Analytic Space: Portfolio Risk Management Framework

What is Analytic Space?

risk management framework

Analytic Space, jointly developed by SciComp Inc and IBS Capital, is a customizable portfolio risk management framework for exchange traded and OTC cash and derivative instruments.

Unlike enterprise-wide risk management applications that come with multi-million dollar price tags, multi-year implementation schedules, and extensive and costly IT expenditures, Analytic Space is a business focused front and middle office technology solution that requires minimal IT support and is designed to easily interface with other technologies.

Designed by people with extensive trading, risk management and valuation business expertise, Analytic Space is a desk level portfolio risk management solution that enhances and complements existing trading, risk and position keeping systems in large financial organizations and is an ideal standalone portfolio risk management engine for smaller financial firms.

Analytic Space employs an intuitive, configurable environment for independently building and sharing custom financial and portfolio analysis reports. A guiding principle in its design is easy access to sets of advanced analytical models and algorithms (including in-house developed and/or third-party licensed pricing libraries). Analytic Space combines market data, pricing analytics and risk analysis into a single centralized service so that traders, portfolio managers, risk managers and valuation teams may easily implement and share analytical solutions tailored to their requirements.

Analytic Space includes an extensive suite of pre-implemented market data objects, pricing models for OTC cash and derivative instruments and risk analytics; all of which are completely customizable, composable and extendable by end users.
