Market Risk

Consolidate and slice and dice enterprise market risk metrics in real-time.

RiskCubed is a fast track to managing market risk measures such as P&L, VaR and risk sensitivities offering immediate business benefits without the need for expensive, long drawn-out implementation projects. 

RiskCubed uses advanced cube technology to offer an ultra-fast, real-time analysis tool. Users access the cube through a familiar and easy-to-use Excel front end or a web-based cube navigator. Using pivots and charts, reports and graphing can be easily displayed, with a variety of breakdown criteria and multiple drilldown possibilities.

Value at Risk (VaR) simulation engine

VaR simulation provides greater accuracy in risk metrics with the ability to aggregate calculations across several commodities to achieve a single VaR figure and jointly model multiple commodities to observe correlations between price changes. The risk framework enables:

  • Portfolio level Greeks & Sensitivities.
  • Stress testing on contract portfolios.
  • Single and multi-factor models for accurate simulation of risk factors.
  • Calibration capabilities to customise calculations, e.g. by adjusting volatilities and correlations.

Single risk engine drives front office, credit risk and market risk with advanced analytics to simulate spot and forward prices, calculate M2M, VaR and other metrics. Quants can integrate proprietary modelling within the platform alongside the extensive native capabilities.

Elimination of manual processes and the audibility, application integrity and documentation expected of enterprise level software enables staff to add more value to the business.
