DECIDE Risk Management

Track position risks in realtime, ensure transparency in risk components and
regulatory conformity, reduce operating costs

Clearly identify risk and risk drivers, systematically manage vertical and horizontal risk aggregations, aggregate exposures and monitor them in realtime: success in the active trading environment increasingly depends on how comprehensive and forward-looking you can be in designing your risk management – and this is where your choice of solution and IT architecture plays an increasingly important role.

Comprehensive and integrated risk management depends on being prepared for the current and new challenges of the market and its ever-stricter regulations and on being able to respond proactively. The following requirements are the basis for sustainable success.

  • Is it possible to achieve maximum flexibility and performance within the given IT architectures and structures, as today’s risk-relevant processes require?
  • Can risk management applications be easily integrated into existing system and process environments?
  • Can the risk management application be scaled and parameterized so that each use case can be mapped with the appropriate methodological complexity?

The DECIDE RISK end-to-end system solution gives you one answer to all your questions - an unrestricted "yes". DECIDE RISK is a multi-client-capable, powerful and multi-purpose risk management software platform.

Key Characteristics


Your long-term success and positioning in the market is founded on proactive companywide risk management in realtime, which enables you to minimize exposure to risk and optimize investments.

Master Complex Challenges

Wide range of functions and seamless integration into existing structures

How can efficiency in the use of equity capital be increased? How can the costs of refinancing be reduced through risk-adjusted capital allocation? How is the prompt implementation of Basel III, MiFID II, BCBS 239, FRTB, and SREP requirements best achieved?

The answers to all these questions are the basis, which contribute significantly to the success of risk management.

Against this background , concepts such as individual data processing (IDP) and fragmented "IT island solutions" no longer have a future. Required are end-to-end, flexible, adaptable, and extensible modular software systems that are up-to-date in meeting requirements and set benchmarks in terms of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Benefits of DECIDE RISK

    With the help of pre-deal checks and realtime limit monitoring, you can always ensure reliable adherence to set limits.
  • Identify risks faster
    Comprehensive Limit Violation Management immediately highlights risk concentrations and human errors.
  • Set appropriate priorities
    With DECIDE RISK, you can flexibly control limit utilization in favor of pending transactions and generate limits for risk controlling with intraday limit monitoring.

    Legal frameworks resulting from MiFID II, FRTB, etc. are kept up to date and integrated in the system.

Everything Important is Always in View

Detailed Analyses, Assessments and Reports

DECIDE RISK’s particular strength is its presentation of analyses and assessments. When triggered by a certain event, automated reports can be generated with just a few clicks and sent directly to the relevant parties via e-mail or SMS. Drilldowns of exposures across the entire portfolio hierarchy according to instrument- or cash-flow-specific criteria ensure maximum transparency in risk representation. Risks from external systems can be imported via standardized interfaces and integrated into the complete overview. Complete historization of results and data documents the exact chronological sequence of the risk utilization and brings transparency to analysis of limit overruns.

The flexible parameterization concept is another important feature of DECIDE RISK. Against this backdrop, you can compare settings for evaluation, risk management and quote prices for different user groups and standardize them if necessary. Access security is ensured by DECIDE RISK at various levels. Granular rights management enables access rights and responsibilities to be assigned to users individually as required. DECIDE RISK’s powerful software is part of Trade Lifecycle Management and is available either as an enterprise solution or as Software as a Service (SaaS).
