Master Data Management System Delivery

March 22, 2016

A large international financial institution was struggling to acquire, maintain and manage multiple classes and hierarchies of data within existing systems and processes. As a result, they faced significant difficulty assigning credit risk and calculating capital requirements and RWA. They also missed out on product sales opportunities, and encountered various deficiencies with several ongoing regulatory reporting deliveries.


  • A centralised data store had been deployed, but was not being leveraged to full potential due to lack of clarity around data grouping
  • Lack of consistent, cross-system hierarchies maintained across the institution
  • Inconsistent data quality, architecture and storage methodology were hindering remediation efforts
  • Multiple instances of the same entity proved difficult to track across separate systems and functional processes
