Zenith Bank is utilising Realiti® to comply with the UK PRA
Zenith appointed Planixs as its vendor of choice for intraday liquidity in April 2015. Zenith is utilising Realiti® to comply with the UK PRA’s requirement for banks to start collecting and reporting intraday liquidity metrics from July 2015. In addition, the bank will gain benefits such as real time visibility over its intraday liquidity positions, operational risk management and the ability to optimise its liquidity buffer size and cost.
“The Planixs team not only provided us with an implemented solution but worked through the regulatory challenge with us to ensure we met the business objectives of the project in addition to the technical implementation.”
Planixs implemented Realiti® in Zenith in under two months due to the non-intrusive nature of the solution. This fast-moving implementation ensured a significant ROI for the project.
John Shea, Head of Finance and Operations for Zenith Bank, said “Our business owners of treasury, risk and compliance will be shortly reaping the benefits of the new system in terms of control, cost savings and compliance. We will now be able to provide the BCBS248 reports to the PRA on time and with confidence.”
“We have been very impressed with the ability of Planixs to implement their solution in under two months as promised. The Planixs team not only provided us with an implemented solution but worked through the regulatory challenge with us to ensure we met the business objectives of the project in addition to the technical implementation,”
“We are delighted that Zenith can now benefit from the range of capabilities of the Realiti® solution, including regulatory compliance and real time liquidity control,” said Neville Roberts, CEO of Planixs. Commenting on the implementation Neville said, “Delivering a full live implementation in under two months is testament to both the non‑intrusive nature of our solution and the collaborative approach created with colleagues at Zenith.”
