SAS earns top 3 honor in the Chartis RiskTech100 2023

Climbing higher in the RiskTech100 rankings, the analytics leader also scored five category awards

Chartis Research named SAS the No. 3 overall risk and compliance technology provider for 2023. The results were revealed in the analyst firm’s latest Chartis RiskTech100®, renowned as the preeminent annual analysis and ranking of the world’s risk technology market. SAS rose from 2022’s fourth-place finish, buoyed by financial services-focused innovation and its acquisition of Kamakura Corp., announced last June.

“SAS’ smart acquisition of Kamakura has helped broaden its financial services sector coverage and expand capabilities in key areas like liquidity, interest rate and market risk,” said Sidhartha Dash, Chief Researcher at Chartis. “This, combined with the transformation of SAS’ risk solutions portfolio on cloud-native SAS® Viya®, underscores its commitment to innovation across the full end-to-end risk management life cycle.”

In addition to cracking the top 3, the AI and analytics leader also earned five category wins, including:

  • Model Risk Management.
  • Enterprise Stress Testing.
  • Risk and Finance Integration.
  • Balance Sheet Risk Management.
  • IFRS 9.

As highlighted in its RiskTech100 winner's profile, SAS has topped the Risk and Finance Integration and IFRS 9 categories several years running.

SAS: Top 5 since 2005

“SAS continues to innovate where our customers are requesting deeper insight and trustworthy risk management solutions – in areas like interest rate and liquidity risk analytics, credit risk modeling and decisioning, model risk management, and actuarial transformation, to name a few. By aligning with market needs as we reinvent and modularize our risk portfolio on cloud-first SAS Viya, SAS aims to grow in partnership with our customers and remain the most trusted name in analytics.”
