Financial risk and evaluation

In this research stream we analyze the technologies, methodologies, processes and procedures involved in assessing and measuring risk in financial institutions and the wider financial industry, covering the following areas:

  • Credit risk
  • Market risk
  • Asset and liability management (ALM) and liquidity risk
  • Balance sheet management
  • Collateral management

Operational risk and governance, risk and compliance (GRC)

Our detailed research analyzes the overarching enterprise GRC environment, identifying important trends and technological developments in the key GRC areas:

  • GRC analytics
  • Model governance and validation
  • Third-party risk management
  • IT risk
  • Conduct risk
  • Operational risk
  • Internal audit


Data and analytics are replacing manual work in many FIs’ middle- and back-office functions, while vendors now provide a variety of ‘OpsTech’ tools to address a new breed of organizational systems and processes. In this growing area of research we examine:

  • Automation
  • Decoupled architecture
  • ‘Componentization’
  • Repackaged solutions
  • Managed services
  • Risk business intelligence


Chartis examines how new technologies and leading practices are applied across a range of key sectors, and the industry and regulatory issues and drivers dominating various market areas, including:

  • Banking
  • Insurance
  • Capital markets
  • Sell-side
  • Buy-side
  • Hedge funds
  • The front office
  • Energy and commodity trading
  • Retail

Financial crime

Recognizing that many areas of financial crime also increasingly overlap with each other and other areas of the business, our analysis of risk and financial crime – second to none in the industry – examines trends and developments in the following:

  • Cyber crime and cybersecurity
  • Cyber risk management and quantification
  • Account- and payments-based fraud
  • Know Your Customer (KYC)
  • Client lifecycle management
  • Anti-money laundering (AML)
  • Trade surveillance/transaction monitoring
  • Watchlist monitoring

Regulatory compliance and reporting

Complying with regulation is a fact of life for financial institutions, but getting it right can be costly and complex. We examine the impacts of regulation on risk technology usage and markets, and the tools and techniques needed to ensure effective compliance and added operational value. This research covers:

  • Regulatory requirements including Basel 2 and 3, Dodd-Frank, MiFID II, FRTB and GDPR
  • Risk-aware accounting (the introduction of IFRS and CECL standards)
  • Stress testing
  • Calculating the cost of compliance


As risk management continues to disperse throughout the organization, being on top of data – its quality, integrity and timeliness – is vital. As data management in particular comes of age, we consider the detail in the data, analyzing the following key areas:

  • Data infrastructure and databases: performance, scalability and security
  • Data governance
  • Data quality
  • Data integrity and control
  • Data integration
  • Alt-data
  • Ease of data access
  • Data delivery methods
  • Risk data aggregation


The risk technology market is constantly evolving, driven by shifting customer needs and the emergence of new technologies. To help you navigate this changing landscape, Chartis covers all the key technology blocks you need to know about, including:

  • Statistical models
  • AI and advanced analytics
  • Risk analytics (non-linear calculations, predictive modeling, simulations, scenario analysis, etc.)
  • Computational power
  • Analytical performance
  • Cloud and Risk as a Service
  • Open source
  • Cryptocurrencies
  • Blockchain
