Risk Solutions for Banks

The likely problem

1. Banks in India, especially National and Government supported banks, have a
very large network of branches across which business is conducted. These
branches operate using Corporate business policies and procedures that were
drafted many years ago and are using technologies that are either old or
patched.

2. Further, the visibility in the lending transactions for these banks is low
due to poor aggregation, categorization and analytical tools used. I am not
sure, but when all loans across India are aggregated at Corporate, would the HO have a clear understating of risk and reward areas.

3. The control framework for lending and other commercial activities is, in some
places excessive, such as banking applications taking exceedingly long time for
approval. Sometimes, the controls are non existent in some portions of the
business process that could subject the transaction to undue exposure.

Riskpro Consulting’s Risk Solutions

A few areas that Riskpro can deliver effectively and within reasonable time
and costs are:


1.Exposure Analytical Tools- Many banks have good processes for liability side transactions such as acceptance of deposits, Treasury functions. They need improvements in the asset side, or the lending side. With the assistance of risk technology, exposure analytical framework can be developed that will integrate operational risk with visibility in the lending transactions. Through the exposure analysis, credit risk management, that the banks already have in place, will be refined. Transactions can be sliced in a number of operational, strategic and regulatory ways.



2. Operational Risk Assessment- Through review of corporate policies and
procedures, Riskpro will be able to introduce enterprise wide controls where
they are non existent and eliminate duplicate controls. Controls in one
department, when viewed as a single BU, may be adequate and necessary, but when viewed as a corporation, may overlap and be excessive. Such review can be very effective and the foundation for other areas for the company such as Risk Management Dept, internal audit, Corporate Governance.



3. Out-sourcing assistance with Credit Risk Management and Modeling- If some of the banks are performing credit risk assessment, management and modeling
internally or with the help of a few external consultants, Riskpro can provide
hands for such function. The team will be supervised by Bank’s employees, but
will be able to do intensive research and introduce best practices. More like
outsourcing.



4. Review of business policies and procedures- Again, more of lending hands, we can get in to review a portion of the business policies and redefine keeping in
mind the overall Enterprise wide risk Management. So, we would rewrite
paragraphs that hinder an integrated risk framework
