History of Fermat International

Fermat International Is Part of Moody’s Analytics Enterprise Risk Solutions
In 2008, Moody’s Analytics acquired Fermat International, a leading provider of integrated risk and performance management software. Fermat, and its extensive enterprise risk solutions, was a strong complement to the Moody's Analytics core offering. The acquisition further positioned Moody’s Analytics as a global leader in risk and performance management software for commercial banks and other financial institutions.

By leveraging a proprietary and robust data management platform, Fermat helped banks meet regulatory capital requirements and provided risk management and performance monitoring capabilities. With installations at more than 100 banks around the world, Fermat significantly extended the functional and geographic scope of the Moody's Analytics suite of banking software. Founded in 1996, Brussels-based Fermat International served customers in 30 countries, with significant operational and development hubs in France and Singapore.

Integrated Risk and Performance Management Software
The Fermat product suite – part of Moody’s Analytics Enterprise Risk Solutions – was designed by financial engineers and software developers, combining extensive academic and professional knowledge in finance, mathematics, and information technology.

With a modular approach to enterprise risk solutions, Moody’s Analytics customers can progressively build an integrated and comprehensive enterprise-wide risk and performance management system:

Each functional module taps into the relevant area from the financial DataMart.
This modular approach has the advantage of limiting the integration process to current functional needs.
The software extension builds on previously implemented interfaces.

The products readily complement existing information systems and consolidate business lines, such as capital markets, corporate banking, commercial and residential mortgages, project financing, retail, and private banking. The software suite is based on an enterprise-wide "Financial Data Warehouse."

Leading Edge Technology 
Moody’s Analytics software packages have been designed to meet a specific perimeter of a financial institution's requirements and all run within a common architecture. Financial institutions can benefit from a global, truly coherent, and comprehensive solution. The software suite is built on an three-tier architecture and is a perfect fit for a single installation at a local bank. This installation enables you to share a work environment benefiting from the same operational data and parameterization sets. 

By combining Fermat’s highly regarded regulatory and risk management products with Moody’s Analytics existing offering, we offer comprehensive end-to-end risk management solutions for a wide range of financial institutions, from local organizations to large head offices of multinational institutions.
