“Every year, the American Financial Technology Awards recognize the most innovative third-party technology providers and end-users for their operational and technology breakthroughs, outstanding achievements and contributions to the industry. CompatibL has demonstrated its significant contribution to the evolution of credit risk modeling in 2021, which will impact the financial technology industry in a positive manner.”
What are Market Generators?
CompatibL’s market generators are machine learning algorithms for generating additional samples of market data when a historical time series has insufficient length to satisfy a model without relying on any preconceived notions about the data. They are able to generate the data for time horizons between 1 and 30 years that risk models require, making possible the accurate measurement of credit risk, limits, insurance reserves (economic scenario generation), and macro strategy performance during the COVID-19 pandemic, which introduced dramatic changes in financial markets that rendered the old data obsolete.
The market generator technology is based on the pioneering research by Alexander Sokol (in collaboration with Alexei Kondratyev), which was presented and extensively discussed at numerous industry conferences, including Risk Live 2020, Risk Live 2021, WBS Quantitative Finance Conference 2021, and WBS Quantitative Finance Conference Spring Edition 2021.
