SASŪ Credit Risk Management for Banking
About SAS Credit Risk Management for Banking
SAS Credit Risk Management for Banking is a robust and flexible solution for measuring and reporting regulatory credit risk measures of a bank portfolio. SAS Credit Risk Management for Banking also helps optimize the allocation of Credit Risk Mitigants, while computing such credit risk measures. SAS Credit Risk Management for Banking lets a bank configure all regulatory parameters and options that drive the calculations, and supports multiple configuration sets. Banks can also create and perform stress tests to compute credit risk measures under stressed scenarios.
SAS Credit Risk Management for Banking, when combined with SAS Credit Scoring for Banking, provides an end-to-end solution to banks to estimate Portfolio Credit Risk. It enables you to seamlessly compute Credit Risk Parameters (Probability of Default, PD and Loss Given Default, LGD) and Credit Risk Capital charges.
The solution has an extensive catalog of prebuilt reports, including Regulatory and Internal Reports, and customizable reports. A bank can compute and report Risk weighted assets, Expected losses and Capital charges (based on the Basel-II regulatory framework), rolled up or granular at any level, by using SAS OLAP capabilities. The solution has a flexible reporting warehouse, which enables you to build ad hoc reports using any level of summarization as needed, by leveraging SAS Business Intelligence tools.
The solution offers a graphical user interface dashboard that enables you to execute risk analytics and view the results.
The most recent release is Credit Risk Management for Banking 4.8.
