It's interesting to hear it said at IPS2011 that performing real time reconciliation is crucial to managing liquidity risk . I would agree with this but for the fact that if the demand is really there then why is it that the necessary data is so hard to
come by? Crucial implies that this is must have data, but what are banks doing to ensure that they are able to deliver timely and complete data for reconciliation to their correspondent customers? The message needs to get through that there are consumers
of real time liquidity data who regard this as critical, perhaps this will soon become a differentiator when selecting correspondent banks.
