Razor is used for specialised Economic Capital Modeling by a number of banks, hedge funds and brokers. With Razor a financial institution can take a rigorous approach to Economic Capital across all lending and trading books. For credit risk this involves the regular monitoring of the Economic Capital that institutions hold to cover exposures to a wide range of counterparties. This approach provides security in all types of market conditions, including the recent volatility in the markets.
Razor Risk Technologies has delivered a leading edge combination of thought leadership in managing Economic Capital and state-of-the-art technology. The business is constantly evolving, and the increasing complexity of the firm's trading and hedging activity required us to identify a solution that is inherently adaptable and extendible.
At one of our clients where the Razor solution models the credit component of Economic Capital, Razor provides results in less than two hours for a process that had previously taken 24 hours. The solution fully utilises the distributed processing capabilities of Razor.
