Asset Liquidity Risk
Manage asset liquidity risk and compliance more effectively.
The recent financial crisis revealed significant weaknesses in the way banks assess and predict risk. Where banks had assumed easy access to asset liquidity prior to 2008, the financial crisis left even the most conservative banks overexposed to risk and unable to predict their liquidity. Consequently, in the wake of the crisis, there is a great deal of pressure on treasurers, compliance officers and CFOs to ensure more transparency in asset and liability management and in how their institutions manage and define their appetite for risk. Regulators, boards of directors and even customers want a clearer understanding of how banks are judging their asset liquidity. To satisfy these concerns and remain competitive, banks need an asset liquidity risk management solution that can deliver the rigorous stress testing and transparency that the market demands. For banks seeking reliable and innovative banking risk management solution, SunGard has the answer.
