Know more about BCBS239

The 2007 financial crisis taught a few fundamental lessons to all the financial institutions that Information technology and data were not able to support the management of financial risks. Banks were incapable of getting risk exposure aggregation data quickly at group or across business lines. Due to inability to monitor risks, banks were unable to take necessary decisions on risk in a timely manner. Due to this, the Basel Committee issued BCBS 239 which is ‘Principles for Effective Risk Data Aggregation and Risk Reporting’.The core objective of it was to improve risk data aggregation capabilities and internal risk reporting practices.

Today’s Challenge …………………………..BCBS239

One of the most significant lessons learned from the global financial crisis that began in 2007 was that banks’ information technology (IT) and data architectures were inadequate to support the broad management of financial risks. Many banks lacked the ability to aggregate risk exposures and to identify concentrations quickly and accurately at the bank group level, across business lines and between legal entities. Some banks were unable to manage their risks properly because of weak risk data aggregation capabilities and risk reporting practices. This had severe consequences to the banks themselves and to the stability of the financial system as a whole.

In response, the Basel Committee issued supplemental Pillar 2 (supervisory review process) guidance1 to enhance banks’ ability to identify and manage bank-wide risks. In particular, the Committee emphasized that a sound risk management system should have appropriate management information systems (MIS)2 at the business and bank-wide level. The Basel Committee also included references to data aggregation as part of its guidance on corporate governance.

Many in the banking industry recognize the benefits of improving their risk data aggregation capabilities and are working towards this goal.
