Financial regulations embody many financial terms in a semi-structured format. Narrative in their format, regulations mainly express the obligations, but also permissions and prohibitions that a financial institution needs to consider in complex extended trading situations. For compliance applications, FIBO provides a start but extensions were needed to address the semantic richness of compliance.

The talk will:

  • Explain the gap analysis of FIBO for regulatory compliance
  • Explain RECO - a deontic ontology that extends FIBO
  • using EUR-Lex MIP and BASEL regulations, demonstrate how TopBraid supports both FIBO and RECO
  • using Investopedia content demonstrate machine learning for auto-tagging
