COMPIRICUS Investment Forecaster using SAP HANA (XS Advanced) technology

A web app that forecasts income and expenses for existing positions based on market and investment scenarios

Maximum certainty for making more reliable investment decisions


The challenge: Fast and repeatable delivery of reliable investment forecasts

Today, many companies take data out of  their investment accounting systems and project out using very basic assumptions. This is often an unsophisticated manual process: hard to update/revise and carried out infrequently because of the time-consuming effort involved. For companies with large portfolios containing also complex financial instruments, this could lead to suboptimal investment decisions.

The COMPIRICUS risk management experts, in cooperation with a major insurance company, have addressed this need for faster, more efficient delivery of projections and the ability to easily manipulate scenarios/assumptions, and in response they have developed a solution (that is able to replace numerous Excel calculations).

This solution forecasts income and expenses for existing positions based on market and investment scenarios as chosen by the user.
