Market and Credit Risk

Market and Credit Risk

The spectre of counterparty default and capital shortfalls still haunts the markets. Application monitoring for market and credit risk is essential to the health of any financial institution - and a key requirement for any compliance regime.

Creating a consolidated view of total exposures and total risks is crucial but challenging. Data resides in multiple systems, applications and networks; in formal data storage and less formal transaction records.

What happens in one area of the business can have profound consequences for another. Risk data is dynamic, interdependent and constantly changing, making it even harder to calculate exposure, manage collateral and stay within defined risk parameters.

ITRS Geneos keeps risk management systems running at peak performance and maintains your good name in the market.
