SAS® OpRisk VaR
About SAS OpRisk VaR
SAS OpRisk VaR assists organizations in achieving and maintaining regulatory compliance for operational risks. Organizations can use SAS OpRisk VaR to manage and summarize loss data, fit models to loss data using highly sophisticated predefined statistical models, include key risk indicators (KRIs) in those models, evaluate model fits using a variety of goodness-of-fit statistics, compute value at risk (VaR) using advanced simulation techniques, and forecast economic capital needs for operational risk.
The most current release is SAS OpRisk VaR 4.2.
What’s New in SAS OpRisk VaR 4.2
SAS OpRisk VaR configuration data now resides on the SAS Metadata server. There is now a plug-in to SAS Management Console that replaces the Configuration Editor.
SAS OpRisk VaR now enables you to save scenarios and cross-classification variables that you have created. After these are saved, you can import them to another data version. You can also import them from different data stores.
SAS OpRisk VaR now provides an extensibility framework for insurance modeling. Insurance policies are implemented through method programs, and SAS OpRisk VaR supplies two by default, the Basel method and the Plain method. You can supply your own code to include additional methods to apply insurance policies.
SAS OpRisk VaR now enables you to define scenarios based on aggregate loss distributions. These scenarios represent the aggregate distribution with a severity distribution and a degenerate distribution set to 1 as frequency. This might be useful when you are interested in modeling aggregate loss indirectly and not interested in modeling the frequency distribution.
