Analytic Risk Technology

Analytic Risk Technology is a startup company specialising in stress testing tools and consultancy with a focus on the top level of the process.
Our key product offering is a Capital Management Tool which, as it produces the final results, is the right place to bring together and control the results from the many moving parts that form a complex stress test.

Some banks are still doing this top layer in less controlled ways (e.g. spreadsheets) which is not sustainable given the requirements to scale up to more stress tests and more scenarios, and the significance of the results.
It’s also applicable to regulators, as this level of control at the top level allows for an efficient mixture of internal modelling and benchmarking, making it feasible to run a supervisory stress test initiative with a reasonable regulatory effort.

The company was founded by Timothy Murnaghan who was responsible for the stress test tools and stress testing data collection effort at the PRA/Bank of England leading up to the introduction of the FPC concurrent stress tests, and so the importance of this layer of tooling is informed by that experience.

CIMCON Software

Models and spreadsheets used for financial reporting need to be error-free, properly documented, auditable and protected against cyber attacks or internal fraud.

From uncovering hidden errors in models and Excel spreadsheets, to detecting file corruption in file shares, Access or SharePoint repositories, and identifying cybersecurity risks, our software enables you to automatically identify the location and magnitude of these risks. It also provides tools to minimize them in a way consistent with your company’s risk management policy.
