RiskMonitor® Product Description
RiskMonitor®’s patented new portfolio decision support module allows investment portfolio managers to not only optimize the risk/return characteristics of their portfolios, but to also gauge the portfolio and positions’ return performance expectations around benchmark return experience.
RiskMonitor® configures quickly, intuitively and securely to operate within each client’s policy and operational requirements, from data gap/error resolution to method hierarchies to results/alerts routing, plus fail/restore procedures.
RiskMonitor® provides multidimensional analysis capability via disaggregation of a whole portfolio risks and exposures into those of its components to the lowest level of granularity of position and risk factor.
RiskMonitor® employs a vast array of intuitive interfaces. Each screen is equipped with filters and viewing management tools that enable pages to be viewed according each user’s preference, and then bookmarked for convenient continuous access.
For Credit Risk, RiskMonitor® calculates current and potential future net and gross exposures, based on user-defined parameters and flexible term structures, which may be specified for all instruments within the firm along any user-defined portfolio dimensions and drill down paths.
RiskMonitor® includes the capability for handling aggregations based upon various netting agreements, collateral and guarantees.
Credit Ratings, default and recovery statistics can be incorporated to measure expected and “confidence level” credit losses to produce Unexpected Credit losses and Economic Credit Capital measures.
RiskMonitor® includes a Utility toolkit for the configuration, automated calculation and storage of user-defined yield curves and options volatility grids that can be used for position revaluations and risk measures for clients who don’t have a source of risk factor time series, such as zero coupon yield curves and implied volatility surfaces.
RiskMonitor® includes a powerful Risk Limit Control sub-system, which allows the user to set limits on any measures (market and credit risk exposures, positions, market values, etc). Limits can be set up to monitor risks by book, trader, country, counterparty, business line, product, or other user-defined criteria.
Our Risk Limit Control Subsystem alerts users before limits are reached. The capacity to drill down through multiple levels of limits allows you to thoroughly examine your data down to the transactional or position level, and to quickly pinpoint the source of limit usage.
RiskMonitor® provides functional support for the measurement of initial and maintenance margin calculations and downstream reporting and work flow for individual transactions, portfolios using VAR and TIMMS methodologies and transaction clusters for “Strategies”.
Management and Regulatory reporting is an inherent part of the system’s functionality. The on-line reporting
facility creates complete reports (standard or customized) whether on-screen or hard-copy formats at any level
RiskMonitor® is database-independent and operates on virtually any platform including Unix, Linux and Windows.
