Linear financial risk engine
Bank

For a large bank I took part in a project that developed a linear risk engine to calculate interest rate and reporting risk for products held by the bank. This was an agile project and made use of test driven development and applied continuous delivery. The frontend made use of ASP.NET MVC and the backend was a custom C# WCF job processor.

For a large bank I took part in a project that developed and maintained a product that aggregated all the market risk for the bank. I was responsible for developing the calculation engine that calculated the contributions to the overall risk of the individual portfolios. The product was written in C#.
