Market Volatility and Risk Management


Market Volatility and Risk Management

The Challenge

The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 led to unprecedented market volatility, with stock prices plummeting and economic uncertainty prevailing worldwide. Financial institutions had to quickly adapt their risk management strategies to mitigate the impacts of the crisis on their portfolios and ensure financial stability.

Financial markets are inherently volatile, and geopolitical events, economic fluctuations, and regulatory changes can have significant impacts on asset prices and market stability. Effective risk management strategies are essential for mitigating exposure to market risks and ensuring financial resilience.

The Solution

Capsifi helps by providing a clear line of sight from relevant legislation and policies, through to the organizational controls that enforce them, ensuring that consumers privacy is protected and the company’s IP is safeguarded.

In this way, assurance and evidence of compliance becomes incidental, alleviating what is traditionally a resource-intensive and error-prone activity.

From a data perspective, information objects can be classified to identify their level of risk which may then be tracked through every system, process and role that is involved in handling that data, providing clear and indisputable lineage of data risk.

By using painpoints and business outcomes to classify the types and levels of risk that exist through the operating model, Capsifi can provide risk mitigation plans and pre-emptive action plans to reduce the chance of being caught unprepared in the event of a breach.

Here’s some practical ways the Capsifi platform can address and resolve these industry-wide challenges:

  • Establish a clear line of sight from legislation and policy to controls, business rules, and operating model elements
  • Establish a clear line of sight from legislation and policy to controls, initiatives, or projects, and epics (including costs)
  • Use business outcomes to suggest technology innovations to address risk pain points for different categories of risk.
  • Create mitigation plans and pre-emptive action plans
