Banking Risk Management System Trends

Quantifi has published a global survey of Chief Risk Officers and Heads of Risk Systems from tier-2 banks, which offers insight into their current risk management environment, the technology they employ, and how they are planning for the future.

Key survey findings:

  • Regulation, compliance and reporting dominates – this is a top challenge across all regions. Counterparty risk and geopolitical risk are significant concerns, especially in North America.
  • Fragmentation of systems and technology complexity is a challenge globally. Availability of accurate data is another, with concerns about consistency between front and middle office models in Europe.
  • Budget changes – banks across all regions are looking to increase technology budgets by 1-15%.
  • Automating manual processes, enhancing analytics, and building scenario analysis are key areas of transformation.
  • Banks express concerns about outdated technology, ineffective data usage, and difficulties in identifying specific technologies to achieve strategic goals.
