EastWest Banking Corporation (EastWest) has selected Wolters Kluwer’s OneSumX for Risk Management to manage its Market Risk and Asset and Liability Management (ALM) requirements. The Philippines-based bank will implement the solutions to work alongside other Wolters Kluwer software modules, including OneSumX for Finance, which it has used for many years.
EastWest is a universal bank in the Philippines that provides a wide array of products and services to retail and mid-market corporate customers.
Wolters Kluwer FRR’s OneSumX Market Risk solution provides an integrated view of profit and loss and risks on balance sheet. Based on a centralized data structure specifically designed for financial institutions, the OneSumX Market Risk solution offers all modern risk analytics and techniques, from basic sensitivity and gap analysis, through more advanced Value at Risk (VaR) techniques and into simultaneous dynamic simulation of credit and market risk, based on Monte Carlo modeling.
The ALM component of OneSumX for Risk Management is based on Wolters Kluwer’s integrated platform, enabling balance sheet modeling, stress testing and dynamic planning.
“Wolters Kluwer is a trusted technology partner of ours, having provided software that helps us manage our financial reporting obligations for many years now,” commented Grace Ang, Chief Risk Officer, at EastWest. “We look forward to working with Wolters Kluwer’s experts on what is an important implementation for us in the risk area.”
