Risk Quantum database - methodology

The Risk Quantum database contains thousands of data points across over 350 metrics collected from the public disclosures of more than 120 banks.

Following the initial launch, the database will be expanded to include data from regulators – such as stress-test results and other miscellaneous data-gathering exercises – central counterparties, funds, insurers and corporations.

Most of the financial data is released at the end of each quarter, with the remainder published every six months. The data is collated by the Risk Quantum editorial team as soon as it becomes available. It is then formatted and standardised before being added to the database.

The metrics we track are grouped into 12 categories. For the banks we cover, these include capital adequacy, measures of market, credit and operational risk, liquidity ratios, systemic indicators and derivatives positions.

Metrics are disclosed in the reporting currency they were originally released, but users have the option to convert each into US dollars for ease of comparison.

The database can be accessed here. The full list of data points currently available on the database can be found at this page. The full range of banks covered can be viewed here.
