Liquidity Data Oversight Framework

Risk Data


Fortune 500 Financial Services Institution


Risk Governance, Regulatory Program Compliance, Data Management & Governance

Project Overview

In response to Federal Reserve requirements, the Client initiated a series of efforts to address liquidity data quality issues related to regulatory and management liquidity reporting and enhance their liquidity risk reporting. Faced with an environment of siloed and inefficient liquidity data management activities further complicated by a challenging employment market, the Client sought to implement a sustainable liquidity risk governance framework to address compliance and controls issues within Treasury’s 1st Line Risk Team. The Client sought expertise, planning, and delivery support from Reference Point to help meet their tight deadlines and provide recommendations directly to the Treasurer and CFO for augmenting liquidity management at the firm.


  • Reference Point deployed a team of subject matter experts and experienced consultants, with targeted expertise in liquidity risk management and reporting, to lead the development of a Liquidity Data Oversight Framework and identify opportunities to enhance the enterprise’s liquidity data management practices.
  • The team developed a detailed Liquidity Data Oversight Framework document encapsulating the overarching standards and practices utilized for liquidity risk data in alignment with the enterprise data management program and all action plans necessary for regulatory response, including Governance, Data Management, Quality and Controls, and Reporting activities.
  • RP also conducted a high-level gap assessment of the firm’s current framework against regulatory requirements and utilized a proprietary risk rating methodology to inform executive observations and recommendations for the firm.


  • The Liquidity Data Oversight Framework (LDOF) articulates how liquidity data is governed and managed on an integrated, end-to-end basis, ensuring improved quality, integrity, and sustainability of liquidity risk data.
  • The risk and governance focused LDOF was the first use case of its kind across the enterprise and served as a foundation for future data management improvement efforts outside of Treasury, offering a replicable model for assessing data management and applying recommended practices for managing and securing data assets.
  • Through the creation of the Liquidity Data Oversight Framework and socialization of Data Governance and Data Management practices, the client also bolstered its change management processes while evolving culture to become more data-driven and encourage escalation of data issues.
