To comply with Dodd-Frank and Basel III regulations, clients integrate Bank Navigator’s robust capital adequacy forecasting capabilities into their risk management programs. Adapted from the Federal Reserve Bank’s testing criteria, the Trepp Capital Adequacy Stress Testing (T-CAST) solution creates direct response to the Dodd-Frank financial reform legislation. Delivered as a turn-key solution, Trepp provides bank executives the information needed to make informed decisions.

This high-powered product administers bank benchmarking in a time-and cost-efficient manner within a single database. Associ¬ated with Trepp data and an¬alytics, Bank Navigator gives the earliest available intelligence, based on call reports, enforcement actions, and capital raising events. Bank Navigator models produce several measures to iden¬tify potential risk factors within a bank that ascertains preparedness for regulatory compliance and provide third-party valida¬tion of results.

Trepp develops its own set of risk scores that once aggregated, form an institution risk profile. Some of these performance-based metrics include Trepp’s CAMELS score. It provides a comprehensive look into a bank’s performance by scoring on Capital, Assets, Management, Earnings, Liquidity, and Sensitivity. For the preparation of regulatory exams, Trepp’s Watchlist and risk scores leverage T-CAMELS and compares key performance indicators with robust peer analysis.

The firm aims to forecast asset performance, earnings, and capital adequacy under adverse economic and financial market conditions responding to regulatory requests. Further the NY-based firm seeks to create custom peer groups by selecting a unique group of banks for the next generation capability and streamlines the trading workflow process for workgroups using TreppTrade by aggregating pricing information from messages, corporate emails, and attachments.
