Corporate risk management
with groups of connected clients
In the corporate sector, it is a common practice to process applications by first scoring the risk group of the client and then assessing the existing and proposed exposure levels for this group. To manage the complexities associated with SME & Corporate lending effectively, financial institutions can efficiently handle Groups of Connected Clients (GCC) at a group level.
By utilizing this approach, financial institutions gain a strategic advantage in managing lending complexities. The GCC framework allows for a more comprehensive evaluation of risk, as it considers the collective exposure of interconnected clients within a group. This enables a more accurate assessment of potential risks and benefits when dealing with multiple clients who are interconnected through various business relationships.
System is enhanced by ESG-related information such as physical risk, physical risk details, location, energy performance, energy consumption, heating source type, etc… With this data, Banks are able to start the assessment of each loan application, incorporate the ESG-related information in their lending strategy, and understand the physical risks in terms of finance. Besides, Banks are able to introduce preventative measures that could help to mitigate certain risks.
ApPello Corporate and SME Loan Origination System empowers banks to create diverse workflows using different workflow steps without relying on ApPello or an IT team for assistance. This flexibility enables institutions to adapt and optimize their processes according to evolving business requirements without any delays or technical hurdles.
Notably, the precondition and completion criteria for all workflows can be easily parameterized, ensuring a smooth and dynamic workflow execution. Our platform accommodates a range of parameters, allowing banks to tailor workflows to meet various scenarios and business conditions.
In addition to handling business calculations, the system offers the flexibility to manage its business parameters through Excel.
