An overwhelming majority of firms seemed skeptical of their ability to prove data origin – a requirement of BCBS 239. Some 67 percent saw room for improvement and 22 percent identified a need for significant investment.
The institutions were also asked if they expected BCBS 239 compliance initiatives to deliver ancillary business benefit. Many anticipated achieving a more holistic organizational view of risks, with 22 percent citing improved stress testing capabilities and 30 percent needing a more holistic view of firm-wide risks.

SAS provides a range of solutions to help firms meet the BCBS 239 principles from risk data quality and management, data lineage, risk aggregation, visualization and reporting, and stress testing.
