Radically improve employee engagement
by providing the right tools to smart risk professionals.
Ultrafast numerical modeling and smart business intelligence
drastically reduces the time to go from raw data to
risk committee quality reports from weeks to seconds.
Implementation of new ALM platforms is difficult. No doubt.
We provide flexibility so you can start incrementally with specific analytics modules yet
have a roadmap to a fully integrated end-to-end ALM platform.
Our analytics platform was born in the cloud and is designed with flexible deployment options
to meet your business needs.
We build the insurance risk analytics and reporting software we wish we had while preparing materials for the C-level executives of asset & liability risk committees at large multinational insurers throughout Asia.
The financial services industry is ripe for digital disruption. This is particularly true of insurance companies where you will find amazingly talented actuaries and risk professionals doing amazing things with subpar tools and fragmented data sources. It is not unusual to find 100MB spreadsheets linked across tens of Excel files with little to no formal controls in place.
Although these kinds of technical feats are impressive, they also pose governance challenges, lead to low engagement from highly talented employees and introduce operational "key man" risks as there may only be one person in the entire company who understands how the process works.
We know things can be better and that is why we formed Coherent Asia. Using the latest in fast numerical modeling technologies and business intelligence we have developed an end-to-end software solution that industrialises the process and takes you from raw data to risk committee quality reports in a matter of seconds rather than weeks.
