Common Initiative Helps UK Banks Cope with FSA Liquidity Risk Regulations

Fernbach, a risk and financial management solutions firm, has teamed up with HP and Intel to service the fast moving liquidity risk space. The three vendors are introducing a packaged solution – Liquidity Risk Appliance – to help UK financial firms meet the forthcoming Financial Services Authority (FSA) requirements.

Given the level of detailed data, analysis frequency and stress testing demands as well as tight implementation deadlines, the new regulation presents a significant challenge to many financial institutions.

The Liquidity Risk Appliance has been designed to address this imminent business need. It combines the FlexFinance Liquidity application with HP’s Proliant and Integrity blade systems. This fully integrated solution stack is pre-configured, pre-tested and seamlessly scalable.

The solution enables customers to easily and quickly deploy an end-to-end liquidity management solution that can help them address the new FSA liquidity risk regulations and meet the specified deadline. The concept of this common program incorporates easily customisable stress scenarios, liquidity analysis blueprints and all required statutory report templates. It has been validated in production environments, can be quickly deployed and is available for immediate distribution to financial clients in UK and worldwide.
