Openlink Endur helps organizations:
In order to avoid earnings volatility, hedges that qualify as highly effective can be afforded hedge accounting treatment. However implementing hedge accounting requires a large amount of work documenting the hedge relationship and proving both prospectively and retrospectively that the hedge relationship is effective. Evolving regulations and accounting standards (e.g. IFRS 9) make it more difficult to keep systems current with the latest rules and methodologies.
The Openlink solution analyzes the effectiveness of hedges (under IFRS9, IAS39 or FAS 133) and invoke the appropriate hedge accounting treatment. It features our best-of-breed Hedge Analyzer module for robust hedge effectiveness testing, and provides complete transparency that enables users to drill into postings to verify all payment, accrual or valuation calculations on the trade. This solution also supports the statutory reporting required for hedge accounting.
You can automate the application of hedge accounting rules and methodologies to ensure hedges are being correctly treated; giving you the reassurance that earnings statements are being correctly reported and subject to minimal volatility.

Firms are paying much more attention to stress testing – modeling hypothetical scenarios to evaluate the impact of possible future events. And they are looking to model increasingly complex scenarios to better understand their liquidity, credit and market risks under a much wider range of circumstances.
The Openlink solution provides extensive stress testing functionality enabling you to model complex scenarios with a wide range of input factors. Our simulation engine provides a powerful and consistent application of risk factor shocks regardless of market. Risk can be attributed to hypothetical movements of any magnitude including FX rates, commodities and interest rates.
Using Openlink you get a better understanding of seen and unforeseen liquidity, credit, operational, market and other risks impacting your business.
Because many firms use different systems that are not well integrated, people performing different functions aren’t using a single, consistent set of information. Errors that arise in transferring data between systems need to be corrected introducing delays for users; for a trader or risk manager who wants to see trading positions in real-time this can be critical.
With Openlink you get one integrated solution and one set of data that covers end-to-end processes from equity production, gas processing, forecasting, sourcing and storage/transport optimization to marketing, trading, contract management and position management through to risk, accounting, reporting and compliance in the back office.
This removes errors that arise in transferring data between systems and ensures that traders and risk managers can see correct up-to-date positions at all times.
This also eliminates a lot of the reconciliation work that typically goes on between the front to back office.
