Objectives

The objective was clear: shift the team’s mindset towards business intelligence and data mastery to optimise liquidity management and enhance operational efficiency.

The department was entrenched in manual processes that added little value beyond data collection. Armed with a background in data science and technology, the bank set out to implement a robust data aggregator to streamline the collection of critical information, including SWIFT statements and forecast data.

The Solution

A phased rollout commenced with the integration of Realiti within the trading desk, facilitating real-time visibility into settled positions and operational efficiency improvements. Subsequent efforts focused on optimising forecasting capabilities and leveraging advanced features within the Realiti suite to drive strategic decision-making.
