Legal Data for BankingBusiness Optimisation and Regulatory Compliance
A practical, informative guide to banks’ major weakness Legal Data for Banking defines the legal data domain in the context of financial institutions, and describes how banks can leverage these assets to optimise business lines and effectively manage risk. Legal data is at the heart of post-2009 regulatory reform, and practitioners need to deepen their grasp of legal data management in order to remain compliant with new rules focusing on transparency in trade and risk reporting. This book provides essential information for IT, project management and data governance leaders, with detailed discussion of current and best practices. Many banks are experiencing recurrent pain points related to legal data management issues, so clear explanations of the required processes, systems and strategic governance provide immediately-relevant relief. The recent financial crisis following the collapse of major banks had roots in poor risk data management, and the regulators’ unawareness of accumulated systemic risk stemming from contractual obligations between firms. To avoid repeating history, today’s banks must be proactive in legal data management; this book provides the critical knowledge practitioners need to put the necessary systems and practices in place. Learn how current legal data management practices are hurting banks Understand the systems, structures and strategies required to manage risk and optimise business lines Delve into the regulations surrounding risk aggregation, netting, collateral enforceability and more Gain practical insight on legal data technology, systems and migration The legal contracts between firms contain significant obligations that underpin the financial markets; failing to recognise these terms as valuable data assets means increased risk exposure and untapped business lines. Legal Data for Banking provides critical information for the banking industry, with actionable guidance for implementation.

A comprehensive guide to the domain of legal data in financial services Legal Data for Banking defines the legal data domain in the context of financial institutions and describes how financial institutions can leverage legal data to achieve business optimisation, regulatory reporting and compliance, as well as operational management. Legal data is at the heart of allowing financial firms to embrace the digital agenda, vital for both Fintech and Legaltech solutions in the banking industry. With the plethora of regulation that emerged after the collapse of Lehman Brothers, this is no longer a case of optimisation, rather a regulatory requirement. Accordingly, both lawyers and technologists need to deepen their grasp of legal data management and change management. This book offers banking and legal professionals a much-needed explanation of how firms can deliver business value by bringing their legal teams into the fore of the business. The author, Akber Datoo, is a noted expert in the field and explores a new model centred on legal digitisation to add business context to legal activity. Particularly within financial services, the new legal digital agenda is a chance to bring legal counsel further into business and use digitisation and data connectivity to achieve hyper-awareness both pre- and post-trade. With real-time recognition of key events and how they may affect a position, an empowered legal team can drive measurable new value.
PRAISE FOR LEGAL DATA FOR BANKING "This is an indispensable handbook for any capital markets lawyer – a comprehensive, accessible and practical guide to the intersection of data and the law in the context of the banking industry." —Stephen Denyer, Director of Strategic Relationships, The Law Society of England & Wales; former Partner, Allen & Overy LLP "A comprehensive guide to the rise of the legal data domain and its management." —Amir Mehdi, Global Head of Legal and Resolution Technology, Barclays "For many lawyers, data is still unchartered territory but increasingly vital in financial services. This book provides a necessary roadmap to help in-house legal teams engage with their businesses, so they can thrive in the new digital agenda." —Jason Pugh, Banking Lawyer; Managing Director, Deutsche Bank "Investment banking professionals and their advisors will be glad for this book. It is timely, and it has attracted a very right author to the task of writing it. Legal data management has suddenly captured our attention, not least because of regulatory interest in the subject but also because of the commercial benefit of effective risk management and strategic thinking in this area – and because of the serious consequence of getting any of this wrong! Akber Datoo has grown his legal technology business in stunning fashion, drawing on his legal training and considerable knowledge and experience of the financial products and contractual obligations and data they embody. He now generously shares with his reader in this reference work guidance on a range of relevant topics: capital, liquidity and collateral; recovery and resolution; client money and assets; mandatory margin requirements for uncleared derivatives; regulatory reporting requirements; and more. The book gives the necessary technical detail, yet remains readable and understandable. It is an excellent work, and the author is to be congratulated." —Jeffrey Golden, Joint Head of Chambers, 3 Hare Court; Chairman, The P.R.I.M.E. Finance Foundation; Governor and Honorary Fellow at the London School of Economics and Political Science; retired Founding Partner, Allen & Overy LLP's US law practice "A much-needed text underpinning Fintech and Legaltech." —Susanne Chishti, CEO, FINTECH Circle and FINTECH Circle Institute "A must-read for any technologists working within Legaltech and financial services. Akber bridges the gap between the technology and the law in a manner that is easy to read and practical to apply." —Anna Iversen, Senior Capital Markets Lawyer; Board Member, Nordic Capital Markets Forum
