A large retail bank required assistance with identifying gaps and preparing for the Basel IV Credit Risk requirements. The scope included the entire regulatory data lineage from sourcing to calculation to reporting, where Monocle was asked to interpret regulations, assess data gaps and quality, and make recommendations in light of regulatory impacts.


Monocle first summarised all changes between the previous and new Basel framework impacting the bank, and then developed a standardised data model capturing all attributes needed for Basel IV credit risk calculations. We then proceeded to update the current calculation engine to make it fully Basel IV capable. Lastly, Monocle designed the processes to integrate source data via the optimized data model into a calculator and automated current and new reporting requirements.
