Athena - Credit Risk Transfer Analysis

Athena is an easy-to-use tool for the analysis of credit risk transfer transactions. Taking both the originator and the investor perspective, Athena shows the economic effects of a credit risk transfer transaction in function of transaction structure, macroeconomic (stress) scenarios and regulatory changes like Basel 4 and IFRS9/CECL. The typical users are responsible for credit portfolio execution, structuring of transactions, brokers and investors/asset managers.
