BII’s high requirements necessitated a comprehensive and flexible design of the risk management solution it was looking for.

Karl Tasch, Founder & CEO of FinAPU, explains: “The joint implementation of the project with the risk team of BII was an exciting and rewarding task for us – due to the complex portfolio structure, the high security requirements and the desired time as well as budgetary implementation framework, we set new standards as a service provider.” The BII portfolio is managed centrally from London, with all BII subsidiaries worldwide using the system.

In addition to a comprehensive quantitative database, the addition of qualitative elements is particularly important to us. The project finance interface developed specifically for us is an additional USP of our collaboration with FinAPU,” Isabelle Niño, Director of Credit Risk, British International Investment, explains the benefits.
