Bureau van Dijk Takes the Risk Perspective

LONDON, January 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Leading company information provider adds to its risk portfolio by adding two new Catalysts that help mitigate corporate credit and supplier risk

Bureau van Dijk (BvD), the leading publisher of company information, is launching two new solutions for assessing and mitigating risk. These new products are additions to its Catalyst range. The Catalyst range was created to help customers use BvD's data for specific tasks for faster results and improved efficiency. Credit Catalyst and Procurement Catalyst both blend internationally comparable company information from BvD with the customer's own data, to give improved insight on counterparties and suppliers respectively. Credit Catalyst and Procurement Catalyst will be available from January 31st.

Both Credit and Procurement Catalyst are dashboard-driven platforms that highlight key areas of risk across the users' portfolios (counterparties or suppliers). Individual companies are displayed in detail in bespoke dashboards. Other benefits include the centralisation of crucial intelligence, the ability to archive snapshots, the fact that data becomes structured, the ability to monitor companies and portfolios for changes and to get triggered workflow actions.

Information from BvD's 'data universe' that can be pulled into the user's dashboards includes standardised financial accounts and financial strength metrics, corporate ownership structures and beneficial owners, news (with negative sentiment indicators) plus potential politically exposed persons (PEPs) associated to a company or inclusions on sanction lists. Information from the customers' own records includes internal ID numbers, their own knowledge of a company (trade experience or internal credit rating), the relevant business unit (segment) plus spend figures. This combination of intelligence is ideal to manage reputational risk as well as financial risk, and users can on-board new suppliers as well as monitoring existing suppliers or counterparties.

"The ability to instantly see your riskiest areas is a key benefit," according to Louise Green, BvD's group marketing director, continuing, "You can immediately see where you need to prioritise your resources. The ability to blend both internal knowledge and external intelligence in one platform offers huge opportunities for insight and improved efficiency. For example, you can view your portfolio from a corporate group perspective so you can assess group stability and, most importantly, see your group spend figures and exposure - in seconds. Flexibility and automation are also key elements. Users can create their own dashboards and scoring methodology - so tailored analyses and scoring companies are fast, automated processes."

Credit and Procurement Catalyst join Compliance Catalyst in BvD's stable of risk-focused Catalysts. Compliance Catalyst was launched in 2013 to help manage and assess risk in the client on-boarding process, and is widely used by regulated and non-regulated firms and for 'Know Your Customer' research.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
