Banking Industry Solutions

The BASEL Committee is the primary global standard-setter for the prudential regulation of banks and provides a forum for cooperation on banking supervisory matters. Its mandate is to strengthen the regulation, supervision and practices of banks worldwide with the purpose of enhancing financial stability.

“Basel III” is a comprehensive set of reform measures aiming to:

  • Improve the banking sector’s ability to absorb shocks arising from financial and economic stress
  • Improve risk management and governance
  • Strengthen banks’ transparency and disclosures.

Great efforts are made to strengthen the financial sector and make banks and other financial institutions more resilient in the event of unexpected stress. These reforms mainly concentrate on regulatory capital, liquidity and leverage. We do hope that the future crisis will not lead to Governments spending billions of dollars of taxpayer’s money saving the banking system. Large and internationally active banks that comply with these mandatory BASEL norms need to constantly improve their internal risk management systems. They do this by continuous monitoring and effectively exploiting the latest in information technology on an ongoing basis to excel in their performance. Several large financial institutions, including leading North American banks, choose Kumaran Systems as their strategic technology partner to design, develop, and support their critical applications.


Business Challenges

banking industry solutions

Many banks are planning to implement BASEL III, either voluntarily or due to mandatory regulations. You may be facing these challenges in case your institution still relies on traditional methods of running business:

  • Real-time business environments are continuously evolving in a fast-growing global marketplace.
  • Regulatory requirements are getting more stringent by the day.
  • Volatility of earnings needs to be limited and shareholder value enhanced.
  • Even though loss events are monitored, loss data is not always updated in a loss database.
  • Business data is not consistently captured or entered into the database; neither is the data accessible across the organization.
  • Most systems fail to identify deterioration in credit quality on time.
  • Multiple asset classes and diversified industries prompt for development of independent risk rating methodologies.
  • Maintenance of existing standalone legacy systems is expensive and consolidation of available data into useful information is time-consuming.
  • Need to introduce Liquidity Risk Measurement Practices
