Housing associations create a multi-year budget, which showcases the expected development of the financial results. An essential component of the multi-year budget is identifying the financial risks in the balance sheet and cash flow trends.

In WALS you have the possibility to create and compare different investment plans and analyse your financial metrics. However, the following questions, among others, remain unanswered:

  • What are the chances of breaching your Golden Rules like Interest Cover or Gearing in year x?
  • What are the main risk drivers of your plan?

The risk management module (RM) helps to find the rights answers. It enables you to analyse a large number of macroeconomic scenarios. The outcomes form a range of potential results for all your financial metrics, both numerically and graphically (see figure EBITDA MRI interest cover).

That way it is possible to say something about how likely certain parameters will deviate from the used set of expectations, and how the correlation of different macroeconomic indicators increases or decreases risks. Helping you to identify the main risk drivers for multiple investment plans that breach your Golden rules.
