Banks and non-bank lenders are influenced by several factors, including interest rates, inflation rates, and economic growth. To address these market challenges and seize opportunities firms must maintain strong risk management practices for interest rate and credit risk as well as have contingency plans for economic downturns. Pepper’s overarching objective was to select a solution capable of consolidating risk on a global scale. The integration of Quantifi enhances Pepper’s risk assessment and facilitates hedging decisions on a local and global scale. Pepper can also run complex scenario analysis on interest rate, pre-payment, and pipeline risk.
“We sought a partner with expertise in loans and interest rate derivatives that could provide an automated, fully audited market risk solution while also being open to tailoring it to our specific needs. Quantifi not only delivered the right level of expertise but also demonstrated a genuine willingness to engage with us and understand our challenges,” comments Charles Rendall, Head of Strategic Risk, Pepper Global.
“We are delighted to be chosen by Pepper for market risk. In changing interest rate environments, monitoring and adapting strategies is key to seizing opportunities. Quantifi recognise that our clients’ journey involves more than just adapting; it’s about evolving and thriving,” comments Rohan Douglas, CEO, Quantifi.
