Make educated decisions in a fraction of the time

We understand the importance of integrating our solutions with your existing systems. That’s why our Pricing and Valuation Solution has been designed with the flexibility to work alongside most software and hardware operating in financial institutions today. Another key benefit is its ability to operate in a diverse range of environments, whether that’s a single laptop or large distributed grids.

We’re known for being accommodating. Our Pricing and Valuation Solution is a prime example of this. This solution can thrive in nearly any structured product trading environment. It can be applied as equally to daily pricing of a single trade as it can for the pricing and risk metrics of thousands of deals.

The choice is yours. Extend and customise your system's functionality to quickly accommodate new and complex models, instruments and analytics. Choose whether or not you use Hull-White or BGM models, or run both models and compare the results for improved market intelligence.

Since this solution utilises the exceptional speed and power of the QuIC Engine™, your traders can price and hedge structured product transactions in far less time than was previously possible. With our QuIC Engine, your standard desktop computer can achieve levels of performance previously associated with supercomputers. Results arrive so quickly that you can run intra-day trade risk reporting and gain access to the complete risk picture before even pricing a trade.

    Combine your Market Risk and Credit Risk calculations into your results.
    Operate in the environment that best suits you.
    Gain the flexibility necessary to improve your market intelligence.
    Employ fewer, lower-cost processors.
    Adopt solutions that work alongside existing risk management solutions.
