SunGard has expanded its industry-leading risk advisory service by launching the Ambit Risk Institute.
The Ambit Risk Institute builds on SunGard's experience in risk consulting and expertise in banking, technology and regulations to help financial institutions enhance how risk and performance are managed, achieve regulatory compliance, and improve internal governance. It will also be a source of information, education and thought leadership about risk management and related issues.
Regulations such as Dodd-Frank and Basel III are driving banks to adopt more stringent risk management practices. Meeting stricter capital adequacy requirements and demonstrating greater visibility and control over liquidity will require more disciplined management of risk. The Ambit Risk Institute brings together consulting skills with banking, technology and regulatory knowledge to help banks tackle complex risk and performance management issues such as data capture, analysis, reporting, governance and compliance..
Andreas Hug, chief operating officer for SunGard's Ambit Risk & Performance Management business unit, said, "Investing in improving risk management capabilities will help banks benefit from increased performance and competitiveness and higher levels of risk-adjusted profitability. Leveraging the experience of our banking experts and our technology solutions, SunGard's Ambit Risk Institute provides advisory services and thought leadership to help banks better manage risk and performance and achieve regulatory compliance."
