In today’s rapidly changing landscape, where shocks are the norm, simple prediction just doesn’t cut it. At Straterix, we’re not just keeping pace; we’re setting the tempo. We’ve pioneered the shift from prediction to discovery, recognizing that while we can’t necessarily foresee extreme tail-risk events, we can certainly prepare for them and their ripple effects. Our tools enable unique features such as Exhaustive Reverse Stress Testing and the identification of Early Warning Indicators. They are designed to equip institutions facing unprecedented uncertainty. More than just surviving the challenges of today, our vision is to give our clients an edge by also discovering and harnessing emerging opportunities. To share our vision in greater detail, I’d recommend reading the following three articles recently published by GARP, and which outline the most timely and critical steps that need to be taken:

Balanced Risk Modeling: How to Better Prepare for Shocks – consistent benchmarking of integrated risk across a peer group of financial institutions while identifying the outliers.

Exhaustive Scenario Analysis: What Banks Can Learn From the Airline Industry’s Flight Simulations – implementing exhaustive reverse scenario analysis in minutes.

How to Improve Risk Oversight at Banks: A Three-Step Checklist – early warning identification for proactive mitigation planning.


Great move on the regulatory front! FED to require multiple scenarios as it expands the breadth of bank health exams in 2024.
Multiple scenarios are a must. But they have to be customized!
Straterix has been at the forefront of such multi-scenario approach, with advanced technology that enables banks to discover the full range of plausible risks they face
