The Challenge 

With a complex infrastructure of proprietary and third party front and back office systems, a key challenge for the client was producing timely and accurate risk reporting.  Senior management within the firm required a consolidated view of risk and P&L to ensure an awareness of, and accountability for the risks taken across their multiple credit business units. To do this they required a solution that would provide a single view of exposure by taking input from the various systems.

Selection Process

In 2009, the client selected Quantifi as the front-office pricing tool for their Structured Credit business. Over the course of the next 2 years, their usage of Quantifi expanded and they adopted Quantifi's risk platform to provide them with a consolidated view of risk across their entire credit trading business.

 

Business Requirements

The client required a sophisticated system that would deliver independent, timely and consolidated risk reporting and seamlessly integrate with their complex environment. Key requirements included accurate risk analytics, consolidated intraday reporting, real-time trade interface, mulit-currency support in valuation and reporting, and a cost effective implementation.

Business Outcome

With Quantifi, the client has access to open, scalable solution that automates the day-to-day valuation and risk management processes. Quantifi's proven, market leading models provide stable and accurate results in a fraction of the time previously possible.
