PROJECT DESCRIPTION To fund its various activities, each year the Client typically issues bonds, both plain vanilla and structured. It also executes the derivatives to hedge the bonds and loans and executes buyback transactions to provide backstop liquidity to investors. Accurate valuation is a critical function required to support Client's business.The current valuation solution is a combination of 2 systems. Due to lack of suitable updates in both systems, many trades have to be valued in separate solutions and/or requires manual work-arounds, which introduces financial and operational risk, and inefficiency.The current liquidity management system, is an internally developed system that is over 15 years old. This system supports the loading of data from source systems, projecting cash flows and performing calculations, but it requires manual intervention for processing daily reporting needs.The ultimate goal is to implement a liquidity risk management system with tools for measuring, monitoring, controlling and reporting liquidity risk.Technologies used: Murex; SQL; UNIX; JIRA; CRM; and possible other tools.
