Abstract: The state of data in finance makes near-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 present the ACTUS approach of standardizing the modeling of financial contracts in view of financial analysis. Our approach provides a methodological concept together with a data standard and computational algorithms needed to overcome these limitations. We present a proof-of-concept of ACTUS-based financial analysis with real data provided by the European Central Bank. Our performance results in an Apache Spark based cloud computing environment show close to linear scalability of our approach.
