Accurate Risk, Delivered Quick.
If you use multiple systems to measure risks on physicals and derivative positions, or take a long time to compute risks on all your positions, RiskEdge can help. RiskEdge gives almost instantaneous results due to its hyper-threading capabilities even with Monte-Carlo Simulation method, and can be used to calculate risks on all your positions.
What Risks does RiskEdge Cover?
Market / Price Risks
Based on Value At Risk (VaR) Framework, RiskEdge gives clear visibility into Price Risks of each position and each portfolio, allowing users to take preventive action.
Counterparty / Credit Risks
RiskEdge uses PFE (Potential Future Exposure) to show Risks on open positions by each Counterparty, and on net and non-net basis. The model uses a unique MV-GBM based approach.
By passing all data through inteliigent business rules and securely storing it, RiskEdge eliminates a lot of operational risks, from bad data entry, to fraud-checks.
How RiskEdge measures Risk Differently?
In RiskEdge, you may choose to convert some of your Inventory into final product. It allows you to get more accurate Risks that your Portfolio WILL be exposed. You can even adjust exposures with business rules to merge or split, ignore or aggregate, a set of positions to enable you to get better visibility into business.

Reliability with Performance

What Instruments are Covered?
Physicals & Forwards
RiskEdge Covers all physical transactions, priced and unpriced contracts along with Contracts with Average / other Pricing methods.
Futures, Options & Swaps
RiskEdge does Valuations for Futures, Plain Vanilla Options and Swaps and also calculates Greeks and VaRs for them. Valuations can be turned off in case of exchange traded options / swaps.

Perspectives that provide Deeper Insights.
Commodity Perspective is most commonly used
RiskEdge allows you to view all your positions and portfolios by commodity at one place, with all its associated data, like P&L, VaR, Net Exposure, Expected Shortfall, etc. Product Heads can take risk mitigation decisions based on this information.
Profit Center / Business Unit Perspectives are more useful for individual Business Heads
This perspective allows Business Unit Heads to view the risks across all commodities within their Unit. The CEO / CRO will see the risks across all Business Units, and can accordingly ask Business Heads to liquidate / hedge positions.
