Challenges to Successful Credit Risk Management
« on: September 19, 2018, 01:22:38 PM »
Credit risk refers to the probability of loss due to a borrower’s failure to make payments on any type of debt. Credit risk management is the practice of mitigating losses by understanding the adequacy of a bank’s capital and loan loss reserves at any given time – a process that has long been a challenge for financial institutions.

Challenges to Successful Credit Risk Management:

inefficient data management:  An inability to access the right data when it’s needed causes problematic delays.

No groupwide risk modeling framework:  Without it, banks can’t generate complex, meaningful risk measures and get a big picture of groupwide risk.

Constant rework:  Analysts can’t change model parameters easily, which results in too much duplication of effort and negatively affects a bank’s efficiency ratio.

Insufficient risk tools: Without a robust risk solution, banks can’t identify portfolio concentrations or re-grade portfolios often enough to effectively manage risk.

Cumbersome reporting:  Manual, spreadsheet-based reporting processes overburden analysts and IT.
