zeb.control.strategy - Future Grip

A volatile market environment, increased competition and new regulatory requirements have led to an adjusted internal management logic. Changed framework conditions—such as stricter regulatory requirements regarding capital, leverage ratio and liquidity—mean that transparency about essential management measures will increasingly become a critical factor for the success of banks. A comprehensive illustration of interdependen-cies between balance sheet structure, P&L, central management parameters and regulatory restrictions is indispensable for target-oriented and robust business segment planning. This integrated view is the only way to derive substantial strategic decisions in the current banking environment.


Total bank simulation uses an integrated simulation of all relevant target values to support strategic decision making based on assumptions about the economic and regulatory environment. They cover, among others, return on equity, cost-income ratio, growth measures for profit and balance sheet and also regulatory measures, such as Tier 1 ratio, leverage ratio, Basel II interest risk coefficient and the Basel III liquidity measures liquidity coverage ratio and net stable funding ratio, and can be enhanced with individual management measures as required. A frequently possible extension of the original management systems ensures a standardized and quick preparation of data for simulation purposes.

Main features

  • Comprehensive impact analysis of all relevant management parameters of the bank
  • Integrated simulation and planning of balance sheet, P&L, capital and availability of liquid re-sources for mapping dependencies and impact directions
  • Aggregation of all target entries to total bank measures (e.g. target CIR on total bank)
  • High flexibility and scalability regarding data connection, portfolio granularity and report design
  • Planning of strategic targets for operational planning via ROI trees
