Geneva, Switzerland (PRWEB) July 09, 2012
Banque Cantonale Neuchâteloise (BCN), a Swiss universal bank based in the canton of Neuchâtel and a longstanding customer of SunGard’s Ambit Asset Liability Management (ALM) solution, has now deployed SunGard’s Ambit Funds Transfer Pricing (FTP). Since 2006, BCN has been using Ambit ALM to perform static and dynamic asset-liability management and liquidity risk management and now is also using the solution to carry out a full range of FTP analysis.
BCN is using Ambit for margin analysis, and to apply FTP to help enhance transparency across the risk-adjusted profitability contributions of the bank’s assets and liabilities. In addition, BCN is using Ambit to help it perform complete multi-dimensional analysis of its balance sheet and build consistency with ALM results in order to help it maximize net interest income, comply with regulations and improve risk management. The bank was able to implement Ambit FTP within a demanding time-frame of two months.
Arnaud Lecoultre, Head Finance and Risk, said, “We have built a trusted relationship with SunGard having used its Ambit risk management solutions for several years. The addition of the FTP component of SunGard’s comprehensive Ambit asset liability management solution is helping us further enhance our ability to measure, monitor and manage our balance sheet and increase the transparency of our business decision-making across the bank.”
Alwin Meyer, chief operating officer of SunGard’s Ambit Risk & Performance Management business unit, said, “As margin pressure continues to grow in this low interest rate and highly uncertain environment, our customers are looking to manage liquidity risk and basis risk to help maximize interest income. SunGard’s Ambit ALM solution can help banks like Banque Cantonale Neuchâteloise effectively measure and manage risk, forecast balance sheet performance and meet regulatory requirements.”
