A Call for Crisis Analytics: The Liquidity and Credit Risk Management Response of Asia/Pacific Banks to COVID-19
This IDC Perspective presents how Asia/Pacific banks are giving intense focus on their risk management frameworks in the context of new and emerging trends born out of the COVID-19 pandemic. Two areas rightfully receive such focus: liquidity risk and credit risk.
Michael Araneta, AVP for IDC Financial Insights Asia/Pacific says, "Crisis Analytics will be the best-response analytics to the unique features of the current systemic shock, and the surrounding liquidity and credit implications for financial institutions. Crisis Analytics brings together several capabilities that may already be in place within banks but will need tuning for current adverse conditions."
Araneta continues "The word "crisis' has unfortunately become a description of this juncture in financial services, but could serve as a call to arms for the bank to bring together its capabilities in risk management, analytics, models, data management, and technology."
