Improving organization's financial strength through transparency in bank operations

Updated On : February 2017

Controllers & Regulators, shareholders, and internal business stakeholders want better transparency into bank operations in order to improve organizational financial strength. Also, controllers & managers wants that financial institutions to establish suitable levels of:

  • Risk data aggregation
  • Robust Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) processes
  • Strong liquidity monitoring measures
  • Thorough and ongoing recovery and resolution planning process

Universally, several banks/financial institutions struggle to manage data with the rigor required to satisfy these demands, and plenty of them fail to support stronger collaboration between departments like Finance & Risk. Initially, this might have been invulnerable. Though data is the mainstay of both risk and finance, the two sections have factually consumed and outputted it very inversely.

According to a fresh research done by the Global Association of Risk Professionals and SAS, less than half of the managers surveyed said their financial institutions know-how on data management was satisfactory or week. For organizations that has dearth of this know-how, they are being deprived of understandings that we feel could help them enhance business decisions and, in many cases, can leave them open to additional regulatory examination. The risk and finance functions will play a very important role in determining and solving these deficiencies.

  • We are extremely thankful to the whole team who have devotedly committed and created this excellent database. Much of our time was wasted in data retrieval from i link where we were facing lots of issues.

    You have given us an awesome product which is superior to our Finacle itself in its display capabilities. The great idea of taking pdf/word/excel option is simply superb. Merging the party code and Finacle CIF and account numbers are another feather in the cap.
