CARY, NC  (03 april 2013)  – Reflecting increasing technological advancement across Pakistan's banking industry, United Bank Limited (UBL) will use software from business analytics leader SAS to increase the effectiveness of its enterprise risk management system. One of the oldest and largest commercial Pakistani banks, UBL plans to implement SAS solutions for managing credit, market and operational risk. With SAS as its risk management framework, UBL can adopt more banking best practices into its operations to improve ratings, reduce finance costs, generate faster feedback from loan applications and help meet Basel II requirements.

UBL will use SAS' powerful analytics to develop custom scorecards and credit risk models rapidly, investigate existing and new portfolio customers, accurately model capital requirements, and maintain a comprehensive audit trail. SAS will also enhance UBL's application scoring, customer behavior analytics, and the bank's ability to effectively manage data for better decision making.
