VaR Platform

With a focus on being “Technology Empowered” at the heart of our approach, HKEX is proud to launch VaR Platform, a brand new platform for post-trade clients; enabling a new risk-adjusted way of calculating the initial margin and stress testing our market default fund. This approach enables client risks to be managed in accordance with compliance and regulatory requirements, whilst at the same time maximising transparency and cost-efficiency across market participants.

Getting Started

CPs should note that during the Familiarisation Programme, the VaR Platform is not in commercial operation and should not be used in any commercial context or form. As such, the VaR Platform and any output that can be obtained from such platform including without limitation the new set of margin reports are, during the Familiarisation Programme, provided for familiarisation purposes only. CPs therefore should not rely on the VaR Platform or any output from such platform in any way and should continue their normal risk management measures, prepare funding and make payments according to existing CCASS reports and schedule until the business implementation of the VaR Platform and the new risk models.
