Numerix took top five honors in the commodities, equities, foreign exchange, interest rates and hybrids / cross-asset categories in the pricing and risk analytics sections of the survey.

Of those major vendors also mentioned as being among the top five, Numerix has existing partnerships with all four. The strategic integration of Numerix’s pricing libraries into the trading and risk systems of its vendor-partners, along with the firm’s ability to provide pricing and analytics for the most complex products, were important contributors to Numerix’s top five ranking in the survey.

“We could not be happier with the outcome of the Asia Risk Survey and to also be ranked solidly among our peers and vendor-partners,” said Steven R. O’Hanlon, President and COO of Numerix. “The survey results serve to validate our strategic objective to align strongly with our partners in the industry, and to provide our Asian customers with access to the independent pricing models they demand to create a sound and transparent valuation and risk management process for even the most complex instruments.”
