Liquidity Risk Solution
To stay compliant banks require proven liquidity risk solution.
The recent financial crisis has shaken the easy access to liquidity that financial institutions enjoyed through the previous decade. Even the most conservative and highly regarded banks have found themselves overexposed to risk and without an effective way to measure liquidity vulnerabilities. In response to this predicament and to the intense scrutiny of regulators, many banks are seeking a liquidity risk solution that can both transparently demonstrate a solid approach to managing liquidity risk while also minimizing the costs of implementing those strategies. For many leading banks worldwide, the liquidity risk solution choice comes from Sungard’s Ambit.
