RISK ANALYTICS

INTEREST RATES • FX • COMMODITIES • INFLATION
Visual Risk™ are risk management experts. Our solution enables risk managers to easily analyse complex data and then design superior risk mitigation strategies. At the core of our Risk Analytics module is the ability to process, analyse, interpret and display data via a unique reporting dashboard. It quantifies market risk sensitivities within your underlying positions and allows you to dynamically analyse and stress test both existing portfolios and potential ‘what if’ hedging strategies and exposures. Visual Risk empowers risk managers to make better informed decisions.
