Semlab to enhance Market Risk assessment metrics

Semlab, together with an international consortium of financial experts and supported by several large financial institutions, has submitted a proposal to the EU to enhance market risk assessment calculations by incorporating real time semantically analysed news-based market information.

The aim is to improve market risk metrics, such as the Value at Risk (VaR) and Expected Shortfall (ES). The incorporation of financial news will compensate for inflexibility of existing models with regard to strong market fluctuations or market instability and give more dynamic and more reliable market risk estimation.

The consortium consists of several top level financial experts and software companies as well as cutting edge research institutes.
