Maintainable, transparent models replace in-house development based on Excel-VBA
Thetaris, a world-leading provider of modeling solutions for the financial sector, releases Theta Suite Portfolio Market Risk Management. This novel risk management software solution offers asset managers and small to medium sized insurance companies the flexibility and performance which so far has only been achieved with applications tailored to major financial institutions.
Users are able to comply with international and local regulations for risk management without being overstrained by the complexity, the development and administration efforts as well as software spending. The tool replaces in-house Excel-VBA-solutions and is ideal for small work groups. Models built with Theta Suite Portfolio Market Risk Management are fully customizable in line with individual requirements, yet still easily maintainable and transparent and thus less prone to mistakes. The solution is easy to learn and use: So if a risk manager should leave the company, the successor can smoothly carry on the work of his predecessor - valuable knowledge is retained in-house.
Risk management is a growing challenge with regard to regulation activities, especially for asset managers and smaller insurance companies. Since the financial crisis investors, customers and the public have become more sceptical, which puts even more pressure on financial service providers. A successful risk management is crucial with respect to competitive advantage; weak spots in the portfolio or in particular products must be avoided. At the same time especially smaller financial service providers need customizable, scalable solutions and approaches to compete in this highly contested market for insurance and financial products.
