Business Optix fast track to FSA Approval for new Financial Services business

Share Article

Quite rightly, it is extremely challenging getting approval for the introduction of a new regulated financial service in London. A key requirement is a complete detailed business model for how the service will be run, before it has been implemented.

Business Optix is the strategic tool that has been used by a major Global Financial Institution to model complete the business architecture, data flows, and process frameworks from new business take-on to regular reporting and monitoring for a major new financial business venture.

Paul Mitchell who led the project team said "The power of the Business Optix cloud platform allowed us to collect requirements and comments from all of the stakeholders around the world, operating in multiple locations we were able to collaborate and work closely with the Bank's business sponsors to model how the processes can be optimised to be compliant with the FSA rules.

Starting with a high level business model we were able to drill down to map detailed business procedures, value streams and returns, all managed in the cloud. Business Optix has a highly sophisticated document generation tool which created the process flows and documentation directly into the application to the Financial Services Authority.

This only the beginning. Once FSA authorisation is approved, Business Optix will be used to define and control all the business processes that will be used to run the new banking business.

Selecting Business Optix has greatly reduced the risks associated with this application and has reduced the time and cost assocaited with developing a new banking business proposition. Business Optix has worked with many banking and financial services clients including Bank of IIreland, Deutsche Bank, RBS, HSBC and Landis Bank.
