Market risk

Faced with continuously changing markets and increasing regulation, financial institutions need to regularly review and optimise their models, processes, and systems for measuring and managing market risk. We have been helping our clients - banks, insurers, asset managers and clearing houses - with these complex market risk issues for many years. We are the right partner for you when it comes to implementing new regulations such as prudency requirements in risk management, solvency and derivatives regulations (e.g.  CRR / CRD IV, Solvency II, and EMIR), as well as other market risk issues. Besides advising many of our clients on implementing or extending their market risk models, we are experienced in seeing regulatory approval processes for internal models through.


Our website also contains more information about our other areas of expertise, and how we can leverage our experience in the market risk environment to your advantage.
