The data required for disclosures, particularly attribution analysis, has proven to be highly voluminous, making the preparations of disclosures a significant challenge. A further constraint that banks face is a shorter financial statement close process, which has resulted in a number of banks simplifying their financial statement disclosures for 2018. Banks will need to ensure that they maintain a flexible delivery model for disclosures going forward as the EBA, PRA and initiatives such as the Enhanced Disclosure Task Force (EDTF) finalise their expectations as stakeholders.
