NxR2 is a real-time pricing, portfolio construction and risk management application designed to help active trading desks, structurers and risk managers to independently price and risk profile complex credit portfolios. Leveraging Numerix’s advanced pricing models and the R2 proprietary methodologies, the system allows users to create profiling strategies in real time, perform advanced analyses of their portfolios (such as roll down, carry and aging) and provide transparency and clarity around portfolio and position risks and the impact of market changes.
Drill Down, Roll Up, Slice & Dice Reporting
The user interface and dashboarding capabilities built into the NxR2 platform give it the sort of front end usability that enhances productivity and provides more time for doing actual analysis. Rather than spending time on data cleaning or formatting reports, the pre-configured capabilities (such as widgets) allow users to quickly build new ways of looking at their positions, portfolios or result sets.
Flexible Calibration Capabilities
Knowing that our customers have to understand both model-based pricing and the reality implied by the current market levels, NxR2 is designed to enable a robust calibration between the two. Theoretical model prices can be compared to market prices and the differences stored and reported on to ensure that risk management tools can account for either by using them in further downstream analyses.
One of a Kind Scenario Studio
Built into NxR2 is a scenario analysis capability that offers a unique blend of macro-level tools with the ability to perform what-if analyses at a very granular level. The Scenario Studio was engineered to provide the ability to create predictive conditional scenarios. Users can create dynamic relationships between shocks using individual risk factors within each scenario. This enables users to create a completely custom analysis quickly, which can be easily reproduced or changed as the markets move.
