Bank BGŻ BNP Paribas opts for Wolters Kluwer’s OneSumX for Risk

Leading Polish bank chooses OneSumX to manage ALM and liquidity risk.

Bank BGŻ BNP Paribas has opted to use Wolters Kluwer’s risk management software, joining the growing list of Eastern European firms to have become clients of the firm in recent months. The major Polish bank will use OneSumX for risk management and is in the process of implementing the solution for Asset and Liability Management (ALM) and to manage its liquidity risk. The bank will also use OneSumX to oversee its funds transfer pricing (FTP) functionality.

OneSumX provides an ecosystem of complementary and comprehensive solutions and services to manage the intersection of governance, finance, risk and compliance, increasing organizational profitability, efficiency and growth.

The ALM component is based on Wolters Kluwer’s integrated platform, enabling balance sheet modeling, stress testing, dynamic planning and others. Meanwhile, Wolters Kluwer’s liquidity risk capabilities combine a risk management/stress engine and regulatory reporting platform which enables the firm to monitor, manage and report liquidity risk.

“Bank BGŻ BNP Paribas has a leading position in Polish financial services and so we required leading technology to ensure the very best in modern risk management practices,” commented Jarosław Rot, managing director at Bank BGŻ BNP Paribas. “We have a long standing relationship with Wolters Kluwer and I look forward to working with the firm to implement OneSumX,” added Jarosław Rot.

“Our OneSumX solution is proving to be incredibly popular with banks across the region. And we are, of course, delighted that Bank BGŻ, as a long term customer, has chosen to implement the software following last year’s merger to become Bank BGŻ BNP Paribas,” comments Kris Van Bavel, EMEA managing director for Finance, Risk and Reporting at Wolters Kluwer. “We very much look forward to working with the bank’s risk team as it implements the solution.”
