Xenomorph News: Xenomorph adds risk factor management module to TimeScape
News in Brief
Xenomorph adds risk factor management module to TimeScape
We have added a new Risk Factor Management module to TimeScape to provide risk managers with clearer oversight of the underlying risk factors driving their risk models. In response to demand for consistent, quality and auditable risk modelling and reporting, the module allows easy definition of individual risk factors from formulas combining raw market data series, assignment of risk factor to groups, viewing of a factor’s participation in collections and categorization of factors by dimensions such as industry, currency, rating, region or tenor. Risk factors can then be passed through automated validation processes and data exceptions investigated and corrected, before feeding downstream risk management and modelling systems.
