Span the gap
Spanning the gap between risk and finance
A 2013 report from Chartis Research showed that 88% of risk and finance practitioners see the integration of their functions as a major priority. However, more than half have yet to implement an enterprise-level plan to achieve this integration. To meet regulatory reporting requirements today you need an integrated financial and risk architecture. Regulators are also mandating that financial firms reconcile the data used in risk management to the data used in financial reporting.
This is easier said than done. The focus and functions of Finance and Risk are different, and over time, each group has developed its own set of systems, tools, and processes to manage their requirements. Plus, many functions in your organization may be functioning in separate silos, something that’s difficult to reconcile.
