The Chief Risk Officer Wants This for Christmas

December 5, 2016 | Jonathan Pryer

As it’s the time of year for giving, we thought we’d take a light-hearted peek into what the chief risk officer might want for Christmas from their risk analytics software provider:

Dear Partner,

For 2017, I’d like it if you could take the hassle and stress out of credit and lending risk decision-making. With that in mind, my Christmas wish list this year is:

  • Speed – I’d like our customers to wait no longer than a second for a decision on their loan or credit application. I want us to be so responsive that customers have a ‘Siri’-like experience. This would accelerate our customer onboarding and improve our customers’ experience
  • Independence – I’d like to be able to build new offerings or products, test them and go live with them in just a few hours. I don’t want to be dependent on my IT organization and I don’t want to be dependent on my vendors
  • Flexibility – everything is about data these days. But we’re not making the most of it if it takes us weeks or months to integrate to service bureaus. I need integration with structured and unstructured data services in hours
  • Compliance – regulation is a fact of life in our industry. But I need a better way of managing the requirements that come out of it. A flexible platform supporting rapid process updates would help me stay on top of changes.


With this wish list granted I can look forward to a high-performing, risk-managed 2017; which beats a book token any holiday season.

Chief Risk Officer
