DECIDE Credit Risk

Predictive risk assessment and active exposure management

DECIDE RISK is your reliable early warning system when risks unexpectedly concentrate. The system also takes into account factors such as the development of different counterparty and issuer credit metrics. You manage the risk profile within this framework without having to restrict your trading activities in any way.

DECIDE RISK’s modular building block system minimizes the effort needed to compile risk aggregations and limits. Exposures from various sources can be recorded and aggregated using different accounting approaches.

DECIDE RISK provides an information base which enables you to make the right decisions at an early stage to secure essential competitive advantages.

Options for sound management of risk profiles

  • Company-wide management of credit risk in realtime
    The realtime presentation of company-wide credit risks and exposures in an aggregated view enables you to make the necessary decisions at an early stage and to initiate required actions in a timely manner.
  • Manage limits actively
    Respond directly to limit violations and identify risk concentrations in time with the corresponding time profile of the expected limit utilization. Actively manage these profiles by initiating the necessary actions.
  • Regulatory requirements – always up to date
    DECIDE RISK is continuously adapted to regulatory requirements, e.g., MiFID II, BCBS 239, FFRTB, SA-CRR.

Identify risks early and reliably

Clear display of credit risks

DECIDE RISK bundles all credit risks with issuers, counterparties, and depositaries and allows you to immediately identify where essential actions are necessary. Depending on the individual case, exposures to counterparty and replacement risks arising from OTC transactions are composed of a basket of credit type calculations, which may include market value, book value, profit & loss, VaR, CVaR (Gordy), and expected shortfalls.

Consistent handling of credit risks

The address risk process is carried out by DECIDE RISK in accordance with CRR/CRD IV. Risk-weighted assets are calculated using the KSA and IRB approach. By reviewing funds in accordance with Cash Reserve Requirement Ratio/the German Large Loans Directive, you can monitor large loan exposure limits in realtime and account for them in the regulatory reporting system.

Ensure transparency in depth

Drill-downs of arbitrary granularity ensure transparency at all levels. If necessary, risk contributions can be broken down to the transaction level.

Selectively manage liquidity

By using LCR/NFSR aggregation and predictions assuming specific scenarios, you ensure that your liquidity management is on a very solid footing.
