Chartis: SAS a leader in credit risk management systems

SAS recognized for data management, flexible analytics, advanced stress testing

Regulations and an unpredictable economy are forcing banks to re-examine how they measure and manage credit risk. The answer lies in merging real-time and data capacity in a single risk framework. For many institutions, that means SAS®. The analytics leader was named a category leader in Chartis’ 2016 RiskTech Quadrant® for Credit Risk Management Systems for the Banking Book.

"Banks using SAS® credit risk solutions can benefit from robust data management and analytics to deliver high-performance environments," said Chartis Managing Partner Peyman Mestchian.
