RIMES Technologies, the leading provider of managed data and RegTech
services for financial institutions, has picked up two awards in just
under a month for RegFocus℠ BMR, its innovative solution to the
challenges of EU Benchmarks Regulation (BMR) compliance. The latest wins
mean RIMES has now collected five awards for RegFocus BMR since the
service launched at the end of 2017.

For the latest two accolades, RIMES first picked up the ‘Best Sell-Side
Newcomer’ trophy at the WatersTechnology Sell-Side Technology Awards,
which took place on April 12 in London. The award recognizes the
benefits of BMR RegFocus Control in helping sell-side firms comply with
the regulation.

Next, RIMES won the ‘Best Vendor Solution for Benchmarks Regulation’
category at the A-Team RegTech Insights Awards, which was held on May 3
in London. These awards celebrate the RegTech providers that are
building the most creative solutions to the financial sector’s
regulatory requirements.

Alessandro Ferrari, CMO at RIMES, commented: “BMR has proved to be one
of the most complex regulatory challenges financial sector firms have
come up against in recent years. Our aim at RIMES is to bring clarity
and peace of mind to both buy- and sell-side firms around what the
regulation means for their business, what their risk exposure is, and
what they can do about it. Our ever-growing trophy cabinet is welcome
recognition that our clients and the industry as a whole appreciate our
