Real Time Capital Analytics - Economic Capital Optimiser

Chase Cooper’s unique aCCelerate RTCA (Real Time Capital Analytics) enables users to model and quantify capital charge for Basel II operational risk management.

aCCelerate RTCA is a proprietary mathematical model that uses Monte Carlo simulation to calculate capital charge based on the existing internal loss data, available external loss data and Business Environment and Internal Control Factors (BEICFs) contained in the risk and control assessment (RCA), as well as using scenario analysis data. The model fully complies with Basel II AMA capital requirements.

The BEICFs are modelled in RTRA (Real Time Risk Analytics) and the output from RTRA can be transferred into RTCA to combine with internal and external loss data, in any desired weightings. Economic as well as regulatory operational risk capital charges can be computed in RTCA at any user specified quantiles using Monte Carlo simulation. In addition, RTCA has the ability to take into account any correlation between business lines and between loss event types.
