Wolters Kluwer Financial Services has announced that it has acquired Financial Tools Inc., the provider of CASH Suite—an enterprise-wide financial analysis and credit risk management solution for U.S. commercial lenders. The addition of Financial Tools enables Wolters Kluwer Financial Services to provide U.S. community and regional banks and credit unions with the ability to manage financial performance and grow profitability with straight through processing across their commercial loan origination, servicing and regulatory reporting processes. Together, the two companies will build upon their shared commercial lending and risk management expertise to help financial institutions accelerate commercial loan origination, increase efficiency in loan servicing and achieve regulatory compliance. Commercial lending has emerged as one of the few business areas in which financial institutions can grow revenue profitably in today’s marketplace. In the past two years, commercial loans held by FDIC-insured financial institutions increased by $330 billion. However, taking advantage of this opportunity presents institutions with numerous challenges, including higher transaction volumes and narrower margins, fewer in-house resources and intensified regulatory scrutiny. “The addition of Financial Tools enables us to offer commercial lenders the comprehensive solutions they need to drive commercial lending growth,” said Brian Longe, CEO for Wolters Kluwer’s Financial & Compliance Services division. “With access to the critical data they need, when they need it, lenders can improve performance with straight through processing and more effectively manage risk at the transactional level. And we’ll help them use that same data to obtain enterprise-level views of their customer bases and businesses thereby enhancing long-term profitability.” More than 600 U.S. banks and credit unions utilize Financial Tools’ CASH Suite. These solutions enable institutions to automate and streamline tasks like business development, financial analysis, risk management and pricing, credit communications and approvals, covenant compliance tracking, portfolio management, stress testing and in-depth reporting. Wolters Kluwer Financial Services’ proficient origination and workflow capabilities and built-in compliance content in the ComplianceOne loan and deposit origination solution will be fully-integrated with the comprehensive commercial lending capabilities of CASH Suite. “Joining Wolters Kluwer Financial Services means that our customers will have access to a broader array of risk management and business workflow solutions,” said Dave Kampff, president and CEO of Financial Tools. “Together, we’ll be able to meet the complex, changing needs of commercial lenders now and as their organizations grow.”
