Risk Adjusted Performance

Optimising risk and returns

The use of Risk-Adjusted Return on Capital (RAROC) is expanding beyond being merely a performance indicator, to becoming a key driver in pricing and evaluation of transactions.
However, at many financial institutions, risk information remains disconnected from financial close and reporting processes, creating validation challenges.

There is a need for improvement in measuring and meeting risk-adjusted performance objectives, pricing products to reflect their true risk, and understanding how financial institutions are impacted by threats to liquidity and capital adequacy.
