RiskEdge Software is a VaR (Value at Risk) based Commodity Risk Management System that provides Deeper Insights and Control on your business. An easy-to-use web-based Solution, RiskEdge enables physical commodity trading companies reduce costs, improve profitability & get better at Risk compliance. It is an Integrated Risk Analytics Platform so companies can manage Commodity Price Volatility and Credit Risks on their Portfolios easily.

There are 3 primary areas which RiskEdge delivers to its clients:

1. Market Risk: RiskEdge goes beyond vanilla VaR (Value-at-Risk) methods and calculates Greeks and Expected Shortfall (or Conditional VaR) for positions and portfolios which allow its users deeper insights into business. Proprietary measures like ERR (Excess Risk Ratio) help companies assess their risks with a longer term backdrop. It covers all Deal Types (Physicals, Basis, Futures, Forwards, Options, Swaps) and uses full-revaluation method to calculate risks on vanilla and structured derivatives.

2. Credit Risk: Potential Future Exposure (PFE) and CVA (Credit Value Adjusted) based models allow RiskEdge clients to assess the losses in case of counterparty default. The Credit Risk model uses Multi-variate Geometric Brownian Motion (MV GBM) to simulate millions of scenarios for thousands of counterparties and summarizes the results at the portfolio level.

3. Derivative Pricing Algorithms: With one of the World’s largest Derivative Pricing Library using over 100 different algorithms, RiskEdge allows clients to price any kind of structured / exotic derivative product using multiple valuation methods. The Pricing Library is designed to include ever increasing structured products and newer methods in future, making RiskEdge a long-term solution for clients.

RiskEdge is a Web-based Solution that can be deployed on premise or on cloud. Its Risk Engine is built around multi-dimensional needs of clients and its Flexi Reporting Framework allows clients to create ad-hoc reports on the fly and even adjust the format from the web-page. Sundry position and risk limits can be set in the system, which alerts the users on limit breaches. It can be configured by users to suit their business processes and calculation preferences.

With clients and consultants in 6 countries and an established team of Commodity and Quantitative Finance Experts, Risk Edge is fast establishing its presence globally.
