Helaba Enhances Enterprise-Wide Derivatives Counterparty Risk Management

Helaba, one of the leading German banks, with a workforce of approximately 6,300 and a balance sheet total of around EUR 180 billion, offers financial services to companies, banks, institutional investors and the public sector, both within Germany and internationally. The bank also acts as central clearing institution and service provider for 40% of German savings banks.

Given current market practices around counterparty risk regulation, xVA management, funding and accounting, Helaba decided that the bank needed to enhance its counterparty risk infrastructure for their OTC derivatives business. To support this initiative the bank wanted to pair their existing risk and core trading infrastructure with a modern, enterprise-wide XVA solution.

With Quantifi, the risk function is able to capture all xVA measures, generate consistent analytics, including sensitivities, scenarios, and daily xVA explain at trade-level. The Front Office benefits from being able to do incremental xVA and trade profitability analysis and price XVA for all components in basis points. Benefits include:

  • A single, consistent XVA modelling framework covering for front office, accounting and risk control purposes
  • Integrated tools that generate consistent analytics, including sensitivities, scenario analysis and xVA explain
  • Comprehensive incremental xVA based pre-deal profitability analysis
  • Performance and scalability with analytical robustness
  • High performance, modern architecture for automated system integration
  • Quality and simplicity of data management helped accelerate the speed of implementation and quality of results

“During the due diligence process, Quantifi’s single solution for the calculation of xVA measures proved to be more sophisticated, flexible and scalable compared to other solutions we considered.”
