How do you securely report Credit Risk across the Front Office?

The Head of Credit Risk at a major investment bank had the challenge of revamping their existing reporting system. Many different teams were spending increasing amounts of time manually compiling and distributing tables of data to users seeking management information.

Uninformative data was being distributed in a highly manual, expensive and time-consuming manner

Our solution was to use Tableau.

Partnering with a bank IT team to pull the data together, several reports were developed to bring that data to life, to make it informative and actionable.

Furthermore it was available to all necessary parties across the organisation with appropriate data access rights embedded within the reports.

Working closely with the Front Office IT team and Credit business teams, the end result was a series of dashboards covering Credit Risk, Market Risk, Limit Monitoring, Inventory Management and Profit & Loss.

We devised and implemented a sustainable, manageable and scalable permissions model. The permissions model enabled accessibility of the same reports by all levels within in the business only showing the information applicable to the user depending on their allocated access levels.

These reports became key strategic tools that were utilised by senior management in Credit for the running of their business down to traders on the desk to manage the risk on their portfolio.
