Visual Risk, the Australian treasury solution supplier, have been in existence for 13 years and dominate the Australian and New Zealand market. Over the last few years, they have been expanding across the Asia-Pacific region and are now starting to attack the European and North American markets with their beautifully visual system. They now have an office in UK and exhibited at the recent ACT Annual Conference in Liverpool.
Visual Risk's treasury solution is used by over 115 corporates world-wide, including British American Tobacco and Schweppes. It is a modular system comprised of five basic modules and a reporting dashboard:

These modules can be used separately or as a full integrated system. BAT uses the Risk Analytics combined with SAP Treasury to carryout Cashflow-at-Risk for interest cost minimisation and FX risk analysis. Schweppes use the Visual Risk system to hedge their risk on sugar and food imports, and for valuation hedge accounting and back office processing.
Visual Risk is best suited for any company looking for best practise analytics and mid-tier companies looking for a comprehensive treasury solution, e.g.:
- Amcor use Visual Risk as a front-to-back treasury management, risk and hedge accounting solution.
- Others use it just for hedge accounting and FX exposures making use of the integrated over-the-counter financial data from Tullett Prebon, and the GFI suite of Market Data which includes data on OTC derivatives in fixed income, FX, energy & commodities, equities and interest rates.
An important aspect of the recent visualrisk development has been the focus on managing treasury targets with cash flow-at-risk(CFaR). Here they have applied their CFaR methodology along with a setting of Treasury Target@Risk to provide an effective tool for the measurement of risk and the achievement of specific, quantifiable treasury targets.
