Quantifi explores the key challenges for banks in the implementation of counterparty risk management, focusing on data, technology and operational issues in the context of current trends and best practices.
Most banks are in the process of setting up counterparty risk management processes or improving existing ones. Unlike market risk, which can be effectively managed by individual trading desks or traders, counterparty risk is increasingly being priced and managed by a central credit value adjustments (CVA) desk or risk control group since the exposure tends to span multiple asset classes and business lines. Moreover, aggregated counterparty exposure may be significantly impacted by collateral and cross-product netting agreements.
New Zealand Superannuation Fund (NZSF) is the sovereign wealth fund of NZ. Its purpose is to help pre-fund the future pension/superannuation liabilities of an increasingly aging NZ population. NZSF wanted a single view of risk across multiple public and private asset classes and was looking for a solution with proven credit and liquidity risk management functionality. With Quantifi, NZSF has strengthened its risk management across risk disciplines and improved operational efficiency.
