Quantifi’s quarterly INsight newsletter explores the most current market & regulatory developments.
Reflections from Quantifi CEO, Rohan Douglas
On heading back into the UK office after more than a year of working from home, it was a bit like going into a time capsule. Notes on the desk, items in the drawer – all left on the assumption of a quick return to the office after a short lockdown. I’ve heard of others having the same experience.
Adjusting to some sense of ‘new normal’ in the UK, it’s a chance to appreciate the things we used to take for granted. For me personally, I was delighted to be able to take part in the London Marathon after a two-year hiatus. It was the largest mass participation event since lockdown; an amazing experience and inspiring to see so many runners raise money for a diverse range of charities, including my chosen charity, Brain Research UK.
While the capital markets have performed well through the pandemic, there remains a level of uncertainty with inherent challenges and opportunities. As firms look to 2022, they’re rethinking technology strategies in response to the change in market and social behaviours. An increased focus on ESG, accelerating cost reduction and increasing fintech adoption and innovation are some of the themes driving this change.
The sustained growth that Quantifi has experienced during the pandemic is a testament to the strength of our solution and our commitment to partner with our clients. We have maintained a strategic focus on technology innovation with our extensive adoption of data science and a cloud-native technology stack. This edition of InSight includes an article on the work we have done with Intel to accelerate derivatives valuations by 700x with the use of machine learning.
This issue also includes findings from a recent survey on ‘The Evolution of Credit Trading’ that was conducted during a recent Quantifi webinar featuring Celent and 7 Chord. The webinar was part of a series of thought leadership pieces from Quantifi on the credit markets, including the impact of COVID-19. Also in this issue is an interview with ComTech Advisory on the trends creating interest in risk management in commodities.
I’m excited about what 2022 has in store for us all and I believe it’ll be a year of growth and new opportunities. By understanding and embracing our clients’ business challenges and goals we will be able to build stronger and lasting relationships.
Accelerate Derivatives Valuation 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. The successful use of Artificial Neural Network models (ANNs) to model and deliver real-time pricing with accuracy is considered equivalent to conventional approaches such as numerical integration and Monte Carlo techniques.
Industry Survey: The Evolution of Credit Trading
This survey was conducted during a webinar on “The Evolution of Credit Trading: Technology, Analytics, and Data,” hosted by Quantifi featuring Celent and 7 Chord Inc.
