The Challenge

A challenge for the for the Auto Finance Company Board, Executives and Risk, Information, Compliance and Audit Professionals

  • Calculated risks have to be taken every day to run an organization, but most organization fail to monitor and manage risk effectively. Organizations need to understand how to monitor risk-taking, whether they are taking the right risks, and whether risk is managed effectively. A cavalier and silo approach to risk-taking is a result of a poorly defined leadership and risk culture. It results in disaster, providing case studies for future generations on how poor risk management leads to the demise of corporations
  • Multiple platforms are being used in silos further cementing the silo culture which can be driven through either having legacy systems, not being aware of the integrated GRC tools or it could be driven by “egos of resistance to change”. Nonetheless, unless the organization shifts a culture and changes the play book that we are going to break down the silos between Governance, Risk, Information, Compliance , Audit and foster a culture of tighter communication between each functional departments and ensure visibility of risk and compliance metrics across all of the functions through a single platform, it will never achieve optimal efficiency nor enterprise excellence – this is NOT an easy task and requires a culture shift and needs to be part of the auto finance senior leadership 3 year strategic objective.
  • Gone are the years of simplicity in auto loan business operations. Keeping this complexity and change in sync is a significant challenge for boards, executives, as well as risk management professionals throughout the business. Auto loan industry has to invest in modernizing and implement an integrated governance, risk, information, compliance and audit systems with bleeding edge artificial technology and architecture to improve operational throughput and minimize non-interest expenses. In order to stay competitive, provide exceptional service and increase quality, auto finance companies have to balance their focus from growing their portfolio to investing in integrated governance, risk, information, compliance and audit management systems.

The Solution

  • For some auto loan companies, risk management is only an expanded view of routine financial controls, is nothing more than a deeper look into internal controls with some heat maps and that does NOT truly provide an enterprise view of risk. Risk is pervasive throughout the entire organization. There are variety of departments that manage risk and compliance with various tools, models, varying taxonomies, with different frameworks and point of view in how risk should be monitored and measured at a functional level that continues for the organization to remain in chaos and creates a huge challenge.
  • With the advancement in technology, these days companies can implement an integrated Governance, Risk, Information, Compliance and Audit Management (GRICA) system based on artificial intelligence which is a big data approach to GRICA. It can automate several risk and compliance routines, enables mapping of regulations and standards to internal and financial controls, automate the regulatory change management with alerts and tasks to selected user base, map risk to company & department goal, automate efficacy and effectiveness of internal controls which is tedious and manual process requiring an army of people. Further a sophisticated and advanced integrated GRC system should be able to take in external data feeds from other internal systems such as financial and credit risk systems and create concept maps between financial and credit risk data to operational risk data which gives you a view of where all the risks intersect, compounds and interrelates and provide enterprise risk view through a single platform – NOW THAT IS NIRVANA
