swissQuant Clearing Risk Management System (RMS) is an extension of the Risk Factor Technology, called impaQt, which has been developed by swissQuant Group and SIX Financial Information. The offered solution is highly flexible given its modular set-up, plus it is designed to be in complete conformity with EMIR requirements. The ability to calculate risk figures (margin and stress) for arbitrary portfolio combinations allows for the required "slicing and dicing". The architecture and the risk measures of the RMS therefore enable to segregate the risk from each clearing account and aggregate risks freely. For a segregated account setup, risks and stress can therefore be calculated at any arbitrary aggregation.
