Contact Us

Risk Latte Americas Inc. is a boutique financial engineering firm and its main business is working with clients to develop for them proprietary market risk, credit risk and derivatives models.

The company employs mathematical and statistical models to price complex derivatives and estimate risk of portfolios for its clients. The company primarily relies on combining simulation models, most notably Monte Carlo simulation models, and optimization models to create dynamic scenarios for the client.

An essential strategy of the company is to train the client in using these models as well as in other pertinent areas of market and credit risk management and financial and credit derivatives.

The company is also currently engaged in developing a host of risk indices and has very recently launched a market volatility index called, the HIXX™ for capturing the equity market volatility of the Hang Seng Index (Hong Kong). This index is distributed to a select group of individuals via e-mails. The company plans to launch the index in the public domain in the near future.

The company’s current clients include large European banks, hedge funds, asset managers, derivatives & risk consultants and insurance companies.
