Business introduction

We are on a mission to improve the quality of regulatory reporting data in the financial services industry

Our regulatory expertise combined with data science set us apart from anyone else in the market. Our services are the most comprehensive and far superior to any other offerings because we are the only company that tests all reporting data fields rather than just selected samples

We’ve combined regulatory expertise with data science to develop our market-leading assurance services which give our clients full visibility of their reporting quality. 

Our ReportShield™ service offers accuracy testing, advanced regulatory reconciliation, reference data testing and control framework. Our services are used by some of the world’s largest banks, wealth managers, asset managers, hedge funds and brokers and has been recognised by the UK government with a prestigious Queen’s Award for innovation.

In addition to ReportShield™ we offer a health check service which will check the accuracy of all of an institution’s reported data, assess the effectiveness of firms’ governance and control frameworks, and identify any gaps they might have in meeting the regulator’s transaction reporting obligations.

We also offer Regulatory Reporting Training Workshops. Our CPD-accredited courses are endorsed by the CISI and led by Senior Regulatory Reporting Specialists. Training in MiFIR Transaction Reporting, EMIR Trade Reporting and SFTR Reporting.

Whether it’s MiFID II, EMIR, Dodd Frank, SFTR or another G20 regulation, we help our clients reduce costs, improve quality and increase confidence in their regulatory reporting.

Business Overview

Kaizen reporting was created in 2013 by Dario Crispini a former head of the FSA's Transaction Monitoring Unit. Having seen the complexities of regulatory reporting and the difficulties firms were having in meeting their regulatory reporting obligations he formed Kaizen to ensure firms had the services and expertise to enable them to improve the quality and accuracy of their reporting. Core to our services is ReportshieldTM our data quality and accuracy service for trade and transparency reporting. 

Accuracy testing
Utilising our multi-dimensional testing methodology, accuracy testing fully assesses the quality of data reported to the regulator. Checks all reported data fields for accuracy, validity and timeliness. Delivers full visibility of reporting quality. Identifies over-reporting. All reported records are tested for MiFID II reporting. All open positions are tested for EMIR trade reporting. Easily accommodates high volumes and tailored to each firm’s activities.

Advanced regulatory reconciliation
Our end-to-end reconciliation service tests for the completeness of reporting. Independently applies the reporting criteria. Identifies mismatches of data between a firm’s trading systems and what has been reported to the regulator. Pairing and matching. Includes reported and non-reported trades.

Reference data testing
This service checks if the correct counterparty or client has been reported. Executes a range of tests to counterparty and instrument reference data for both accuracy and completeness. Full population of reference data is tested for complete mappings to the appropriate identifiers. Assesses the use and allocation of internal identifiers. Normalises legal name and address.
