London / Immenstaad, 8 September 2020 – ACTICO, a leading international software provider for credit and risk management software, today announced that Santander UK, one of UK’s largest banks, successfully implemented the ACTICO Credit Risk Management Platform to manage and execute the Bank’s portfolio of commercial risk rating models on a new centralized system.

Santander UK is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Banco Santander. Partnering with several financial technology (FinTech) firms, the Bank has started a multi-year transformation program to implement an end-to-end customer onboarding, credit risk and fulfillment solution. Recently, the Bank’s program has been awarded with the prestigious Financial Innovation Award for the “Most effective overall customer experience initiative – Business & corporate”.

We were looking for a robust and centralized platform to manage our internal rating models”, said James Berrecloth at Santander UK. “The rating models had to be closely integrated with our new cloud-based bank operating system, to deliver an effective end-to-end digital user experience. Additionally, the platform and the models it hosted had to be flexible enough to be easily adapted by the bank’s risk methodology teams, while ensuring regulatory compliance at any point in the process.”

Christine Moosherr, General Manager at ACTICO added, “We are extremely excited to work with one of UK’s largest banks, and support the implementation of an innovative digital platform for commercial lending. Going live with the new integrated platform, Santander UK is able to digitalize its key processes and deliver excellent customer experience.”

Santander UK joins a growing number of Santander Group entities that leverage ACTICO’s credit risk management solutions for both, its consumer finance and commercial banking sectors.
