Risk Adjustment (ASN00022.1)
The recent global banking crisis has brought focus onto the practices of financial transactions and saw changes in the overall regulatory landscape. The ripple effect of this event meant that practices in the management of risk and exposure in portfolios were similarly affected and required adaptation and innovation. The present data set contained a list of the patents/applications filed during this period, with the earliest case filed around the period leading up to the collapse of Bear Stearns in early 2008.
Mediums of Exchange & Related Systems (ASN00024.1)
Historically, a monetary system where its standard of exchange retained its value well across time would seem to be essential towards sustaining economic growth. Towards that objective, this collection aims to cover what may be enabling technologies targeted for the introduction and implementation of new mediums of exchange within existing monetary systems. Included in the collection are technologies which describe the form of each individual unit of exchange and its manufacture, the digital frameworks for managing the distribution of units, and the financial systems through which these units may be deployed. The collection also included technologies which were patented before the global financial crisis began in the fall of 2008.
