Principal financing desks of large global banks are increasingly investing in asset-backed lending and private ABS trades. Given the bespoke nature of these investments, most banks rely on Excel files and manual processes for managing them.
As banks scaled these portfolios, the complexity grew with multiple underlying asset classes, deal structures and counterparties. Manual process could not be scaled to keep up with the growing size and complexity of these portfolios. As a result, portfolio management teams found themselves overburdened with manual processes for data management, performance tracking, reporting and analytics, which was slowing them down and exposing them to operational risk.
