We help firms calculate economic capital, using a one-year value-at-risk (VaR) Monte Carlo approach. Our insights help quantify diversification benefits and concentration measures across portfolios and risk types to inform management, active asset allocation, and strategic business decisions.

Firms can maximize return on capital and address business needs associated with one-year VaR economic capital calculations and reporting. You can leverage a variety of simulation methods for scenario analysis, using correlation, econometric, macroeconomic, or your own proprietary models along with our sophisticated analytics. With our data, models, and research, you can estimate capital with confidence when evaluating distributions of losses, earnings-at-risk, and other components of profitability to determine total return.

Incorporate economic capital into decision-making

Our approach allows you to track the performance of individual business units or portfolios and ensure safety for bondholders by using economic capital measures.
