The Global Valuation Universal Solver can support calculations for a wide range of complex risk and pricing challenges in Financial Services
Once trade pay-offs and calibrated market data are in place, in the cloud or on-premises, they can be shared and re-used for all risk and pricing needs.
No data duplication
Streamlined model management
Esther performs full scale XVA calculations on massive portfolios with a billion nested Monte Carlo paths and on-demand trade increments to support:
Capital optimisation (XVA)
Capital Valuation Adjustment (KVA)
Entity level FVA trading
Comprehensive Model Risk visualisation and Reverse Stress Testing to avoid expensive P&L restatement and minimise hedging costs
Stress Testing and FRTB
Full Revaluation FRTB, stress testing and stressed VaR can be performed daily using the most complex models. If you are struggling to execute your advanced full revaluation calculations daily and realise FRTB optimisations then we can help.
All calculations use the same Esther universal solver for hard/nested simulations and the same calibrated market data and trade pay-offs used for XVA.
Entity level FVA that fully models re-hypothecated collateral and economic capital calculates the true cost of funding.
Esther can calculate funding cost for incremental trades to ensure fair not-for profit funding add-ons can be agreed with counterparties and rate resets performed every month.
This is the basis for a post-Libor funding risk model that removes systemic risk from the industry.
Demanding regulations for Solvency II and Risk Margins require complex probability models for the unhedgeable risks from lifetime insurance and reinsurance obligations.
The ability to quickly determine capital provisioning and potential costs of transferring obligations to a third party across the enterprise is critical to regulatory compliance and optimisation through rapid and informed business decisions.
