It’s no surprise that payments remain the #1 focus for banks looking to get the best business advantage from their technology investments. The #2 focus? Liquidity [Celent 2013 survey].
The reason is simple. The global financial crisis of 2008 was precipitated by a crisis in liquidity. As a result regulators are demanding more systematic liquidity management and, within banks, stronger awareness of liquidity pricing implications is also increasingly required. Since then, banks have realized that an enterprise approach to liquidity monitoring and management, particularly intraday liquidity, is essential to maintaining competitiveness. Indeed, regulators leave the industry with little choice, with Basel III, BCBS 248, ILAA, ILAAP, and a host of global and local regulatory compliance requirements crowding out the innovation budget.
