Over the past years there has been an increased interest in deploying risk management mechanisms to better safeguard the financial institutions’ activities and operations. The regulatory environment has further encouraged this and Risk managers are currently facing the need to measure various risk metrics and produce numerous reports for keeping up with their compliance obligations, which lead to significant time and effort consumption.
Within this context, it is time for financial institutions to re-think the way they operate and use modern technology that will allow them to better calculate risk and generate regulatory and management reports as well as effectively respond to potential changes - especially in the area of Credit Risk. In Deloitte’s Global Risk Management Survey it is noted that 94% of financial institutions, stated that the most important issues for the CRO, in order to meet the regulatory requirements and expectations, are the development of risk information reporting mechanisms as well as risk management framework, methodologies and standards, while the two major challenges for their risk management programs involve IT systems and data. New automation processes for effective risk management and reporting are vital to increase performance efficiency, minimise risk and improve decision-making with higher transparency and flexibility in this demanding and critical area.
