SimCorp Integrates FINCAD Derivatives Analytics
FINCAD and SimCorp have entered into an agreement to integrate FINCAD’s derivatives pricing software into SimCorp’s investment management enterprise solution, Dimension. The companies say that the partnership offers an advanced theoretical pricing capability for new asset classes. The global agreement extends SimCorp Dimension’s integrated pricing mechanism to encompass a wider range of derivatives than ever before. These include credit derivatives and instruments implemented within the system’s new XpressInstruments framework, such as exotic derivatives, structured products and hybrids. These can now be valued directly from within SimCorp Dimension using FINCAD’s advanced theoretical pricing solutions. As a result, SimCorp Dimension customers can eliminate data manipulation tasks required to price such positions and thus reduce operational risk while simultaneously improving efficiency.
