In Risk Analysis, we provide the necessary foundation for Risk Management to obtain complete Risk Control of the trading activity in the organisation. We calculate risk measures critical to the organisation for all business activities. The figures are included in daily risk management and reporting and furthermore form the basis for capital and risk allocation. We also continuously expand the in-house framework for performing quick and agile risk assessments of new potential business cases.
