Accelerating Performance for Risk Management of Complex Derivative Portfolios

James Jockle, SVP Marketing, Numerix

When it comes to meeting the regulatory and computational demands of risk management in the post-crisis world, many financial and insurance companies have come to realize that the old way of doing things is just not going to work anymore.

Enter the cloud…

Numerix, a leading provider of cross-asset analytics for derivatives valuations and risk management, and a Microsoft Managed Partner, is now leveraging the cloud to address the colossal compute power and big data demands surrounding real-time risk analytics.  With its new burst-to-Windows Azure capability, Numerix Portfolio harnesses the cloud to tackle the quantitative, computational and technological challenges of calculating advanced risk measures on today’s computationally intensive, complex derivative portfolios.

Numerix Portfolio’s burst-to-Azure deployment scenario provides a seamless, cost-effective, and time saving solution for firms that need to assess and analyze risk, more frequently and more granularly.  Access to the right answer faster could be the cure to all of our sleepless nights.

According to WatersTechnology’s Max Bowie in his recent Inside Market Data article,   “Officials say that leveraging Microsoft’s cloud not only enables firms to tap into on-demand resources as needed, but also offers better economics than buying, testing, installing and maintaining dedicated hardware on-site, and enables them to meet regulatory timeframes by being able to run calculations faster than on existing equipment.”  [i]
