Union Bank of India modernises risk management with SAS

Union Bank of India, a premier public sector bank in the country, has successfully modernised its risk management systems by implementing SAS solutions to enhance and streamline the Bank’s risk operations and reporting through advanced model risk management solutions. 

Union Bank of India partnered with SAS and embarked on a critical transformation initiative that addressed the data amalgamation and met RBI’s regulatory requirements for credit and operational risk while obtaining an enterprise view of the bank’s risk exposure throughout the risk management life cycle. The SAS team deployed a suite of SAS tools for risk modernisation, including SAS Stratum, SAS IRM Solution, SAS Data Integration Studio, SAS GCM, SAS Visual Analytics, and SAS Op-VaR. 

This modernisation resulted in significant credit risk RWA and capital savings with a single integrated system for RWA computation. This standardised system enabled rapid RWA generation for large volumes of data within just a few hours. In addition to RBI compliance across reporting, risk computing, and audit functionality, the project also provided a 360-degree view of operational risk with automated Key Risk Indicator (KRI) monitoring and trend analysis. 

Ashwini Kumar Choudhary, Chief Risk Officer, Union Bank of India, said, “Bank’s modernisation project marks a significant milestone in our journey towards robust risk management. We look forward to SAS’ continued support in ensuring we are equipped to address regulatory requirements and drive business resilience.”

Noshin Kagalwalla, Vice President & Managing Director, SAS India, said, “Ease of integration and regulatory compliance is key to ensure a smooth transition for amalgamated entities. We are excited to support Union Bank of India in the endeavor to modernise their risk management systems. We strive to empower the bank in navigating regulatory shifts and bolstering operational efficiency.”
