To respond to the evolving regulatory and market landscape a key priority for OeKB was to replace their existing external systems with a next-generation single solution for risk and analytics. To satisfy counterparty risk and IFRS 13 audit requirements OeKB needed the ability to accurately calculate XVA using sophisticated Monte-Carlo based simulation across all relevant derivatives asset classes. Reporting and clearing requirements under the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) also motivated change within the organisation. To enhance market risk practices the bank wanted to calculate VaR over a one-month time horizon as it was previously calculated on a quarterly basis.
After assessing a number of technology providers OeKB chose Quantifi as it was the only provider to demonstrate the ability to support their requirements. With its single integrated front-to-middle solution Quantifi has revamped OeKB’s trading and risk management infrastructure, across several lines of business, to provide new levels of accuracy, usability, flexibility and integration. This has translated into a lower total cost of ownership, major improvements in operational efficiency and fully supports current and future business activities.
