Risk Capital Analytics can supplement an institution’s own resources with a high quality risk audit service. We can provide some or all the following:
□ Help you plan your audits to focus on the areas where your institution is
running most risk
□ Provide auditors to carry out entire audits to your standards or we can
supplement your team with experienced risk auditors
□ Attend close-out meetings to agree audit points and write audit reports.
Our audits are conducted by auditors who have experience of both risk management and auditing in a banking environment. We have developed our own audit approach for the review of the risk management functions, and we can either apply our approach or the client’s own audit methodology.
■ Counterparty due diligence and transactional analysis
Banks and other financial institutions need to perform ongoing due diligence on their trading counterparties and determine the risk on complex transactions. Outsourcing this function can be an attractive proposition where the institution:
□ Does not have sufficient skills to perform this in house and cannot justify
the cost of hiring full time analysts.
□ Wishes to improve the quality of its counterparty and transactional
□ Wishes to reduce costs
RCA has developed its own due diligence policies and credit application formats. Client can choose to adopt these policies, or if clients have established policies and formats of their own RCA can adhere to these standards.
