Andrew’s Blog – Risk Architectures R Us

Subscribe to our newsletter

For those of you who missed last month’s seminar in London on approaches to risk data, fret no more: We will be continuing the debate next Thursday in a webinar with our friends from Lloyds Bank, Sybase and Fidessa; sign up here, it’s free, and it’ll also give you a flavour of what we have lined up at our May 22 Data Management Summit.

As you may recall, the seminar – attended by a group of risk architects from some of the City’s major institutions – looked at how the business and regulatory imperatives driving risk management requirements are impacting how firms approach the way they collect, aggregate and present risk information. These were some of the themes from A-Team’s recent research and published in our paper, ‘Managing Risk Data in the Siloed Enterprise’.

I’ll be presenting the key findings of that paper at the webinar. Then we’ll get into a wider debate, with the practitioners’ view coming from Graham Smith, who as Lead Enterprise Architect at Lloyds TSB Bank knows a thing or two about the issues in question. We’ll also take a look at front office requirements, with help from Ana Herrero-Wallace, Head of Fidessa’s new Transaction Cost Analysis initiative.

All this risk infrastructure activity reflects the clear message we are receiving from the marketplace about the lack of established best practices in this area. The legacy of 20 years of market and credit risk systems organised by line of business has left a siloed landscape of individual data repositories that find it difficult to speak to one another, are difficult to extract useful data from, and operate to their own timescales.

And it’s this situation that today’s data managers and, increasingly, risk architects are being tasked to address, in order to meet regulatory demands for transparency, and business demands for useful business intelligence.

So, if this resonates, join us next Thursday for the Sybase-hosted webinar, download the paper, and sign up to come along to our Data Management Summit on May 22 to learn about:

  • Key regulatory and business drivers
  • Organisational hurdles to achieving holistic risk management and analytics
  • Proven technology approaches to shifting risk and analytics to the on-demand, enterprise imperative
  • The role of governance and organisational approach to securing project funding
