisory roundtable provides a useful
opportunity to hear directly from influential thought leaders that are
contributing to this important subject for the U.K.’s banking sector,”
commented Nicos. “The approach and objectives of the RAF are certainly
welcome. It makes absolute sense to internalize the externalities
associated with failure of major financial institutions. I look forward
to discussing the wider implications of the package and hearing what the
Bank and other experts believe to be the key areas for focus in the
