MORS Software 2018 Liquidity Risk Management Survey Report published

MORS Software today published the results of its 8th Annual Liquidity Risk Management Survey.

The survey was carried out between May and July 2018, with 61 banking professionals participating from 28 countries across the UK, Continental Europe, Asia, the Middle East and North America.

This year, the 2018 survey indicates that there has been no improvement in the development of liquidity risk management since last year. Rather, more of a status quo has been reached between new developments and regulatory requirements. Banks meet the current disclosure requirements; however, the survey reveals that should a crisis arise, many banks are unable to increase the frequency of disclosure.

“It has been our desire to understand where market practitioners are putting effort in their liquidity risk management development. Along with the survey history, the role of real-time risk management capability as a concept has changed. In MORS solutions the real-time capability has always been a core component. In the early days of the survey, real-time was felt to be more of a nice-to-have than a must-have. In those days banks were still putting their development efforts into getting the new ratios implemented in the first place.” said Mika Mustakallio, MORS Software CEO.
