New York, NY - November 24, 2009 - Numerix (, the leading independent service provider of award winning cross-asset analytics for the structuring, pricing and risk evaluation of derivatives and structured products, today announced that Credit Magazine has recognized the Numerix Credit Trader workbook application with a Credit Technology Innovation Award for 2009.

The Innovation Awards recognize key developments in technology over the past year in the credit sector, particularly in response to the challenges in risk management, pricing and valuation.  The awards single out individual companies that provide the most unique and pioneering solutions to help financial organizations navigate the credit markets.

“The Credit Technology Innovation Award recognition is not only a testament to Numerix and our  development team, but also a strategic validation of our trader workbook offerings that bring the power and flexibility of the Numerix CrossAsset platform to the front office. We have built an application that is more flexible because it’s focused on traders’ needs and takes into consideration their work flow requirements. With Credit Trader users can confidently bring complex trades to the market,” said Steven R. O’Hanlon, President and Chief Operating Officer at Numerix.
