August 09, 2011 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream Inc., the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced that the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago (FHLB Chicago) has gone live with MetricStream solutions for Compliance, Audits and Issue Management. The implementation is part of FHLB Chicago’s initiative to integrate and streamline GRC processes across the enterprise using the MetricStream GRC Platform.
The FHLB Chicago is one of 12 district banks chartered by the US Congress to provide low-cost, short and long-term funding to financial institutions in Illinois and Wisconsin. The bank is committed to providing a stable source of funding for its customers. One of the ways it does this is through effective GRC management. However, aligning individual GRC processes proved to be a challenge.
The Bank has gone live with MetricStream solutions for SOX compliance, audits and issue management. It is currently implementing MetricStream risk management solution, and is also looking to adopt MetricStream’s solution for continuous control monitoring.
“We are excited to work with a trusted name in banking as is FHLB Chicago,” says Gaurav Kapoor, Chief Operating Officer at MetricStream. “Over the last few years, MetricStream has built long-lasting engagements with several financial institutions including Central Banks, Federal Financial Agencies, Asset Management firms, Retail Banks, Broker-Dealer firms, Investment Banks, Stock Exchanges and Clearing Corporations. These institutions rely on MetricStream to strengthen their GRC processes and drive value for their organization.”
