The Global Financial Innovation Network (GFIN) is an organisation bought to life by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), bringing together regulators from different jurisdictions and companies looking to test innovative concepts to foster the development of Regtech and SupTech solutions. With the network constantly growing, members of GFIN include over 50 regulators from all over the world, developing initatives such as the GFIN Cross-Border Testing.
BR-AG was one of two companies selected to participate in this year’s 2021 Global Financial Innovation Network’s (GFIN) cross-border testing stream, where GFIN recieved applications from 38 firms spread over five continents, choosing two companies to proceed into the development and testing phase. With our custom-designed ATOME Matter platform for data modelling, BR-AG set out to develop a sustainability reporting template that can act as a “greenprint” for the Central Bank of Bahrain, Astana Financial Services Authority, Bank of Lithuania, Bermuda Monetary Authority, Abu Dhabi Global Market and Central Bank of the United Arab Emirates to develop sustainability reporting requirements in their jurisdictions.
