DaDFiR3 pursues the vision of a system for automated regulatory financial reporting, using financial contract-level data in combination with market data to produce the necessary analyses as required for internal and external supervision.
Content and objective
We will deploy an ICT infrastructure that provides a suitable ecosystem for forward-looking financial simulation and analysis. We will also further develop the financial mathematical toolset for risk analysis. Key elements of our technology are: (i) the ACTUS standard for digital representation of financial contracts; (ii) blockchain technology and smart contracts for decentralized finance; (iii) Big Data technology; (iv) state-of-the-art financial analytics. This infrastructure enables largely automated, situational risk assessment of individual financial institutions (microprudential supervisory activity) and, in the final development, of the entire financial system (macroprudential supervisory activity).
Scientific and societal context
Effective and efficient financial regulation serves to stabilize the financial system and thus the entire economy and society. The financial crisis of 2007-2009 demonstrated this impressively. Regulatory financial reporting is a key element.
With the new infrastructure, regulatory financial reports can be flexibly adapted to the respective needs and quickly produced. The currently considerable costs for the banks will be greatly reduced through automation. At the same time, the new DeFi area will also be included. The ultimate goal is an automated system similar to the worldwide daily weather forecast.
