Financial Services

Regulatory compliance requirements are driving Financial Services firms to leverage Business Analytics to meet the increasing demands for more consistency in statutory compliance reporting and for more transparency into the underlying data, calculations and assumptions that are the basis for filings. Visionary firms take it a step further, however, and leverage increased statutory demands as a catalyst to get ahead of competition.

A growing number of banks are making the move to industry standard platforms, purpose-built for managing a broad range of financial instruments and meeting these regulatory compliance demands. Visionary clients that closely collaborate with us are looking to not only meet those requirements, but also transform financial and operational processes and realize the competitive advantage that a sound analytical foundation provides. Those clients that leverage these initiatives to leapfrog competition arrive at the same conclusion: “If only we had done this years ago – we would have operated more efficiently and have made so many better decisions and better investments along the way.”

Adopting a standard industry data model establishes a foundation for integrating disparate systems and processes, for sharing common models and calculation engines, and for creating transparency. This in turn opens the organization to more advanced capabilities, such as iterative balance sheet planning at the individual instrument level, advanced profitability analytics, and automation of regulatory risk analysis and reporting.

Financial services companies need to adapt at faster rates than ever before. To do so, they need to manage their portfolio in a systematic and efficient fashion. They need to focus on efficiency, innovation and technology to create competitive advantage. Peloton has the knowledge and skills to integrate analytics, risk management, and scenario planning into these organization’s day to day management.

Peloton’s key areas of focus for financial services institutions:

  • Data Foundation – Address complex analytical demands with a new approach to data management, enabling both enterprise-level, cross-functional analytics and deep line-of-business–level analytics and modeling for Finance, Marketing, and Risk departments.

  • Profitability Manager – Calculate profitability information by products, channels, segments, and individual customer relationships on a risk-adjusted basis.
  • Balance Sheet Planning – Accurately forecast and plan net interest margin using asset liability model type capabilities in a planning framework.
