The market turmoil caused by the COVID-19 pandemic saw volatility and value-at-risk measures soar, making risk calculations and stress testing even more imperative. The complexity of market risk has increased significantly in recent years, driven by new regulation i.e. FRTB and IBOR, the focus on internal risk standards and changing market conditions. Having access to high quality data and risk models is crucial so that firms can identify, measure, monitor, and control exposures to market risk.

“Our powerful, high performance platform supports a full complement of measures for accurately managing market risk. In 2020, we saw COVID-19 trigger increased instability and uncertainty across markets. With volatility and VaR measures rising, we’re pleased that our clients recognise the benefits of using Quantifi and how we can support their business both now and in the long term.”

Rohan Douglas, CEO, Quantifi
