MAS DAG Completion

U-Reg is delighted to announce the successful completion of an Industry Pilot carried out as part of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) Digital Acceleration Grant (DAG) program. This collaborative effort, focused on “Onboarding Automation,” brought together five regulated financial institutions to enhance the U-Reg platform. The outcome of this project is further automation of onboarding and KYC (Know Your Customer) processes, which included automated document gathering, data retrieval, risk evaluation, automated screening, replacement for email-based collaboration, automated document generation, and management of document expirations as well as recertification cycles.

Presentation of the program

The DAG Industry Pilot Track aimed to co-fund joint projects by multiple smaller FIs to customize an existing solution with a solution provider, and then implement the solution within their respective institutions.

BIM Asset Management was awarded the Digital Acceleration Grant (DAG) on 20 January 2023, which provides funding support for the collaboration between BIM Asset Management,  Novum Financial Technologies, Paladigm Capital, Pierfront Capital Fund Management, Ternary Fund Management and U-Reg to develop digital solutions to strengthen operational resilience, process efficiency, risk management and customer service. The DAG is part of the Financial Sector Technology and Innovation scheme under the Financial Sector Development Fund administered by the Monetary Authority of Singapore.

The DAG Industry Pilot Track empowered U-Reg to significantly enhance automation and deliver improved solutions to our clients, building upon the automation and digitization already achieved by the prior iteration of the U-Reg platform.

Problem Statement and Enhancements

Regulatory processes, of which onboarding, remain manual. Being compliant is stressful, tedious and unfriendly. Current manual processes create unnecessary complexity, which translates into significant inefficiencies and risks across organizations. Human errors are in addition numerous because of manual processes.

Through this program, U-Reg in collaboration with the awarded Financial Institutions automated further the U-Reg platform by adding new features to the following processes: workflows, document collection, data collection, data update, AML screening, document generation and recertification cycles.
