Credit and Risk Management & Compliance and Legal Area

Credit and Risk Management Area
In the areas of risk management and credit management we propose a pragmatic and multidisciplinary approach, having gained extensive experience on the application of quantitative models and on the limits of a mechanical and dogmatic approach. We are aware of the need to integrate the relational view with a more robust management of the data available to create information useful for the decision, to make the management processes of the financial institution more robust and resilient.

Compliance & Legal Area
In compliance and legal consulting, we mainly refer to banks and financial intermediaries, in matters of banking law and financial markets. In ​​compliance, it ranges from support to the strategic management of decision-making processes, to the assessment and management of internal regulations, to the identification and remodeling of flow processes and supporting IT procedures. In the legal area the consulting includes: pre-contractual, contractual and support in the litigation. The focus is on systematic personalization of the intervention on the needs of the client, to guarantee the management of the risk in concrete terms.


Development of supporting information systems

Thanks to some important collaborations with leading Credit Institutions (Santander, Gruppo Banco Popolare, Credito Romagnolo, Extrabanca, Banca d'Alba, Banca AGCI, Cassa di Risparmio di Saluzzo, etc.), Bios has created a Corporate Performance Management vertical on the BOARD platform specific for the banking sector, which allows to process all the information for the purposes of the strategic / operational plan, monitor the achievement of the budgets and define the corrective actions. In addition, Bios, using tools such as Board, Qlik View, Microsoft develops decision-making dashboards and operational reporting (Integrated Monitoring in the management of credit and Risk management processes, eg: portfolio monitoring for days of delay and trend rating classes, capital requirements) and commercial (area, branch, manager, technical form) able to support administrative department and management in the decision-making process.

Bios intervention opportunities
