Basel II is the second of the Basel Accords, which are recommendations on banking laws and regulations issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision. The purpose of Basel II is to create an international standard that banking regulators can use when creating regulations about how much capital banks need to put aside to guard against the types of financial and operational risks banks face.
We believe that such an international standard can help protect your financial system from the types of problems that might arise should a major bank or a series of banks collapse. In practice, we attempt to accomplish this by setting up rigorous risk and capital management requirements designed to ensure that a bank holds capital reserves appropriate to the risk the bank exposes itself to through its lending and investment practices. The Basel II implementation:
- Ensures that capital allocation is more risk sensitive;
- Separates operational risk from credit risk, and quantifying both;
- Attempts to align economic and regulatory capital more closely to reduce the scope forregulatory arbitrage.

Regulatory and Statuary Reporting
EAPT is the premier provider of regulatory reporting software solutions to the financial industry. Our Regulatory Reporting Suite (RRS) is a complete system addressing the large position regulatory disclosure needs of global institutional investors. Many institutional investors still rely on largely manual methods of compiling, reviewing and filing position disclosure reports. For many firms, frequent organizational re-alignments and the increasing globalization of investment strategies has made traditional reporting operations unwieldy and error prone. In addition, global marketplaces are frequently redefining position disclosure requirements using country specific holdings thresholds and varying reporting frequencies thus increasing the burdens on compliance departments. Our RRS streamlines the regulatory position disclosure process while vastly improving the accuracy and timeliness of such reporting.
RRS delivers an integrated facility that manages the compliance process surrounding the capture, aggregation, testing and review of position information and generates complete regulatory documents ready for submission. RRS is a highly extensible product engineered to address new jurisdictions, solve evolving reporting requirements and support ad hoc data mining. EAPT plans to aggressively incorporate additional jurisdictions into RRS to maintain its posture as the pre-eminent producer of global regulatory reporting solutions.
