ScenarioFrontierTM

For Offense, Not Just Defense

Home

Delivered in an easy-to-use web-based front end, ScenarioFrontier provides users the flexibility to create customized scenarios, the power to analyze strategic plans and the oversight to monitor budget performance.

Since the start of the downturn, stress testing moved from being a secondary element of Pillar 2 frameworks to a central means of determining capital needs for financial institutions.

The industry response to this requirement has been a frantic development of capabilities, focussed primarily on the methodological techniques that underpin robust financial projections.

However, limited progress has been made in industrializing stress testing processes and infrastructure.

ScenarioFrontier is a powerful tool for day-to-day strategic planning and capital management, permitting companies to identify and quantify risks and opportunities across a wide range of potential economic environments. ScenarioFrontier integrates budget, risk, and macroeconomic variables for regulatory compliance and management action planning.
