Wolters Kluwer and FNA to help banks respond to fast changing market conditions

The alliance will enable a faster and deeper analysis of market dynamics.

Wolters Kluwer and Financial Network Analytics (FNA) recently established an Asia Pacific alliance to enable a faster and deeper analysis of market dynamics.

Using network science, the FNA platform provides an intuitive visualisation of the complex interconnections between elements of financial networks. It creates a map that can communicate and help financial experts to understand market dynamics quickly and effectively.

The solution takes complex data tapped from either public data sources or a financial institution's data and crunches it into dashboards. The map created is then displayed from a network perspective, centred around the financial institution's portfolios, providing an overall view of the institution's universe.

The financial institution can then access the dashboard to make decisions based on the information provided, whether they are a regulator looking at systemic risk, an asset manager who needs to take action on a portfolio, or a credit risk officer trying to identify what macro economic factors have the biggest influence on the institution's customer defaults. The user can also perform adaptive stress tests to anticipate the overall effects.

"With heightened regulatory requirements, our banking customers more than ever need to respond to fast changing market conditions and manage increased reporting to regulators. Together with our other OneSumX modules, this intelligent solution will enable them to quickly run stress tests as well as facilitate compliance with the new international accounting standard IFRS 9," said Chris Puype, Managing Director, Asia Pacific, for Wolters Kluwer's financial services business.
