Run credit risk calculations on large portfolios with accuracy and speed
Evolving regulatory requirements are driving demand for greater scrutiny of risk. As banks adapt to new supervisory regimes, they are searching for ways to mitigate their capital requirements and contain the costs arising from changes to IT infrastructure and operating models.
IHS Markit’s Risk and Regulatory Capital Solution helps banks find their optimal business strategy by supporting cost, risk-weighted asset (RWA) and balance sheet rationalization, as well as model approval and pre-trade decisions.
Risk management professionals can run portfolio credit risk calculations on large global portfolios of complex instruments with accuracy and speed. They can access an extensive range of credit risk simulations, pricing and aggregation models, and use a flexible modeling environment to create or customize pricing and simulation models.
By leveraging supercomputing concepts, such as the vectorization of calculations, the solution can run contingent credit pricing, PFE and EPE calculations simultaneously at high speed. Fast access to capital calculation results allows you to make better-informed decisions.
Cutting-edge technology stack – Leverage an open, extensible platform that uses best-of-breed components. IHS Markit uses industry-leading distributed processing and application technologies, including a subset of the Apache big data technology stack, to underpin the Risk and Regulatory Capital Solution. Deploy the solution using the implementation model that best suits your firm, including hosted, managed service and on-premises installations.
Flexibility – Edit and create new models to align with changing regulatory/business requirements and implement batch or real-time mode for intraday calculations. A powerful stress test language lets you create custom scenario analysis, run sensitivities, assess wrong-way risk and back-test exposure profiles.
Regulatory track record – Use the solution to support the regulatory Internal Model Method approval and to help gain significant savings on your capital requirements
Extensive coverage – Benefit from coverage of vanilla and exotic instruments across asset classes, including interest rates, inflation, foreign exchange, equity, commodities and credit
