ABOUT US

Mission Statement

Imagine a strategic risk management technology that prefers long-term performance over short-term gains; that controls several risks simultaneously; that incorporates extreme movements and non-normal processes; that does not simply assume the future repeats the past but integrates a structured mathematical framework with collective and individual wisdom; that is dynamic with assets, liabilities, and derivatives; that allows processes to change over time as regimes change; that tailors general objectives and constraints to each institution; and that provides insight and not just answers. Imagine a technology that allows you to shape the future by shaping the densities of multiple outcomes. Our goal is the development and application of that technology for the difficult financial and economic environment we live in. That technology is here now!

Research

We conduct research in support of our mission. Much of this is done on the application of dynamic stochastic optimization, various kinds of stochastic processes, model evaluation, capital allocation, catastrophic risk analysis, and new methods for insight and analysis. We are specially working on methods for identifying and controlling crashes, corrections, and advantaging rallies.


History

The RisKontroller framework was initially developed at the World Bank under a research project for strategic asset and liability management for sovereign countries. It was designed to incorporate market risks, credit, commodity, liquidity, macro- and micro- economic and financial risks, catastrophic risks, and others.
