Pancreta Bank to optimize regulatory compliance with Finastra


Finastra today announced that Pancreta Cooperative Bank, a leading cooperative organization in Greece with more than 85,000 active members, has selected its Fusion Risk solution to automate regulatory reporting and minimize the cost of compliance. The solution is also the first step towards modernizing the bank and streamlining its internal and external processes.

“Pancreta is focused on meeting the banking needs of our customers, supporting their business and banking needs in the most efficient and personalized way. Optimizing regulatory compliance is essential as we continue to grow the bank and evolve our product offerings,” said Chrisanthi Papadopoulou, Executive General Manager at Pancreta Bank. “It is critical for a Greek bank like Pancreta to have a strong and reliable predictive solution, capable of anticipating business decisions. To achieve this, we required data and scenario-consistent reporting, and a tool for the attribution of regulatory capital burden. Finastra’s Fusion Risk solution is the obvious choice for supporting our compliance needs for Basel III, IRRBB and IFRS9’s specific requirements.”

The implementation of Fusion Risk will allow Pancreta to automate regulatory reporting and compliance processes, as well as ALM and balance sheet management. It will also reduce the effort needed to achieve compliance and give a more accurate and faster view of the balance sheet. Bank users will benefit from increased automation, a reduction in manual work and the ability to focus on more strategic tasks, such as effective management of non-performing exposures (NPEs) and improving the loan portfolio.

“Pancreta was seeking the best solution to optimize its regulatory compliance functions and also a trustworthy partner to provide seamless integration and support,” said Arnaud Picut, Head of Risk Practice at Finastra. “Fusion Risk’s regulatory automation capabilities will help support Pancreta’s targets for future growth as it seeks to increase customer deposits, restructure its branch network and expand to new markets.”

The breadth of functionality offered by Fusion Risk, its advanced user interface and the usability of the regulatory reporting capabilities were all key differentiators in the selection process. Deployment at Pancreta will be carried out in partnership with trusted implementation partner Neoflex.

Anton Sparinapti, Partner, Head of Business Development at Neoflex said, “Our team of experts’ experience in implementing complex information systems and our strong relationship with Finastra meant that we were able to develop a strong, effective partnership around Fusion Risk. This results in successful projects with speedy delivery at a reasonable cost, around the world.”
