Kyriba provides an extensive risk management solution supporting Treasurers and CFOs.
Financial Risk Management - Kyriba supports a complete workflow of pre-trade, trade, and post-trade capabilities for Foreign Exchange and Interest Rate Risk Management.
FX Exposure Management: Kyriba’s FX Position Worksheet allows users to analyze compliance with internal hedging policies driven by sophisticated tracking of currency exposures and FX transactions. Exposures can be imported from the ERP and/or other internal systems and can be netted to determine aggregated currency exposures.
Mark-to-Market Valuations: Kyriba users can compute the independent market value of all financial instruments tracked in the system, including FX, Interest Rate Derivatives, and Debt. Valuations are calculated based on the Kyriba Market Data Service (included with the system) or from source data imported from external providers.
Hedge Effectiveness Testing: Kyriba added Prospective and Retrospective Hedge Effectiveness Testing, as part of a new module, focuses on helping clients comply with Hedge Accounting standards in the US and globally. Kyriba supports Dollar-Offset, Volatility Reduction, and Linear Regression, so that users have flexibility in testing methods and hedge documentation to meet their auditors’ requirements.
Sensitivity Analysis: Kyriba supports modification of currency and interest rate curves so that users can analyze the sensitivity of different FX and Interest Rate projections, including parallel and variable yield curve shifts. Multiple scenarios can be applied allowing many valuations to be analyzed per financial transaction.
Counterparty Risk Management is one of the top two priorities cited by Global Treasurers. Kyriba helps identify and mitigate counterparty risks in both financial positions, as well as in the supply chain.
Counterparty Exposure Reporting: Kyriba clients can also manage their overall financial relationships with banks and counterparties by tracking all transactions, including trades, credit availability, and bank activity. Treasuries can report on exposures, deals, and activity by counterparty, or compare across all counterparties.
Deal Limit Monitoring and Enforcement: Kyriba offers full counterparty and internal limit management for all financial transactions. Users can structure limits by counterparty, deal type, rating, and other criteria to ensure that internal trading policies are effectively managed. Limits can either prevent deals from being completed, or serve as a warning.
Supply Chain Finance: Through the use of Kyriba’s Supply Chain Finance portal, Buyers can reduce the risks of liquidity issues within their supply chain through the early payment of supplier invoices and consequent improvement to a supplier’s working capital and liquidity position. For suppliers, access to cash at reasonable financing rates can significantly reduce the likelihood of full or partial default, helping mitigate potential disruption due to lack of liquidity.
Liquidity Risk Management - Global Treasurers rate Liquidity Risk as the #1 or #2 (behind Counterparty Risk) risk management priority for their organization. Kyriba provides strategic capabilities to help Treasurers mitigate liquidity risk:
Cash Visibility: Gathering a consolidated and instantaneous view of cash across the organization is a necessary building block to minimizing the risk of potential cash deficits. Kyriba, as the global leader in SWIFTNet implementations, is the leading authority in global cash visibility for any bank, in any geography.
Liquidity Management: Adding to the view of global cash, Treasurers must have a clear view of liquid investments, borrowing availability, and working capital improvements, such as extending payment terms. Kyriba’s Liquidity Worksheet consolidates this information in one view for a real-time picture of corporate liquidity. In addition, Kyriba’s Supply Chain Finance module offers opportunities to take advantage of improved payment terms to suppliers while not negatively impacting the supply chain.
Cash Forecast: Kyriba offers full integration with internal systems and sources to ensure that Treasurers have a complete, enterprise-wide corporate cash forecast. The key to successful forecasting is to ensure complete visibility into anticipated cash events as well as dynamically calculating forecast accuracy so that best practices are implemented and re-implemented on a consistent basis. Kyriba allows Treasurers to achieve confidence in their cash forecasting so that financial decisions can be proactively made.
Operational Risk Management - Through the use of Kyriba, corporate treasuries are better protected from the risk of operational breakdown due to ineffective controls, insufficient separation of duties, or inadequate disaster avoidance and recovery.
Financial Controls: Kyriba offers extensive controls and audit trails minimizing errors, protecting core data (e.g. bank reporting), and tracking touch points on all treasury data. Auditors favor Kyriba’s automated and structured workflow especially when compared to spreadsheets and manual processes.
Separation of Duties: Kyriba provides segregation of user access and privileges throughout the treasury workflow to ensure that only authorized individuals have access to information and can initiate and/or approve transactions (Payments is an excellent example). Clients determine levels of access and approval and implement across their organization, including for remote users where introducing controls and duties is especially important.
Disaster Avoidance and Recovery: Kyriba’s 100% cloud solution is supported by best-in-class IT infrastructure and processes to ensure that our clients can minimize disruptions due to internal or geographic events. Kyriba offers the highest committed uptime in the industry and delivers the best disaster recovery metrics of any provider. If business continuity is a priority for your organization, Kyriba is your best option.
