Real-time risk insights greatly enhance operations at International Personal Finance
International Personal Finance (IPF) operates in a challenging and dynamic market that requires a robust risk management system to facilitate quick decision-making. Prior to their implementation of Pentana Risk, IPF used an internally developed Excel-based tool to identify, assess and report risks across their business units and group. This reliance on a non-customised risk management tool required a significant amount of time and effort.
As a growing organisation operating in 11 countries, and one that is coming under increased regulations, IPF recognised the need for a tool that was comprehensive, scalable and delivered real-time visibility and control of their risks.
On selection of Pentana Risk, IPF prioritised three of the eight modules available within the software:
• The Risk Module which brings risk management to life as a dynamic and integrated process allowing IPF to identify, assess, prioritise and control their risks.
• The KPI Module which provides an integrated, organisation-wide repository for performance operation allowing IPF to measure their risks.
• The Action Module which is designed to consolidate all action plans, initiatives and key projects in one location.
We identified that we could produce better quality, faster reports with Pentana Risk, a tool that easily catered to the complexity of our risk and internal control process - and number of users - whilst being compatible with our IT infrastructure.
