December 10, 2018 – Washington, D.C.
Publicis.Sapient and Fintria, LLC on December 10th, 2018 announced a new strategic partnership that leverages technology and domain expertise to help affected financial institutions comply with the FDIC’s new 12 CFR Part 370 regulation.
The regulation affects the nation’s largest 38 banks and is estimated to cost them over $500M to clean up their depositor data and custom build a complex insurance determination system by April 1, 2020. The direct connection between Fintria’s domain expertise and recent product launch of its RCS 370 software combined with Publicis.Sapient’s strong data and project delivery capabilities provides affected banks with a comprehensive third-party solution to reduce compliance risk, cost, and time.
“We leveraged the acquired knowledge from our collective 50 years of FDIC experience, including support of 200 financial institution resolutions and leading the effort to build and optimize the FDIC’s insurance engine, to build RCS 370. This software incorporates thousands of scenarios to accurately calculate depositor insurance” said Loc Nguyen, CEO at Fintria.
“Our clients include the majority of the 38 affected institutions” said James Kessler, a Senior Vice President at Publicis.Sapient. After reviewing the solution provided by Fintria; we determined that this partnership was in the best interest of our clients to help them navigate this complex regulation.”
For a limited time, Fintria and Publicis.Sapient are offering affected institutions a free 1-2 day on-site workshop with our Part 370 SMEs to understand their challenges, answer questions, and provide a high-level roadmap to compliance.
