Numerix Real-Time Calculation Engine Provides Scalability & Performance for Real-time Risk Management, Valuation and Reporting

New York, NY – October 10, 2013 – Numerix (, the leading provider of cross-asset analytics for derivatives valuations and risk management, today announces its award win for Best Innovation by an ISV – Regulatory Change in the 2nd annual awards for Asia hosted by FOW – Futures & Options World. Since its launch in 1982, FOW has been at the heart of the futures and options business and is essential reading for all those involved in the global derivatives and risk management industry.

As the capital markets continue to adapt to new regulations and their related implications, APAC market participants operating within the derivatives markets are significantly more concerned with the efficiency and accuracy of correct valuations with full incorporation of Counterparty Credit risk, funding costs, collateral requirements and new methodologies to discount derivatives. Realizing the impact valuation inaccuracies and poor hedging decisions can have on the balance sheet, the notion of achieving a single, enterprise view of risk has also grown, with institutions now trying to take a more holistic approach to risk management.
