Numerix CrossAsset Server Recognized by FTF Readers as Leading Enterprise Solution for Real-Time Derivatives Valuations, Market Risk & Counterparty Risk Management

New York, NY – July 1, 2013 – Numerix (, the leading provider of cross-asset analytics for derivatives valuations and risk management, today announced its inaugural award win for Best Derivative Operations Solution in the 3rd Annual FTF News Technology Innovation Awards 2013. The awards recognize the important contributions of individuals, companies, and technologies that have brought new innovation to the financial services post-trade, back- and middle-office operations over the past year. With a global client base consisting of senior level securities and operations professionals in over 30 countries FTF News offers a global insight focusing on a range of issues including risk management, derivatives and enterprise operations.

Regulatory reform has pushed risk management and its impact on the valuation process to the forefront driving the convergence of front, middle and back office operations.  Not only is there a demand for real-time valuations and aggregate risk analysis in managing counterparty credit risk – but there are significant requirements for efficient, consistent and transparent price calculation, control and risk reporting. Numerix has addressed this challenge with the introduction Numerix CrossAsset Server – a scalable, real-time calculation engine for the enterprise that brings together pricing and risk analytics, solving both valuation and risk problems.

Numerix CrossAsset Server: Transparency, Flexibility & Scalability

Numerix CrossAsset Server extends the rich features of the Numerix CrossAsset Library into an active, gridded server platform both sell-side and buy-side firms can use to compute pre-trade pricing, Mark-to-Market (MTM), Greeks, sensitivities, cash-flows, and both market risk (all flavors of VaR) and counterparty risk (CVA, DVA, PFE, FVA) for all enterprise requirements—from front office to compliance and regulatory reporting. With Numerix, clients now have the flexibility and transparency to define instruments, curves and risk scenarios, in addition to the ability to scale the performance in real-time – thus satisfying the needs of front office quants and structurers, while meeting the performance benchmarks for traders and risk management operations.
