New iteration includes enterprise-wide overviews of risk.
Kamakura Corporation has announced that version 8.0 of its Risk Manager software has been shipped to clients.
Enhancements to the software include analysis for varying types of risk, such as credit, market, interest rate, liquidity, operational and counterparty, as well as regional and capital adequacy. Other improvements include senior-level overviews of risk across an organization, suitable for boards of directors, shareholders and regulators, including mandated stress tests.
"The enhancements that have been incorporated into version 8.0 have been driven by a combination of ongoing client initiatives, the evolution of the regulatory framework and taking advantage of technological advances that improve operating efficiencies while maximizing functional capabilities," says Martin Zorn, chief administrative officer at Kamakura. "The enhancements in version 8.0 include enhancements for the simulation of risk, enhancements for expanded transaction coverage and enhancements for greater accuracy in valuation. Much of this innovation stems from Kamakura's on-going efforts to combine best practices in finance, computer science and physics to keep Kamakura Risk Manager at the leading edge of risk systems for our clients around the world."
