Quantifi & Intel Demonstrate How Artificial Intelligence Can Be Used to Accelerate Derivatives Valuations

29 July 2021

Quantifi and Intel have published a joint whitepaper that explores how artificial intelligence (AI) can be used to accelerate derivatives valuations by 700x. Intel and Quantifi have demonstrated that accurate, real-time pricing for a portfolio of derivatives can be generated locally or in the cloud using AI technology running on 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors.  read more

Intel & Quantifi Accelerate Derivative Valuations by 700x Using AI on Intel Processors

Portfolio managers and traders that use OTC derivatives often lack an accurate real-time view of the valuations and risk of their derivative positions, especially when trading exotic derivatives. Obtaining real-time risk metrics for a portfolio of derivatives has been challenging, as the commonly used valuation techniques for these products are computationally expensive and require significant machine time. Portfolio valuations and risk calculations typically require overnight runs in a data center or the cloud. This whitepaper reports the successful use of Artificial Neural Network models by Quantifi to model and deliver real-time pricing with an accuracy considered equivalent to conventional approaches such as numerical integration and Monte Carlo methods.

The IBOR Transition: Challenges and the Road Ahead

Tuesday, October 13, 2020

by Quantifi & Irina Ursachi

Interbank Offered Rates (IBORs) play a pivotal role in the functioning of financial markets. The transition away from IBOR represents one of the biggest challenges facing financial services firms. The reform has been ongoing for more than two years, during which market-infrastructure providers, regulators, buy- and sell-side firms and trade associations have merged their efforts in steering some of the most complex transformation programmes the financial industry has undertaken. This paper explores the development of the IBOR reform. The first part details the status quo, some of the various aspects and challenges involved and outlines the effects of migrating from IBORs to risk-free rates. The second part of the paper outlines the preparations firms need to make to accommodate a smooth transition.

Preparing for the IBOR Transition: Technology and Models

Thursday, October 1, 2020

The IBOR transition impacts almost every part of the financial services industry including banking, capital markets, insurance and asset management. The imminent retirement of IBOR has forced financial institutions to conduct an end-to-end inventory of IBOR exposure. This should cover the full range of processes, models and systems, including pricing, valuation, risk management and booking. This process has revealed a number of challenges for financial markets participants, with many having to rethink their operations and technology infrastructure and adopting new technologies to help with the transition.  Read More
