BNP Paribas Group is the top bank in the European Union and a major international banking establishment. It has close to 185,000 employees in 65 countries. In Spain we are more than 5,100 employees within 12 business lines.

 

PROUD is a Finance&Strategy and RISK co-sponsored programme, kicked off in October 2023.

 

This programme ensures that the Bank achieves the remediation plan sent to ECB in June 2023 and detailed later in November 2023. This remediation plan aims at tackling weaknesses identified by a 2022 ECB mission focused on the regulatory approach governance and related processes. These outcomes have been formalized by the JST in an operational act received in May 2023.

 

MISSION:

The tasks to be performed have been allocated to 5 streams, as per below:

 

The remediation phase ends with the delivery of an application package (June 2025) that will describe:

 

• BNPP’s policy regarding IRB vs STD usage (how BNPP makes decision regarding the regulatory approach for capital requirements calculations)

• Its application as of Q4 2024

• Capital Chain implemented changes

• Data quality assessments on the data that supports the framework

• The results of the independent review and how findings (if any) have been remediated

 

After the application package, an ECB IMI should start (Q3/Q4 2025).

 

Additionally, the project has the objective to build a BAU process that will continuously perform the monitoring and control of the regulatory approach.

 

Herebelow, the timeline of the project. It has no safety nets and is based on the assumption that the new data to be created can be obtained based on existing data and on an algorithm directly implemented in the central capital chain.

 

During the project phase, a dedicated team will support the Bank’s efforts, starting with 5 additional resources (searched for externally to date). Later in 2024, the project team could reach a size of 10 people.
