Vector Risk are the developers of the Vector Risk Ultra High Performance Credit and Market Risk Solution for banks, financial services organisations, hedge funds and corporates.

Starting life as an enterprise risk engine and limits management system for tier one banks under the BoundaryRider brand (major customers include National Australia Bank (NAB)), the Vector Risk engine, workflow server and client GUI is now available as a SaaS cloud offering, and is used by all manner of institutions, including corporates. We believe that our cloud solution is as easy to use as a portfolio level market and credit risk exposure engine and workflow system for OTC derivatives can be, allowing smaller or less sophisticated banks, hedge funds and corporates to report on and manage correctly modelled VaR, Expected Shortfall, Stress Testing, Hedge Effectiveness, VaR Margining, PFE, EPE, CVA, DVA and FVA.

We have incorporated automated rates feeds from the key OTC market data vendors, and developed a range of tools that afford easy trade load and management. Our engine and models are consistent across calculations, asset classes, including multi-curve pricing, OIS discounting and CSA handling.
