The Challenge

German savings banks are subject to the strict rules of European banking supervision and its disclosure requirements. As an asset manager, you support invested savings banks by providing a special look-through. In the future, you will be increasingly required to provide this data in the KVG interface format. In doing so, you will face numerous challenges to successfully manage the onboarding process and meet the specific requirements:

  • Delivering fund data at the individual portfolio level in a predefined format
  • Providing pre-calculated CRR-specific metrics
  • Mapping of internal data to specific standards of the savings bank sector
  • Compliance with restrictive data quality and consistency checks
  • Matching internal investment data with that of the primary market data source of the accepting system

Our KVG interface service can do all of this for you.
