Isracard successfully implements FinArch’s Financial Studio for BaselII

Ghent/Tel Aviv – September 22 2009. Financial Architects, international provider of a Finance Resource Planning (FRP) platform for the finance industry, announced that Isracard has implemented its solution as a platform to calculate the Isracard Group’s capital management requirements.

Isracard, Israel’s number one Credit Card company, initiated a software evaluation project in 2008, and selected FinArch, expanding FinArch’s footprint in Israel. FinArch’s Financial Studio solution ensures compliance with the Basel II regulation under Pillar I, Pillar II and Pillar III.

With Financial Studio, Isracard has implemented a solution widely recognised as market leading in the space of risk and capital management. Gartner for instance has positioned FinArch in the Leaders Quadrant in the Magic Quadrant for Basel II software applications. Financial Studio’s risk and capital management solutions come with an extensive range of functionality to address the requirements of Basel II, Liquidity Risk, Economic Capital, RAPM, ALM and other risk-related performance measurement ratios. It provides a fully integrated capital and risk management solution that delivers comprehensive support for enterprise-wide credit, market, and operational risk management, ensuring compliance with external regulations. Organisations maximize the investments made to meet the immediate short term requirements, meanwhile building a comprehensive capital framework and enterprise risk management platform with superior internal controls.

Rami Shpayer, Operation Department Manager and Chief Risk Controller at Isracard, comments: “Financial Studio is calculating and reporting the required capital needed and the capital adequacy according to Basel II. Currently, the report is structured according to the European CoRep regulations. We look forward to proceeding with this successful collaboration in line with definitions and specific structures as specified by the Bank of Israel”.

Frédéric Simons, VP Regional Business Development at FinArch, says: “Financial Studio offers high scalability in terms of volume and functionality and, thus, makes the perfect solution for Isracard Group. This relationship demonstrates FinArch’s further success and ongoing commitment to the Middle East region. We are very pleased with Isracard’s confidence in our company to provide them with a sophisticated risk and capital management platform.”

The Financial Studio FRP platform embraces accounting, risk and capital management, MIS and compliance solutions, and is used by many financial institutions worldwide. FinArch is positioned as a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Basel II software applications. The company’s focus coupled with a solution that can be scaled to meet broader corporate performance management, has thus been recognized by the global financial markets.
