New challenges in Portfolio Governance and Management
BITA Risk’s study into the current challenges facing wealth managers in portfolio governance and management revealed 5 key areas needing action: TCFD, ESG, Consumer Duty, Central Investment Plans and Risk and Suitability.
Quick efficient analysis and aggregation of data at scale, with seamless and efficient workflows for governance and client managers alike is at our core. Read below to discover how we can help you meet these new challenges with pre-trade and post trade analysis and monitoring ensuring compliance and delivering management information and governance reporting.
TCFD – automated TCFD reporting – a scalable TCFD reporting and portfolio carbon management solution that reduces effort, data complexity and costs for you, but most importantly ensures you can meet the regulatory reporting requirements and add value to your client relationship through clear reports and demonstrable trends.
ESG – delivering your sustainable investment policy – powerful visualisations simplify complex ESG data to tell a clear story for every client in the context of your firm’s sustainable policy and their individual requirements. ESG What-if allows you to see instantly the impact of any portfolio change and discuss it with the client. Multiple sources of data are easily combined in a single portfolio view of ESG analytics. Client preference capture supports an individual’s needs and ensures they are always monitored and met.
Consumer duty – MI and exception reporting across foreseeable harm and outcomes In broad scope of Consumer Duty management information and demonstrable process are key. With daily exception monitoring across key foreseeable harm metrics and analysis and consistency checks on portfolio outcomes, BITA Wealth has got this covered, in an efficient safe way.
Central Investment Plans – delivering and managing the exceptions – in every firm there are portfolios outside the plan. Being able to identify and rectify issues before they become problems both reduces your compliance risk and the chance of negative outcomes for consumers leading to everyone benefiting from a forward-thinking approach. With know exception recording and over 40 test metrics, we go beyond just risk and drift and ensure your CIP is delivered.
Risk and suitability governance – getting the fundamentals right – asset allocation drift or risk are not enough if you want to understand the true nature of a portfolio. Holding based portfolio metrics volatility and other risks should be used to deliver enterprise oversight and control – enabling firms to better manage the risks of portfolios and delivering consistent outcomes. Managers need to be empowered with intuitive, relevant portfolio analytics. Underpinned by full exception management and approval processes BITA Wealth Monitor helps firms grow through demonstrable risk management, improved client retention, better M&A impact analysis, and protection against reputational risks.
