Wachovia Chooses Asset Control for Market Risk Management
Wachovia Corporation has selected Asset Control to manage price data for risk management operations within its corporate investment bank. The implementation is scheduled to be in production in the first quarter of 2005. “The Asset Control technology being deployed on this project will improve our risk management and research capability,” said Barry Fenwick, divisional information officer of Wachovia Corporate Investment Bank. “The new platform will allow us to leverage our comprehensive market history and provide additional analytical services to our clients.” The Wachovia system will be configured from the AC Plus modular framework to gather and manage snapshot, end-of-day and time-series pricing information for interest rates, credit spreads, equities, FX and commodities. The Asset Control solution was evaluated in proof-of-concept testing and will be delivered in a turnkey implementation, including feed handlers for multiple data vendors.
