International Expansion

Here’s something that we hear quite often: that banks are not prepared to serve clients in foreign jurisdictions due to the regulatory uncertainties involved. However, serving clients in a cross-border context is extremely easy with digital compliance rules, and expansion into new jurisdictions takes place at the push of a button. Find out how working with digital compliance rules enables banking across borders.

Regulatory complexity is forcing banks to withdraw to their home markets. It is time for technology-based solutions to make cross-border banking easier again.

Empowering banking across borders

Machine-readable regulatory rules have many advantages, but the most important is certainly that they enable the effortless international expansion of financial services. Subscribing to cross-border rules or market-specific rules that govern new business areas is particularly easy with digital rules and provides an immediate way to extend the reach of banks, wealth managers and asset managers.

Digital compliance rules are divisible, flexible and scalable so that banks and other financial institutions can initially only buy the exact regulations they need first, for customers already on board or to implement an initial business strategy. By creating a comfort zone with the technology early on, additional regulatory coverage and reliable answers are available that can be added at any time and enable banking across borders.

Subscribing to cross-border rules or market-specific rules that govern new business areas is particularly easy with the right RegTech tools.

Reducing compliance risks with RegTech solution

Further advantages of the digital compliance rules come almost casually. First, the nature of digital compliance rules is that they provide clear yes-or-no answers to even the most complex questions, further reducing the compliance risk of international expansion strategies. This also reduces the need for costly compliance training. The clarity provided by a digital compliance solution significantly reduces the need for client advisors to take the lead in complex constellations.

Digital compliance rules are divisible, flexible and scalable, so banks can initially only buy the exact rules they need and use new rules at the push of a button.
