Why Attend?
Learn how capital markets players are leveraging the combined power of MATLAB and Numerix CrossAsset to create rich quantitative modeling sandboxes with the robust controls and structure of enterprise level analytics.

Kevin Shea, MathWorks | Bill Dwyer, Numerix

For capital markets firms, spreadsheets can deliver flexibility for quants and a way to innovate and deliver new products or models that existing systems can’t support. But when it comes time to expose those efforts to the rigors of regulators or deliver business at scale, an enterprise grade solution is in order.

MathWorks, the world leading developer of mathematical computing software, and Numerix, the leader in risk management and quantitative analytics for the capital markets, have teamed up to provide an integrated approach to delivering innovative analytics at enterprise level.

The Numerix Interface in MATLAB’s Financial Instruments Toolbox integrates the best-in-class MATLAB development environment with Numerix’s award-winning quantitative modelling library. This interface empowers our joint customers with a flexible accelerated development environment for creating a broad variety of risk management and valuation analytics for OTC derivatives and securities.

This webinar provides case studies illustrating how capital market leaders are leveraging the Numerix Interface in MATLAB. And whether you’re familiar with Numerix and MATLAB or new to them, we also provide a demonstration of how these power-house solutions can be utilized together for rapid financial modeling.
