Complete set of absolute risk metrics at portfolio and single asset level
- Absolute Risk metrics, such as: VaR, expected shortfall, potential gain, expected upside, expected Volatility available at single asset and portfolio level
Complete set of relative risk metrics Vs benchmark or liabilities at portfolio and single asset level
- Relative Risk metrics against benchmark, such as: relative VaR, relative expected shortfall, relative potential gain, relative expected upside, expected tracking error available at single asset and portfolio level
- Capacity to create portfolios of liabilities with support of inflation capitalization
- Comprehensive sensitivity analysis provides insights on hedging effectiveness
Wide array of absolute relative stress tests offering three different methodologies
- Historical scenarios re-price your portfolios after the underlying risk factors are shocked by the scenario’s historical changes
- User-defined stress tests let the user input the shocks to the underlying risk factors and simulate the impact on portfolio P&L accordingly
- Innovative predictive stress test scenarios based on Kalman Filter, helps you understand the local structure of correlation to provide a more accurate assessment of your expected portfolio P&L if a certain risk factor is shocked by a user-defined amount
Risk simulation framework, on demand stress testing and sensitivity analysis
- Create risk simulations based on changes or exclusions to individual holdings or sector weights
- Dedicated stress test dashboard showing absolute and relative impacts on the portfolio at return and monetary levels
- Dedicated sensitivity analysis dashboard showing impacts of pre-determined factors such as interest rates, credit, inflation and FX rates
RISK LIMITS AND COMMITMENT LEVERAGE MONITORING
Regulations are putting increasing pressure on asset managers in the field of portfolio compliance monitoring. One of the most important events in the regulatory landscape has been the implementation of the AIFM Directive in 2014. StatPro’s risk limits and commitment leverage monitoring calculates the commitment exposure of a portfolio, satisfying the complex rules designed for derivative instruments, including pre-defined UCITS and AIFMD (Annex IV) reports.

Risk analysis is hard, and the tools you use shouldn’t make it more difficult. In fact, they should make it simple. That’s why StatPro Revolution Alpha is always improving our already intuitive and user-friendly web interface. Our PDF reports are ‘board quality’ so important results stand out clearly. We aim to make risk simple.
We have other risk tools too:
QuantLib is the most successful open source project for quantitative finance in the world. Created by StatPro, it provides financial pricing libraries and tools for building bond pricing functions. Our risk management solution and complex assets pricing, have been built around QuantLib.
“In the past clients have contacted us because they wanted to use QuantLib but their IT policy did not permit the use of open source software in production platforms. They needed a "certified" version, free of mal-ware and guaranteed by a professional operator. But they also wanted our support and integration expertise…” says an IT person from StatPro
“Following this market need, StatPro now offers an adapted version of QuantLib, modified in order to meet client requirements.
QuantLib Squared offers more than 250 pricing functions. These have been created using QuantLib and give you access to a complete universe of pricing functions for risk assessment covering every asset class from equity, interest rate-linked products to mortgage-backed securities.
