This Tier-1 bank’s domestic markets priced deposit products independently, with limited regional or global input or oversight. With no means to align local market practices with global strategies, the bank faced conduct risk exposure, below par balance sheet use and P&L volatility.
Objectives included maintaining a strategic focus on growing “sticky” core deposits, differentiating pricing for deposits by segment, managing and monitoring conduct risk and substantiating pricing outcomes to clients and regulators with full transparency.
Leveraging Zafin’s Rates & Fees to streamline rate management, the bank is now equipped with a system of record for wholesale deposit base rates globally.
The bank automated pricing for 98 percent of its Transaction Banking balance sheet globally, and mitigated conduct risk with a centralized automated system for pricing across hundreds of currencies and market rate inputs.
