Kick - Off ceremony for “Basel II Standardized Solution” project for VIB
As one of the 10 banks selected by the State Bank of Vietnam to implement Basel II – a set of international banking regulations for capital adequacy, based on credit risk, market risk and operational risk, VIB has decided to choose HPT as the local partner to implement the “Basel II Standardized Solution” of BlackIce Enterprise Risk Management Inc, Canada. With this project launch, VIB expects to fully meet SBV’s requirements for Basel II Standardized capital by the end of 2015.

The Basel II Standardized Solution,called BlackIce ERA, implemented by HPT, is a compliant and working solution that is capable of integrating data in a logical manner from source systems, performing the necessary calculations and analytics and then populating reports required for Basel II as well as overall best practice risk management analytics. Hence, this is an open platform software application that not only delivers end-to-end data and analytical standards to meet all of the regulatory expectations of Basel II but also helps VIB to take advantage of advanced measurement approaches of Basel II.  

Applying Basel II is an important and positive step for VIB, which is also compliant with regulation of SBV with respect to risk management. The successfully implemented VIB - Basel II Standardized Solutionwill provide VIB with an international – standard best practice risk management framework. The project has strong and active support from VIB’s board of directors and is being implemented by an experienced senior team within VIB and HPT.
