Prudential Returns Solutions in the UAE
Stay on top of the numbers you need to know with our UAE Prudential Returns support services.
Many firms struggle with the completion of their prudential returns because they often need input from a number of stakeholders within the firm. Historically, returns have been predominantly focused on financial information but increasingly, regulators require information to be provided on the firm’s products, client types, jurisdictions etc. Problems may also arise where legacy systems are not nimble enough to provide the information required to be included in the returns.
Prudential returns are usually submitted more frequently than other regulatory returns and consequently provide the regulator with more up-to-date information. Where discrepancies or inconsistencies arise, the regulator may be concerned that the firm does not understand the requirements of the rules and this could lead to a review of the firm’s systems and controls, which may not be limited to the financial records.
