Numerix Aligns Trading and Risk across the Enterprise Solving Compute and Quantitative Challenges

New York, NY – December 11, 2013 – Numerix, ( the leading provider of cross-asset analytics for derivatives valuations and risk management, today announced that it has won first place in the Risk Magazine Technology Awards 2013 for the individual categories of “Enterprise Risk Management” - Credit Valuation Adjustment (CVA), Debt Valuation Adjustment (DVA) and Funding Valuation Adjustment (FVA) calculations and “Pricing Analytics” - Structured Products. Numerix also placed in all individual asset class categories.

“We’ve kept focus on core capabilities in derivatives pricing, while dedicating significant time and energy to enhancing the accuracy, performance and scalability of enterprise-wide risk calculations,” said Steven R. O’Hanlon, Chief Executive Officer and President of Numerix. “We’ve solidified our industry leading position in Counterparty Credit Risk, while evolving to accommodate front office risk in innovative ways.  As pre-trade checks have become a risk management necessity we’ve adapted our analytics to meet real-time requirements helping clients reduce capital charges and maintain profitability on each deal.”

He continues: “Risk reporting is no longer confined to batch runs overnight across silos of the trading operation – today we operate in a real-time environment putting an even greater emphasis on computational efficiency. The marriage of risk and trading also means these calculations are having impact in a pre-trade environment – where counterparty valuations and elements of funding dynamics are becoming pre-trade decision-making calculations. At Numerix we’ve addressed these challenges head-on delivering solutions that are fully virtualized and cloud ready, or server based. Our products are capable of acting upon hundreds of thousands of positions with real time performance, reflecting how risk analytics are changing.”
