Nedbank selects SAS OpRisk solution

February 2008 News & Events

In a bid to get a better handle on the potential threats and opportunities that operational risk management may hold, Nedbank recently purchased the SAS OpRisk solution from SAS Institute.

"Risk Management is one of the top business priorities for Nedbank. On the other hand operational risk on its own affects everyone, as it is essentially the risk that controls the business enablers (people, processes and systems). When this fails, services to customers are often disrupted or not delivered at the required standard. It is with this in mind that we selected SAS's OpRisk solution to help us objectively and scientifically measure exposure to operational risk in our business," says Conrad Theron, head: Group Operational Risk Monitoring Nedbank Group.

"We wanted a solution which could integrate all the elements of the risk management process in a seamless manner," adds Theron. "Compliance is important to us, but was a secondary motivating factor when we developed our operational risk management strategy, the primary reason for doing this remains the business case."

The SAS OpRisk solution is an end-to-end solution built on the SAS Enterprise Intelligence Platform; it gives customers access to powerful data management, analytics, and regulatory reporting and disclosure capabilities. The product has been developed in order to assist customers mitigate, manage and to an extent control risk.

Nedbank has selected the entire OpRisk suite and began rollout of the product in early 2008 in Nedbank.
