CHALLENGES

Why Quantifi?

At Quantifi, we understand the challenges that commodity trading firms face, and we offer solutions that can help them transform their business.

Want to save time and automate manual processes?

Manual, bespoke processes are slow and error prone. Commodity trading firms are looking to automate processes so they can reduce costs and respond faster to volatile markets.

Quantifi automates complex tasks to reduce operational risk, eliminate redundant processes and increase resource efficiency. These automated processes also speed up decision making, allowing firms to respond faster to markets events and mitigate losses.

Need to know accurate exposure to a counterparty at any point in time?

Get better answers, faster. Quantifi’s CCRMS provides a consolidated, real-time view of exposures and risk globally across the firm.

Reduce risk and complexity by monitoring credit risk concentrations by counterparties, commodities, business lines, countries etc. in real-time and conduct real-time credit line checks on new trades added to existing portfolios.

Managing and maintaining multiple systems?

Global commodity trading firms must manage an array of counterparty risks. Historically, firms have relied on multiple tools for counterparty credit risk management, including Excel spreadsheets, for exposure calculations and reporting, and email to communicate credit decisions.

Quantifi’s single, fully-integrated solution provides enterprise-wide credit and counterparty risk management.

Quantifi’s broad functionality reduces the need for multiple systems.

Looking to implement a consistent counterparty evaluation methodology?

Quantifi’s CCRMS was built in collaboration with world-leading commodity trading firms. This collaboration resulted in a solution designed to standardise counterparty evaluation enterprise-wide.

Quantifi is a single solution for all participants in the credit decisions and risk management processes and facilitates a consistent credit policy across the enterprise. Users can model counterparty hierarchies and corresponding exposure rollup rules and have access to counterparty scoring and limit assignment based on multiple methodologies.

Difficulty managing data?

Providing access to the right data and analytics to the right people is crucial to commodity trading firms. Quantifi integrates with data science technology to provide cloud native, scalable performance for large data sets.

Rich ETL capabilities seamlessly integrated with existing data repositories and third-party data providers.

COFCO International, a world-class integrated global agribusiness, selected Quantifi to help monitor, manage and report their credit & counterparty risk. COFCO recognised that Quantifi could help with their plans to grow into a new global force in agricultural trading.
