RISKVIEW™ is a flexible, web-based risk management dashboard which improves market risk visibility, and enables informed and collaborative risk management decision-making. Combining market data with powerful risk analytics and derivative pricing capability, RISKVIEW™ provides a 360° picture of market risk, including exposures, outstanding and proposed hedges and valuations, and configurable risk key performance indicators (KPIs).
Standard risk metrics, including stress testing, sensitivity analysis and at-risk analysis (Cash Flow at Risk, Value at Risk, and Earnings at Risk) are supplemented by customized measures, such as the probability of achieving internal costing or budget levels, or maintaining debt covenant targets. Hedging proposals can be tested prior to execution to graphically demonstrate the impact on risk management metrics, improving the hedging selection process.
RISKVIEW™ is fully compatible with Excel, ensuring that data and risk metrics can be easily updated. Designed to facilitate collaboration between hedging advisors and clients, RISKVIEW™’s multi-location capability ensures that risk management analysis and reporting can be shared internally and externally, minimizing operational risk and improving the communication and transparency of hedging decisions.
