Spreadsheets and their role within operational risk – Instrument valuation issues, data and regulationWhite Paper
Regulations such as BCBS 239 are forcing changes in the usage and governance of spreadsheets and other end-user computing (EUC) applications in financial markets. This paper outlines the main risks in spreadsheet usage in derivative and fixed income valuation, and explains some of the regulators motivations in addressing this source of operational risk.
This paper describes how spreadsheet calculations and analytics can be integrated within a centralized, audited Enterprise Data Management (EDM) process. Given regulations such as BCBS 239 and Dodd-Frank mandating a reduction in the reliance upon manual end-user processes, such an approach offers the flexibility, agility and ease of use that business users desire, but within a framework that meets the needs of auditors and regulators for increased data quality, transparency and reduced operational risk.
