Lacima presents at ComRisk London 2017


16-18 May 2017, London

Presenting on the first day of the conference, Lacima Group CEO Chris Strickland will address the top five challenges faced by risk managers in their day to day business. His presentation will explore:

  • How to explain VaR changes to traders and senior management (VaR attribution)
  • How to quickly assess the risk of a large new position
  • Reporting VaR across a variety of desks (Oils/Softs/Metals)                                                              
  • VaR calculations for a portfolio of Crack spreads                                                                                
  • Handling the disconnect between analytics used in the risk engine and the pricing desk

Ahead of his presentation, Chris spoke with ComRisk's Herschel Walker about how important it is to distinguish risk management from risk measurement. Read the full article here.
