Abstract: The state of data in finance makes near real-time and consistent assessment of financial risks almost impossible today. The aggregate measures produced by traditional methods are rigid, infrequent, and not available when needed. In this chapter, we make the point that this situation can be remedied by introducing a suitable standard for data and algorithms at the deep technological level combined with the use of Big Data technologies. Specifically, we present the ACTUS approach to standardizing the modeling of financial contracts in view of financial analysis, which provides a methodological concept together with a data standard and computational algorithms. We present a proof of concept of ACTUS-based financial analysis with real data provided by the European Central Bank. Our experimental results with respect to computational performance of this approach in an Apache Spark based Big Data environment show close to linear scalability. The chapter closes with implications for data science.
