Empowering Swiss Banking

with agile NFR Solutions

Streamlining the NFR platform by simplifying its interface and improving its performance

Our client, a renowned Swiss Universal Bank, entrusted Calimere Point with the task of improving their Non-Financial Risk (NFR) controls platform. Over time, the NFR landscape had grown in complexity due to evolving regulatory requirements and additional audit controls aimed at managing operational risk.

Our mission: Simplifying NFR for Swiss Banking

The NFR controls platform had become increasingly cumbersome for users as new functionalities were added in response to regulatory changes. Our mission was to simplify and optimize the platform while ensuring it remained compliant with the latest standards.

The NFR had evolved significantly over time as new regulatory requirements and audit controls had been adopted as part of operational risk mitigation programmes. The resultant NFR platform had become increasingly slow and difficult for users to navigate as additional functionality was bolted-on to the solution.

Industry: Financial Services, Investment Banking


Performance and Usability Issues

The resultant NFR platform became increasingly slow and difficult for users to navigate as additional functionality was added, leading to a decline in user satisfaction and efficiency.

Compliance and Regulatory Pressure

The NFR platform had been declared "not fit for purpose," putting our client under significant pressure from external regulators and internal audit teams to rectify the issues raised.

Past Failed Enhancement Attempts

Previous attempts to enhance the platform had failed, indicating the need for a new approach to overcome technical and operational obstacles.
