Lacking Effective Risk Analytics?

QR Risk™ helps you overcome all risk analytics shortcomings:

  • Cost-effective robust and no overhead risk solutions that actually work.

  • One single integrated holistic risk platform. Define custom performance and risk indicators for your business. Use standard indicators: trading, financial, treasury, credit, ALM, cash flow (CFaR) and earnings (EaR). Scenarios, forecasting, planning. Monte Carlo simulation and stochastic risk.

  • Supercomputing performance. Eliminate performance issues. Compress computational time and memory.

Overcome ERP's shortcomings:

  • In-memory analytics advocated by some ERPs lead to costly custom developments and myriads of instabilities and limitations.

  • In-memory analytics can’t be effective as they mix data, modeling and computational tiers, and force you into one-off custom sequel and mathematical script coding by expensive consultants. Models created in such mixed-scripts can’t be tested independently nor maintained outside your implementation. You can’t use pre-existing industry standard analytics libraries or high level languages. These have to be executed externally and results uploaded.

  • There are limitations in table size and rows in-memory. It is naive to subject complex analytics to such limitations. E.g., the following exceed in-memory analytics capacity: directed Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Monte Carlo simulation, evolutionary and nonlinear optimization.

  • No automated plug & play advanced analytics. Defining integrated scenario, risk and optimization models exceed in-memory capacity and would require extensive custom development to begin with.

Real-time Visibility & Reporting

  • Real-time visibility into data at multiple levels and granular details. The data is organized in flexible web-reports displayed in a browser. Reports offer tabular and graphic display of data.

  • Data and output of reports can be exported to any external system or database and in Excel and PDF formats. Exports can be automated or manually initiated.

  • Reports can have complex business logics and integrate data from multiple resources, systems and timescales. Mission critical data can be aggregated in live web-panels projected in flat screen monitors and refreshed live to disseminate information in real-time. E.g., positions, P&L, gross margin, key financial and operational data, per business units (production, processing, manufacturing, plants, and storage), commodity or production types and trading books. In one glance, executives, managers and operators or traders can see full details before decision-making.

  • Analysis, visibility and reporting flows through time to provide the most complete picture. Previous months, quarters and years analysis and reporting use actual finalized data. Month to day reporting uses on-going realized data. Analysis and reporting from today to months, quarters and years forward use forecast data.

  • Drill-down to granular levels or roll up to aggregate data and positions.

Process Automation & Increased Performance

QR Systems can be easily configured to create and automate the execution of complex interlinked chains of tasks.

  • Users benefit from a user-friendly interface to create chains of interlinked actions and tasks. A task labeled master triggers dependent tasks upon its execution as a cascade. E.g., if the master task fetches data, the first dependent task invokes the execution of a pre-defined analytics model for this data, which has its own sub dependent tasks that use different valuations. When each dependent task is finished, various reports are generated. This entire chain is automatically launched when the master task is executed.

  • Execution can be event driven, e.g., a master task automatically triggers its dependent tasks. It can be also set on a timer or on recurring schedules.

  • At each juncture, appropriate memos or notifications can be generated and submitted via email to the appropriate internal or external users.

  • QR allows its users to create customized dashboards in order to integrate and automate the workflow of complex operations and business processing that would normally require manual intervention or multiple different systems. These dashboards can automatically interface with outside systems, operators, authorities and exchanges to carry bi-directional submission and retrieval of various data, orders and schedules.

Optimization of Operations & Resource Allocation

Define and optimize custom indicators to fit your operations, assets or logistics. Maximize desirable and minimize undesirable indicators, subject to operational, financial, internal and regulatory constraints.

Optimal decisions, positions and operational levels can be used real-time for short-term tactical decision-making, such as operate, lower or ramp up a given operation, plant, storage or transportation process; or strategically over longer forecast horizons for planning, asset valuation, investment, operational realignment and risk management.

Indicators used as optimization objective need not be financial, e.g.:

  • A school district may wish to maximize student or staff retention, graduation rates, performance or testing scores.

  • A hospital may wish to optimize its human, technology, procedures and operational resources to maximize services for a given demographic or regional patient pools.

  • Any industry, organization and agency wishes to optimize its supply chain. Minimize costs, losses, fees, overhead, delays. Maximize productivity and performance by re-organizing assets, methods, technology and operations.

Optimization can run backwards in time for performance analysis to compare actual versus hypothetical possible optimal scenarios in the past. Run what-if-scenarios to fine tune strategies.

Adding Risk Management to Your In-house Systems

QR Risk Management System’s scalable architecture allows for immediate integration, right out-of-the-box, with any segment of your existing IT infrastructure and internal systems.

You may want to keep using your existing in-house systems if you are satisfied with them. We bootstrap our risk system around these.

  • Your systems can be financial, trading, investment, funds, assets and liability, hedging, transaction, valuation, settlement, corporate planning, treasury and cash management systems. Alternatively, your systems are operational and manage complex activities and operations in your industry and line of business.

  • Your systems evaluate a host of key operational and financial indicators, e.g., value, NPV, mark-to-market, P&L, exposure etc. However, these systems lack any concept of volatility or risk. They compute one output for one set of input.

  • Risk via volatility: We Monte Carlo simulate thousands of correlated scenarios for volatile input curves such as prices, volumes, interest rates, FX, operational rates, etc. We then push these through your systems for valuation, one scenario at a time. Then QR Risk collects the corresponding thousand outputs and bins them to create distributions for each desired indicators from which the mean or average, best and worst case risk tails or VaR are automatically computed. The valuation created with your in-house systems are used as the mean or average values of risk simulation. In other words, the projected world forward matches on the average your systems output, around which we introduced volatility and risk.

  • Risk via scenario analysis: similarly as above, we can define multiple stresses and what-if-scenarios as input to your in-house systems, push them through, collect the outputs, and analyze them in our portfolio scenario module.

Financial Risk Management

QR Risk System computes by default the following financial risk indicators via full Monte Carlo simulations:

  • Market risk, mark-to-market, ALM, hedging and value at risk.

  • Corporate & treasury earnings, cash, P&L, liquidity and regulatory risk.

  • Counterparty exposure, default and credit risk.

All asset classes, markets and instruments are handled. Energy, commodity, FX, fixed income, money markets, equity, indices, mutual funds, structured products, etc. Spot, forwards, futures, indices, options and derivatives, fixed-price, floats, OTC, etc.

Performing Risk Management in QR Systems

  • QuantRisk offers a flexible API to connect to your various systems, databases and data repositories to continually gather your operational and financial data. Regardless of how data were initially captured or organized in your in-house systems, QR Risk system allows you to reorganize them by any associations or nested portfolio structures based on any attribute you desire. These can be by business objectives, asset or underlying commodity types, operational groups or units, income statement levels, supply or demand chains, AR or AP, assets and liability segments, etc.

  • Out of the same set of data, multiple portfolios can be created to undergo different risk valuations from different perspectives, purposes and indicators.

  • Risk via volatility: We Monte Carlo simulate thousands of correlated scenarios for volatile input curves such as prices, volumes, interest rates, FX, operational data, etc. to create distributions for each desired indicators from which the mean, best and worst case risk tails or VaR are automatically computed at 98 percentile.

  • Risk via scenario analysis: Define multiple stresses and what-if-scenarios to evaluate the indicators of interests to answer questions such as what-if prices, costs, volumes, load, consumers, congestions, age groups go up or down by 10%, 15%, etc. On the other hand, what if some assets are allocated differently or re-invested differently.
