Risk Management

Investment Risk Management

Risk management at banks is one of the most important disciplines. Banks face extensive regulations both at balance sheet level (e.g., Basel III and IV) and at client portfolio level (e.g., suitability frameworks such as MiFID). Additionally, operational risks also undergo stricter scrutiny from regulators.

With the right expertise, tools and resources, finalix can help effectively manage risks in different domains and at various levels.

Regulations at bank level

Due to extensive regulations (e.g., Basel III and IV), banks have been subjected to many changing requirements. Some of these have an influence on the refinancing costs of financial institutions and must therefore be taken into account in strategic product design and pricing strategy.

  • Operational risk (i.e., resilience under financial stress and guarantee proper operations)
  • Market risk including interest rate and currency risk
  • Credit risk
  • Liquidity risk

Regulations at client/product level and general investment management

Further significant changes in regulatory procedures are on the horizon in the coming years in view of the changing complexity of new investment products. We can help to better understand and adapt risk indicators and calculation models.
