BCBS 239 compliance with Accurity

The BCBS 239 standard lays out principles designed to strengthen data governance processes, risk data aggregation, and risk reporting across the banking industry. Although originally aimed at Global (G-SIBs2) institutions, many national supervisors are now requiring the same standards from Domestic (D-SIBs3) institutions.

BCBS 239 implementation – Turning risk into reward

Banks should be compliant with all principles set out in the standard, including infrastructure and capacities that they should have in place. Implementing BCBS 239 principles also brings many rewards, by greatly improving risk management and decision-making processes across the institution.
