Many Asset Managers invest in derivatives or structured products, or utilize derivative overlays to enhance investment returns or provide downside protection.  However the derivative marketplace has changed since the financial crisis, as new regulations like Dodd-Frank and EMIR move many OTC derivatives to central clearers or trading on exchanges, and Asset Managers must adapt to the changing market dynamics in order to effectively manage their derivative portfolios.

Numerix has the solutions needed to help Asset Managers deal with the complexities of the new marketplace, providing them with the accurate, fast and flexible analytics they need to price and manage the risk of their derivative trades.
