Acuiti and KRM22, a provider that helps capital markets companies reduce the cost and complexity of risk management, have entered into a partnership to launch a capital markets risk sentiment index, a benchmark of how risk is perceived across capital markets.
The risk sentiment index will provide insights into how perceptions of risk are evolving and allow firms to benchmark their outlook against their peers and better respond to risks as they arise.
The index will also track sentiment on how well-positioned firms are to respond to various areas of risk and where investment and budget are being directed.
“Risk is a fast-changing ecosystem and to date there is no transparency over how different risks are perceived across the derivatives market,” says Will Mitting, founder of Acuiti.
“The KRM22 Risk Sentiment Index will allow firms to better understand their outlook in the context of their peers, alert the market to any risks that are underappreciated and identify areas requiring investment.”
Senior executives from across the market will be invited to participate in the risk index while the regular deep dives will be based on a panel of experts in that specific field.
The first report will be released in Q3. To take the survey, click here.
