Traditionally, the Risk & Compliance departments were separated from Finance. In an increasingly competitive and data-driven banking environment, fueled by increasing regulatory compliance demands, the unification of these functions is fast becoming a matter of business survival. This unification is desired to ensure the bank's performance is viewed through both risk and finance attributes simultaneously and at the same time through the lens of the respective internal players across the risk-finance-compliance ecosystem. The Banks approaching the convergence of Finance with Risk&Compliance with a data-first perspective stand to gain competitive advantages against a growing number of incoming fintech providers. A data-first approach allows the business to nimbly pivot continuous improvements in the said operations while navigating the need for higher granularity of performance tracking and performance attribution.
