While seeking the most efficient approaches to deploying capital, banks are now investing in classes outside their traditional base of assets. This includes diversification of assets into mortgage servicing right (MSR), whole loans, and structured products as well as consolidations or restructuring of businesses to increase operational efficiency and reduce costs. Concurrently, the regulatory regime is requiring banks to re-evaluate enterprise risk management processes and systems. Managing the data processes, focusing on capital efficiency and operational risk while aggressively managing costs can be challenging.
