Business Challenge Increased regulatory requirements that followed the global financial crisis compelled the bank to seek a new solution for liquidity management. They wanted a flexible, scalable system that would measure and analyze the end-of-day liquidity position in a way that complied with Basel II regulatory requirements and that supported proactive liquidity management by ensuring bank’s ability to meet obligations on time without incurring unacceptable losses.
Luxoft Delivered Solution The bank began the software development internally with support from an offshore vendor. As the system’s complexity and size hit critical levels, the bank looked for a new partner to complete system development and delivery. Luxoft was selected as the bank’s new software development partner and the project moved from India to the Ukraine. Luxoft successfully delivered the system on time and within the budget, providing the bank with the following key business functions: uu Management of short-term liquidity gaps against existing limits uu Management of overnight funding exposure uu Scenario Analysis uu Collateral Management uu Maintaining liquidity reserve in the form of liquid assets uu Internal and Regulatory Reporting uu Analysis of liquidity risk drivers (ratings, regional crises, insecure funding, insufficient collateral, etc.) for stress testing The Liquidity Measurement and Analysis system performs the critical tasks of extracting and cleansing data from upstream systems, modeling and generating cash flows, running stress test scenarios, and publishing liquidity risk data for end users and downstream systems. It manages over 70 data feeds and generates over 100 reports and is optimized with data quality and performance enhancements.
