KUALA LUMPUR – AFFINBANK Group (“AFFINBANK”) and Moody’s Analytics recently won The Asian Banker’s Liquidity Risk Technology Implementation of the Year award.

AFFINBANK was able to improve its operational efficiency, reporting capabilities, and risk analysis, and achieve its overall objective of improved risk management and business decision making, by implementing the Moody’s Analytics RiskAuthority™ and RiskConfidence™ solutions.

The award was received during The Asian Banker Risk Management Awards and Risk Technology Implementation Awards 2017 which was held in Singapore.

“The implementation of these solutions has further strengthened AFFINBANK’s risk management capabilities, in line with the recently launched AFFINITY — a strategic transformation program of the Group,” said En. Kamarul Ariffin Bin Mohd Jamil, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Affin Bank Berhad.

“With the ability to perform more frequent and more granular data analytics, we are in a better position to monitor and manage our risk exposures in accordance with our risk appetite, and to institute early corrective action when required. The risk management solutions cover our Asset Liability Management and regulatory reporting needs and incorporate a large exposure module to enhance control of risk across our business entities.”

“The implemented solutions facilitate and articulate risk management across various business units, which are fundamental for building and monitoring a robust risk culture within AFFINBANK Group,” added Kamarul. “Consequently, risk appetite and risk exposures become better understood by the relevant stakeholders within the Bank Group, resulting in better alignment and more cohesion in pursuing common goals."

The risk management solutions support AFFINBANK’s business growth by enabling a fully automated end-to-end submission process, from data loading all the way to generating reports. AFFINBANK has used the risk management solutions to establish a consistent and repeatable workflow that quickly and reliably produces results.

“We are honored to receive this award from The Asian Banker, and to share it with our partners at AFFINBANK,” said Noah Berliner, Managing Director at Moody’s Analytics. “This award reflects our commitment to helping organizations meet their regulatory and operational challenges. Our solutions enabled AFFINBANK to put in place a holistic risk management framework to drive its business forward.”

“AFFINBANK Group demonstrated outstanding project governance in the completion of the liquidity risk management project, which allowed it to leverage the enhanced risk analytics and measurements to improve strategic business planning and decision making,” remarked Foo Boon Ping, Managing Editor, The Asian Banker.
