HONG KONG, September 16, 2014 —Moody's Analytics, a leader in risk measurement and management, has been named best Regulatory Capital Calculation Management and best Asset and Liability Management (ALM) provider in the 2014 Asia Risk Technology Rankings. The company was also named as a top vendor overall.
To create its rankings, Asia Risk polled end-users of technology within banks, hedge funds, pension funds, insurance companies and corporate treasuries. Categories spanned enterprise risk management, liquidity risk, economic and regulatory capital, ALM and operational risk.
"As regulators demand greater transparency from firms, data management has become even more critical than in previous years and by taking a centralised data approach Moody's Analytics makes it easier for firms to meet a number of data requirements from a single source. Appreciation of this approach by the industry is reflected by Moody's Analytics topping the regulatory capital calculation and management and asset and liability management categories in Asia Risk's 2014 technology rankings," said Aaron Woolner, editor of Asia Risk.
Moody's Analytics was recognized for the strength and breadth of its regulatory risk and ALM management solutions, which help banks meet regulatory capital compliance requirements and leverage their IT investments to better manage risk and profitability.
"Throughout the Asia-Pacific region, banks are required to regularly calculate and report Liquidity Coverage and Net Stable Funding ratios, in addition to other risk-monitoring metrics pertaining to capital and liquidity," said Andrew Bockelman, Managing Director at Moody's Analytics. "Our clients are looking for solutions to stay ahead of these requirements and comply with demands for rapid and accurate reporting. This is where Moody's Analytics has focused its attention."
Moody's Analytics' clients across Asia are using RiskAuthority™ for Basel I, Il and Ill regulatory capital management and compliance, including calculation of risk-weighted asset figures and capital ratios, and to produce reports for submission to regulators.
