Performance measurement and monitoring for asset management

The increased focus on portfolio risk management is accompanied by a regulatory requirement or best practice-driven decision to ensure that the models used to value financial instruments in portfolio and/or to measure portfolio risks are reliable.

Reply supports organisations with performance measurement and monitoring:

  • Reviewing and validating the valuation models and related assumptions, used to determine the fair value of the financial instruments in portfolio (e.g., a credit risk derivative);
  • Establishing a back testing programme for an organisation’s models to monitor their reliability, using actual fluctuations ("dirty backtesting") or hypothetical fluctuations ("clean backtesting") of the portfolio’s value;
  • Establishing a stress testing programme to identify, measure and manage the risk of the occurrence of extreme variations of the risk factors to which a portfolio might be exposed through its investments.
