London and New York, January 23, 2017 - Quantifi, a provider of risk, analytics and trading solutions, today announced it has been shortlisted in the Commodity Business Awards 2016 for Trading, Risk & Portfolio Management (Excellence in Agricultural & Softs) and Commodity Market Development (Excellence in Risk Mitigation). The awards, run by commodities Now magazine, identify commodity firms and technology providers that have had a significant impact on the commodity markets.
Global commodity trading firms operate in an inherently risky environment, with increased market volatility and competitive pressures. This environment creates significant counterparty risk management challenges, as the geographic spread and sheer number of counterparties makes it difficult for firms to implement a consistent credit policy. 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. This approach has its drawbacks. To address these, firms are exploring new integrated risk management tools that provide advanced analytic, automate processes, and simplify data management.
"Global commodity trading firms want to take a forward-thinking approach to counterparty
credit risk management. Leveraging our expertise in this space we are able to provide a solution
tailored to the specific needs of commodity firms globally"
Avadhut Naik, Head of Solutions, Quantifi
