FINCAD Introduces New Analytics Suite 2009
Today’s volatile financial markets require reliable, market-tested solutions that are flexible enough to deal with changing market conditions and the need for better pricing and risk management. To address this need, FINCAD has launched two new products: FINCAD Analytics Suite 2009 for Excel and FINCAD Analytics Suite 2009 for Developers. These products replace FINCAD’s flagship products FINCAD XL and FINCAD Developer, and include a new technology platform that accelerates the ability to add new instrument coverage.
FINCAD says the capabilities in its new Analytics Suite 2009 address current market needs with expanded instrument coverage in the areas of credit derivatives, volatility instruments, interest rate derivatives and exotic options. New models include the SABR stochastic volatility model and a cross-currency hybrid IR/FX model with FX volatility skew.
“In times where asset valuations are elusive, users should welcome efforts by vendors to develop instrument coverage capability, expand pricing functionality, and increase transparency of valuation functions.” said Dr. Mayiz Habbal, Senior VP of Capital Markets at Celent, an international financial strategy consultancy.
