Numerix Oneview Leading Hedge provides a production platform for end-to-end risk management and the hedging of life and annuity products—most notably Variable Annuities and Fixed Indexed Annuities. 

Providing a stochastic modeling framework that is risk neutral and market consistent, Numerix Oneview Leading Hedge can be used for capital calculations, product pricing and ongoing valuations, trading and hedging, and regulatory and accounting compliance.  Its industry leading simulation techniques along with optimized compilations of client’s business logic lead to dramatically faster run times, while its revolutionary “scriptlet” technology enables rapid product development and customization.

“I believe Numerix [Oneview] Leading Hedge has the fastest run-time while also being the most flexible projection software available, as well as being relatively easy to learn and use.”

- Hunt Blatz, Vice President and Head of Model Development, Transamerica Capital Management
