Client Cases


A Luxembourgish Management Company has under its responsibility a set of UCITS and AIFs sub-funds that needs to have a daily computation of VaR and corresponding stress tests. VaR is normally required for complex strategies (involving extensive use of derivatives for example) but the Management Company has chosen to compute the VaR for all sub-funds regardless of the obligation towards the regulator. This provides a global unity among sub-funds’ risk management process and gives an additional tool for the risk management department to monitor and compare the market risk of each portfolio. The VaR computation is coupled with a specially dedicated stress testing framework meant to complete the global risk picture of each portfolio.
