About FERNBACH FERNBACH has developed the solution offering FlexFinance®, which is based upon a sophisticated methodology called EVRM. EVRM is a vision and a solution for the integration of risk management, risk and regulatory requirements, balance sheet reporting and controlling within financial institutions. The EVRM methodology is built upon a meta level data repository which collects all data from the banking and trading books and stores this centrally while simultaneously standardising and enriching the data. This centralised meta repository of financial transactions guarantees single calculation of all financial ratios ensuring perfect alignment and reconciliation so that the data can be used for purposes such as Basel II, IAS/IFRS (Multi-GAAP), Liquidity, Profitability, Regulatory Reporting, etc. The entire process is transparent and fully auditable as uniquely the data can be traced back to the deal level. This advanced approach also enables the bank to cost-effectively implement new requirements as they occur such as ICAAP. www.fernbach.com For more details please contact: Emma Connolly Director of Group Marketing FERNBACH-Software S.A.
