Few examples EY LIC Solution® flexibility

  • Individual assessment

    • Configuration of automatic selection and de-selection criteria for Individual Assessment
    • Configuration of traffic lights indicating the need for re-assessment
    • Definition of work flow (roles & rules) in Individual Assessment, e.g. Inputter, Reviewer, Approver
  • Multiple probability weighted collective scenarios and Sensitivity analysis

    • Performing calculation runs with different parameter’s forward looking calibrations allows to weight them into the multiple probability weighted scenario ECL calculation
    • Calculating runs with different parameter’s configuration supports the sensitivity analysis as well as the specific ECL calculations for Stress Testing purposes
  • Segmentation and staging

    IFRS9 staging criteria can reflect institution specific and asset portfolio-specific Days Past Due thresholds, Significant Increase in Credit Risk since origination with editable thresholds for rating grade deterioration or lifetime PD deterioration or 12-month PD deterioration, various risk flags and customized handling of special cases like a missing risk assessment at origination or assets still recorded on balance after their contractual maturity

  • IFRS 9 ECL calculation approach options

    • Several alternative ECL calculation formulas for the Collective assessment method and approaches for special classes of assets like POCI and IFRS 9 Simplified Approach for receivables
    • Multiple risk parameter’s calculation options for PD, LGD, EAD, Prepayments and Forward Looking Adjustments
  • EY LIC Solution® stands out from other solutions

    The audit log function allows us to differentiate from immature Excel based solutions:

    • The LIC Solution® supports Active Directory authentication of users. It enables a seamless single-sign-on user experience and centrally managed access rights within the institution.
    • Permissions for roles are set by selecting them from the list of atomic permissions (e.g. view permission for particular screens, data modification permissions).
    • General auditing functionality – tracking all user and administrator actions in the solution.
    • Audit reports – visualize/look up the user’s activity data.

    The flexible configuration of calculation and assessment approaches makes the solution quick and easy to deploy while reflecting the specifics and the data availability of each portfolio of the institution’s assets.
