  • terror funding


Financial risk management (FRM) and operational risk management (OpR) are strongly related in terms of data, methods and results. Information that is necessary to handle financial risks and credit ratings is also relevant for OpR, that is, it addresses information and monitoring of portfolio structures. Rating and scoring systems are common tools for decision making in credit agreements. The application of business retail ratings supports the development of individual scoring systems in a positive way. One of the major changes to the existing legislation is the breadth of financial instruments caught by the regulation and the enactment of the changes needed for the suppression of money laundering and terror funding. The challenge for the control of the leasing and handling processes is not to disturb the automated evaluation processes in routine business while optimizing point of sale procedures with a focus on fraud detection.
