Risky Finance is based around the interactive data visualisation tools accessible from the top menu bar. Currently there are five such tools available to subscribers: – banking, sovereigns, credit, equities and UK municipals. Others are currently in development.
Choosing a chart
Once you have loaded a visualisation page, the choice of chart is important. Do you want to look at a single bank, or compare a single metric across a sample of banks? Do you want to compare different countries’ sovereign debt ratios, or look at the borrowing costs of a single country at different maturities? Are you interested in the high-yield bond performance within a sector, or across sectors?
Choosing data and how to filter it
For the larger datasets in equities or credit, you will need to choose an index containing the data you want to view. For displays that require a lot of data points, further filtering might be necessary, such as industry sector, company, or country. Some controls are only activated after higher level filtering has been chosen.
