Do you have an opinion about what product is better for market risk analytics Numerix, Fincad or others? Particularly for the calculation of xVAs and FRTB?
What do you think about building a system using quantlib? Have you used Open Source Risk Engine?
Keep in mind that I am talking about a medium regional bank (south america) without very complex derivatives (no exotics, mostly fixed income, IRS, CCS, FX options).

though I didn't use Open Source Risk Engine, it is based on QuantLib and Roland Lichters (one of the founder) is a core developer of QuantLib.

QuantLib is a very powerful weapon... heavy enough to to shoot your own foot.
However, my notes can help you to get started:

So if you are persistent and have time, OSRE can be the best solution, at least in the sense price/features trade-off. - Knowledge rather than Hope: A Book for Retail Investors and Mathematical Finance Students

I use Matlab and the compiler, it should handle most things. If not you write some code for it.
