Portfolio Analytics


Get Ahead of Potential Market Shifts

Risk professionals can utilize Aperture’s stress testing module to simulate the impact of historical market scenarios or single factor shocks on the collateral portfolio and the associated credit line, offering proactive identification of those that would be at risk for a collateral call.
