We developed an R interface to use the ACTUS Algorithmic Contract Type Unified Standard.

The interface gives access to the most important contract types. The user can access

individual contracts and define a risk factor environment. The cash flow stream encoded

in the contract can be visualized. In addition, portfolios of contracts can be imported,

and a superstructure of accounts for the analysis can be defined.

The user can also carry out stress tests and Monte Carlo simulations.

In addition, a shiny app has been created that simulates a toy model of a financial systems

that allow the user a simple liquidity stress test.
