Concern grows among treasury risk managers as legacy processes create obstacles, says SunGard

RELATED TOPICS​

Fifty four per cent of companies do not believe their current risk approach is effective, emphasising the need for treasurers and risk managers to use a treasury management solution for improved risk visibility, control, analytics, and reporting.

That’s according to a recent SunGard Treasury Risk market study.
 
Andrew Bateman (pictured), SunGard’s president of treasury solutions, says: “We are living in an environment of substantial market volatility, flat economic growth in many parts of Europe, growth spurts in the United States and a major market correction in China. Treasurers require smarter tools to manage risk.  A treasury management solution which combines market risk management and performance measurement capabilities across all the positions that the treasury department manages will help give them visibility and control around their risk exposures.”
 
With more than 200 participants from around the world, the 2015 study revealed that while risk management remains a priority, the prevalence of manual methods for identifying, monitoring and managing risk is a major obstacle to reliable information and decision-making. One-third do not even have a formal risk policy in place.
 
SunGard’s treasury management solution provides sophisticated risk management, cash management, settlements, and more allowing for tighter controls, efficiency enhancements and improved reporting. The solution can be deployed on premises, in a private hosted environment or via SaaS delivery.
