'Buy-side' Interface Adds to SuperDerivatives' FX Options Pricing System
SuperDerivatives has launched a new interface for its benchmark currency options pricing system, specifically designed to meet the needs of its buy-side and sales desk users. The new interface enables clients to configure SuperDerivatives to show the level of information needed to price and trade options and can be switched to in real time or used as the default mode. SuperDerivatives believes the introduction of the simplified version will encourage more buy-side users to price and then use options to hedge the foreign exchange exposure. In addition, SuperDerivatives has launched a service that will license its pricing engine for revaluation and risk management purposes. ‘Accurate assessment of the value and risk measures of derivative portfolios is an industry-wide concern,’ said chief executive David Gershon.
