Growth Rates in Risk Technology Spending to Vary Dramatically

In a newly released report, Meridien Research predicts that spending on risk management technology will be essentially flat over the next twelve months. This relatively flat growth overall, however, hides some critical differences in where financial institutions are choosing to put their investments going forward. The report examines expenditures in enterprise-level analytics, desk-level analytics and risk-specific systems architecture. ‘Some sectors, such as enterprise market risk and asset liability management systems investments, have continued to slow, ‘ said Deborah Williams, Co-founder and Research Director at Meridien Research, ‘while other highly-touted markets, such as risk application service providers have failed to materialize. We don’t expect these conditions to be true of newer and more in-demand areas such as operational risk or infrastructure investments.’
