Helps banks meet risk management, regulatory compliance, and capital planning needs

NEW YORK, October 25, 2017 – Moody’s Analytics today launched Capital Risk Analyzer, a strategic capital planning solution which enables financial institutions to project financial statements, capital ratios, and credit metrics based on a wide range of strategic and economic scenarios.

Banks have struggled to develop stress testing processes that provide meaningful business intelligence. Stress testing and other regulatory requirements have a direct impact on capital allocation, profitability, and bank return on equity. With Capital Risk Analyzer, firms can use the outputs from regulatory exercises to inform and evaluate strategic plans, and do so without consuming substantial time and resources.

“Organizations need to optimize their business strategies while monitoring key performance indicators and risk appetite,” said Nihil Patel, Senior Director of Portfolio and Capital Strategy at Moody’s Analytics. “Decisions need to be made in real time, often with limited data and information. We are bringing together our data and analytics with that of our customers to answer strategic questions in a timely manner.”

Capital Risk Analyzer employs both user-defined assumptions and Moody’s Analytics economic scenarios and credit risk data and analytics to help clients make more informed business decisions, such as:

  • Determining the best growth strategy for shareholders
  • Optimizing their business to support performance across a range of economic scenarios
  • Balancing risks and taking profitable actions when economic conditions change rapidly
  • Meeting DFAST measurement and reporting requirements
