Proprietary Traders, Brokers, Clearing Services and their clients all need to know the market exposure and risk to their firms at any given point in time. Risk managers often sit in front of multiple screens monitoring positions in real-time from multiple risk modules on different trading platforms. Without expensive development work or costly enterprise risk systems, there is no way to automatically aggregate market risk, trading positions and P&L’s in real-time from multiple trading and risk platforms in multiple locations.
Principles of Risk Aggregation – BCBS239
In addition to trading risk, since the financial crisis, regulators have introduced new broader rules such as BCBS239, ‘Principles for Effective Risk Data Aggregation and Risk Reporting’, aiming to strengthen risk management at banks and reduce the chances of future instabilities in the global financial system. However, many key challenges such as budgetary pressures, old legacy systems and complexity in consolidating risk from different locations means many banks and other financial organisations are unable to automate necessary risk frameworks. This often leads them to resort to manual workarounds which are slow, cumbersome and can lead to human error.
