QuIC’s Economic Capital Solution
We provide you with a system that protects against extreme circumstances.
The 2008 credit crisis highlighted the fact that many financial institutions were ill equipped to measure the true value of their portfolio across all asset classes. This challenge was, in part, due to inefficient and inaccurate risk-based capital measures, such as information and business ‘silos’. Fortunately QuIC’s Economic Capital Solution enables you to better capture extreme stress events by cutting down the time it takes to run sufficient simulations.
This solution gives you access to accurate, up-to-date and granular information concerning your capital requirements. This helps you to determine your business strategy across different assets and to enable adequate forward-looking capital projections under a range of scenarios. It also allows you to optimise and manage your economic and regulatory capital requirements.
Now you can perform data aggregation with flexible hierarchies for risk calculation results. These include marginal and incremental risk measures, such as expected shortfalls. It also allows you to drill down to scenario and transactional levels.
Scalable, innovative and fast
View your Economic Capital in its true light with our solution.
We know that there is no room in this industry for a ‘one size fits all approach’. That’s why it’s easy to make enhancements to QuIC’s Economic Capital Solution. This is in comparison with the ‘black box’ approach that many technology suppliers offer. We have designed this solution so that it can integrate with other down-stream applications. By doing so, it effectively extends the life of your existing market and credit risk applications.
The backbone of this solution is our QuIC Simulation Framework™. It allows you to breakdown portfolio calculations into sub-jobs. It also performs automated load balancing to maximise hardware utilisation, without sacrificing performance. In this way, nodes on a distributed system can be optimally used.
We know how valuable your time is. We can help you to spend it wisely. How? QuIC’s Economic Capital Solution typically reduces the time taken to calculate economic and regulatory capital from days to hours. This is because the solution relies on the extremely fast QuIC Engine™ to supply the power behind all of its computation. A 10-fold speed increase is normal and a 100-fold increase is common, allowing for intra-day simulations to be performed with ease.
