SASŪ High-Performance Risk
SAS High-Performance Risk is a solution for financial portfolio management that enables you to price very large portfolios for thousands of market states. You then can derive the values of financial variables such as profit/loss, exposure, and cash flows from those prices. The solution can aggregate values across market states and compute risk measures on demand, based on the ad hoc hierarchy that you request. The solution can also be used for on-demand stress testing.
SAS High-Performance Risk has the following characteristics:
- runs on a computer grid or a single computer system with multiple CPUs
- is multi-threaded, which increases responsiveness and concurrency
- uses in-memory analytics to reduce the I/O burden and run times of computations
You can use SAS Event Stream Processing with SAS High Performance Risk. See the SAS Event Stream Processing page for more information.
The most recent release is SAS High-Performance Risk 3.6.
