LBBW Chooses the Razor Risk Platform

London, UK – June 2017

Razor Risk has secured a contract to deploy our award winning solution Razor™, with Landesbank Baden-Württemberg (LBBW), Germany’s biggest state-backed Landesbank lender. LBBW is a medium-sized universal bank and the central bank of the savings banks in Baden-Württemberg, Saxony and Rhineland-Palatinate.

Razor Risk is a specialist provider of integrated Counterparty Credit Risk Measurement and Limit Management solutions for the financial services industry, and is replacing an existing system to enable the LBBW to manage issuer, counterparty and country risk, globally.

Rami Cassis, CEO Razor Risk said: “The commitment by LBBW affirms that in the ever changing regulated environment our clients operate in, the Razor platform gives them an advantage in running their businesses. This is a significant step forward for Razor Risk Technologies which reflects the hard work, expertise and focus of our team and our counterparts at LBBW who worked with us to finalise their choice. The Razor team and I are looking forward to working closely with LBBW in the coming months as we build out our relationship and deliver a specialised solution.

Razor™ enables firms to automate business processes and to calculate and report on exposures in real-time, whilst providing rich analytics for end users to assess and monitor issuer, counterparty and country risk within one system.

Peter Walsh, Global Head of Sales at Razor Risk said: “We are pleased to be working with LBBW to transform their risk management approach to a global model, bringing together previously distributed solutions into one integrated approach.
