Executive Summary

Grid computing continues to hold promise for the high-availability of a wide range of computational systems and techniques. It is suggested that Grids will attain greater acceptance by a larger audience of commercial end-users if binding Service Level Agreements (SLAs) are provided. The authors discuss this Grid commoditization and in particular the use of Grid technologies for financial risk analysis. They also consider the potential formulation of the Grid Economy as a commodity market with due consideration for trading and hedging of risk, options, futures and structured products. Their aim is to predict availability and capability to introduce risk analysis for Grids.
