Implemented a common finance model with integrated data across business segments

Standard Chartered Bank sought to solve the challenges of multiple silos of inconsistent and incomplete data for financial reporting. The data did not reconcile with the bank's general ledger and had several data quality issues due to lack of standardisation. The bank implemented the “Rubicon Accounting Hub - Finance Common Model”, integrating the bank wide data across business segments, reconciled with the general ledger. This is used for enterprise reporting including internal and external regulatory reporting for the group and individual country. It also facilitates management information system (MIS) reports and analytics.

Extensive project, covering all geographies for an integrated regulatory reporting capability

The scope of the project covers the data in the entire bank, across 60 countries and different business verticals including financial markets, retail banking, wealth management and transaction banking. Through this project, the bank can support more than ten unique downstream systems facilitating local and group regulatory reporting on financial stability board and IFRS9. The bank also launched the “Rubicon Application programming interface (API) Enrichment Layer” project to consolidate the entire bank's financial market data and support the finance market product control team.

Resulted in significant operational efficiencies

Through the bank wide data integration, the project has enabled improved efficiency and time savings while the processing time was reduced from two days to one hour. The system was able to load one billion transactions per day across 50 countries. It reduced the manual efforts in financial reconciliation by 75% and improved the user experience. Besides this, the development efforts were reduced and the time to market improved by 25%.

Established a strong data foundation

Through this project, the bank was able to establish a strong foundation of data on which the reporting and business analytics was built. The bank plans to expanded this in the future to support more downstream systems.
