Publicis.Sapient and European DataWarehouse to build securitisation repository for new STS regulation

RELATED TOPICS​

Publicis.Sapient has been selected by the European DataWarehouse (ED) to build the first securitisation repository under the new EU regulation for Simple, Transparent and Standardised (STS) securitisations, expected to take effect in 2019.

ED is the designated European repository for loan-level data stemming from Asset Backed Securities (ABS). It was established under the European Central Bank’s loan-level initiative in 2012. Publicis.Sapient has been the implementation partner of ED since the very beginning. Today, more than 500 issuers, investors, central banks and other data users utilise ED’s data infrastructure.
 
The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) is changing the regulatory framework for the securitisation market in the EU with the introduction of the STS regulation. Under STS, securitisations will be stimulated and mandatory transparency requirements introduced. Loan-level data, investor reports and other related documents must be submitted on a regular basis to an authorised repository. The repositories will then process, validate and store the securitisation related data and assess the data quality of submissions. Issuers, investors and regulators will be enabled to fulfil the STS due diligence requirements and supervise the EU securitisation market.
 
ED aims to become the first such securitisation repository that will serve regulators, originators, sponsors, investors and rating agencies under the new securitisation regulation. Publicis.Sapient will act as the transformation partner to build out the cloud-hosted platform that will act as a central data repository.
 
“We’re delighted that ED has selected Publicis.Sapient as its strategic transformation partner and that we can continue to help further its mission of delivering transparency in financial markets. By providing a unique, cloud-based platform, ED is creating a modern repository for banks, servicers and other market participants to support compliance with the new securitisation regulation,” says Bernd Harnisch (pictured), Vice President of Consulting at Publicis.Sapient.
 
“The usage of advanced front-end technologies to provide outstanding user experience for the clients of European DataWarehouse and a thorough understanding of the STS regulation are the foundation for designing this data repository. With agile project methodologies, we can rapidly react to regulatory changes and deliver tangible results on a continuous basis,” adds Jens Schuback, Senior Manager and Project Lead at Publicis.Sapient.
 
“At the European DataWarehouse, we have been serving issuers and investors of Asset Backed Securities in the European Union for more than five years,” says Christian Thun, CEO, European DataWarehouse. “The transparency requirements under the new STS regulation will be a challenge for our clients as well as for us. Nonetheless, the European DataWarehouse is determined to become the first securitisation repository under the new STS framework in order to cater for the needs of the market.”
