We are delighted to see the MX.3 platform is being used by Banorte for its XVA desk,” said Jean Carrer, director of Murex Latin America business development. “It strengthens our partnership, paves the way to additional systems replacement and highlights Murex’s position as the leading technology vendor in the credit risk and XVA space in Latin America.”

“At Banorte, we successfully implemented the Murex PFE solution to enhance the analytical credit risk solution we had been using for many years with Murex and deploy more modern credit limit management metrics,” said Abraham M. Izquierdo, FRM: Executive Director, Risk, at Grupo Financiero Banorte. “This rollout of PFE was made possible thanks to our partnership with Murex and its Upgrade as a Service. Within 24 months, we upgraded twice and brought many new functions to our business: collateral, equity desk opening, LIBOR reform, and, of course, PFE and XVA. Murex’s ownership of this process allowed Banorte to focus on our own complete internal operating overhaul for setting up a dedicated XVA desk."
