Component documentationSAP Treasury and Risk Management (FIN-FSCM-TRM)


SAP Treasury and Risk Management is based on a series of solutions that primarily analyze and optimize business processes in the financial area of a company.

Transaction Manager

A core task in many finance departments is concluding financial transactions. Depending on the company policy, the emphasis can either be on providing an internal service for the affiliated group companies, or participating actively in the financial markets in order to invest liquid assets, finance planned investment, or hedge existing risks. The Transaction Manager provides the instruments for processing the related financial transactions, from deal capture through to transferring the relevant data to Financial Accounting. The system supports both traditional treasury departments that focus on trading as well as asset management departments. This has the advantage that it enables you to use the same platform for various types of transaction - from short-term finance to longer-term strategic investments.

Market Risk Analyzer

Besides traditional finance management tasks such as cash management and liquidity assurance, effective market risk management is a decisive factor in securing your company’s competitive position.. In this field, the Market Risk Analyzer offers extensive position evaluations, such as mark-to-market valuations of financial transactions. It also includes tools for calculating risk and return figures, including exposure, future values, sensitivities and value at risk. When you run these reports, you can incorporate both contracted positions and fictitious financial transactions in the calculations. The valuations can be based on both real and simulated market prices. Together with a high degree of flexibility for creating reports, the Market Risk Analyzer provides a reliable evaluation basis for market risk controlling.

Credit Risk Analyzer

The Credit Risk Analyzer focuses on measuring, analyzing and controlling counterparty default risk. The first phase aims to cover the specific risks associated with financial transactions in a company. The Credit Risk Analyzer enables you to control risks actively by setting limits. This is supported by flexible limit management functions with online monitoring, as well as extensive reporting options. As a result, managers are in a position to identify credit risks as they occur and take evasive action.

Portfolio Analyzer

Given that the funds available for investment are usually limited, and that there are numerous investment options to choose from, the crucial question for investment policy decisions is how well the investments have actually performed. The economic success of an investment is therefore a critical factor when it comes to making investment policy decisions. The Portfolio Analyzer is designed to provide the answers regarding the economic success of investments. The focus lies on analyzing performance, that is, in precisely measuring the investment successes achieved, as well as comparing with targets to be achieved. Furthermore, details of the performance achieved according to cause, that is, the contribution of each portfolio element to overall performance, has been enabled. The basis for these evaluations is the portfolio structure, which lets you group investments into different categories. You can run evaluations for portfolios at different levels in the portfolio hierarchy, or for an asset category across several portfolios.

Accounting Analyzer

The Accounting Analyzer enables you to evaluate positions and subpositions (B-HA) of the Transaction Manager with regard to the position component values.

The Accounting Analyzer reads the position component values of the positions and subpositions from the Transaction Manager and stores them as key figures in the Result Database. This enables you, for example, to store the position component values on a daily or weekly basis based on the original market data in the Result Database. You also can calculate your own position key figures (based upon the original position components) which are not available in the position management of the Transaction Manager.

From the Result Database, you can generate reports in the Analyzer Information System (AIS), which displays these key figures.

You can set up portfolio hierarchies with differentiation criteria unequal to company code, security class, and security account, which enables you to aggregate position values on different levels. For example, you can aggregate the values on the product type level.
