Who is challenging Market Risk Reporting?
At Risk Reward our practical approach to market risk enables our consultants to effectively communicate complex issues to senior management. We also offer independent experts that can be used to supplement your existing independent resources, for example as an additional non-executive director, providing a higher level of review and investigation as required.
Dealing with Stress Events
Another area where significant assistance can be provided is in the area of stress testing. For many firms even identifying suitable stress events that meet the Basel soundness standard for market risk can provide a challenge. Designing a solution that appropriately evaluates such a stress event is even more complex. At Risk Reward we have been developing market risk stress scenarios for seven years and are well versed in the issues that arise in practice.
Designing techniques to overcome the level of uncertainty and the weakness of data sets, we are able to implement cost-effective stress testing approaches that attempt to identify the impact of future plausible yet unlikely events.
