Following a competitive evaluation process, the British Business Bank has selected Xactium Risk Management to replace its current spreadsheet model.

The British Business Bank is a government-owned business development bank dedicated to making finance markets work better for smaller businesses in the UK at all stages of their development: starting up, scaling up and staying ahead.

Xactium will enable the Bank to see a real-time view of its risks and the flexibility of the system will allow it to implement modifications directly, as the business develops.

Mark Gray, Chief Risk Officer at British Business Bank, explains: “We will be using the features and capabilities of the Risk Manager platform to transform the way we manage risk across our organisation. We expect its user-friendly platform will enable us to focus more time on managing risk and less time on collecting and manipulating data.”

Andy Evans, Managing Director, Xactium says: “I am delighted that the British Business Bank has chosen to work with us and I am looking forward to working with them to configure a risk management system that they can roll out to the business with confidence”
