Financial Authority Partner Profile:
Comisión Nacional Bancaria y de Valores
The Comisión Nacional Bancaria y de Valores (CNBV) is an independent agency of the Secretariat of Finance and Public Credit (Mexico) (SHCP) body with technical autonomy and executive powers over the Mexican financial system. Its main role is to supervise and regulate the entities that make up the Mexican financial system, in order to ensure its stability and proper operation, and to maintain and promote the healthy and balanced development of the financial system as a whole, in protecting the interests of the public.
The Comisión Nacional Bancaria y de Valores (CNBV) has partnered with R2A to develop data infrastructure for Anti-Money Laundering (AML) supervision to:
- Allow financial institutions to submit information for AML compliance digitally and automatically to the CNBV.
- Increase the volume, granularity, and frequency – and improve the quality – of AML-related data submitted to the CNBV.
- Enable CNBV staff to import historical records into the central data storage platform.
- Enable CNBV staff to improve AML-related data validation and analysis, and generate customized reports for supervisory and policy development purposes.
By improving data quality and access, and developing new tools for data visualization and analysis, R2A will support the CNBV’s efforts to effectively implement an AML risk-based supervisory approach that reduces compliance costs and promotes financial inclusion while ensuring financial integrity. This is because reducing inefficiencies in current processes would give CNBV staff greater bandwidth to improve supervisory quality, and enable the CNBV to provide sharper guidance to supervised institutions in improving their AML compliance systems.
Also, the CNBV is currently supporting the development of a new regulatory framework for the FinTech sector and the developed prototype solution is expected to strengthen its supervisory capacity.
The project will deliver a prototype by June 2018. The competition to select the firm that will prototype this regtech solution is currently open. The deadline for submission is October 29th, 2017. More information here.
