Our services

Highly automated Regulatory Reporting

AuRep is the partner of Austrian banks and financial service providers for reporting to the supervisory authorities. We operate a common reporting platform (CRP) for most Austrian banks.

Secure and redundant data

Data preparation and processing for reporting to the Central Bank of the Republic of Austria (Österreichische Nationalbank “OeNB”) by client-isolated software. Fail-safe operation is warranted by two highly secured redundant data locations. Compliance with the highest security standards is a matter of course for us.

Cost advantage due to shared service model

Regulatory reporting is undergoing a main shift: the new regulatory requirements for banks entail a high quantity and granularity of the data. The services provided by AuRep supports banks to reduce costs, realize synergies and optimally cope with all new regulatory reporting requirements. While covering more than 90% of the banking market in Austria, AuRep is setting the best practice standards in the field of regulatory reporting within financial services.

Best practice approach in regulatory reporting

By means of a unique governance model, the collaborative approach in development and the high market coverage, AuRep provides reliable solutions for our bank partners, that go beyond the highest degree of standardisation available on the market.
