VANCOUVER, British Columbia and DUBLIN, Sept. 25, 2012 -- FINCAD, the leading provider for innovative OTC valuations, announced today that a Tier 2 European bank has expanded its use of FINCAD Analytics Suite for Excel. FINCAD Analytics Suite was selected because its comprehensive, cross-asset coverage allows the bank to easily price its entire portfolio, which includes interest rate and foreign exchange derivatives.
The bank's derivatives portfolio includes cap-floors, Bermudan and European swaptions, foreign exchange swaptions and knock-out options. It currently uses FINCAD Analytics Suite in its trading department to price these instruments, specifically using curve-bootstrapping. Looking to restructure its trading team, the bank decided to expand its use of FINCAD to take advantage of the comprehensive analytics library and efficiently price its derivatives portfolio.
"When I co-founded FINCAD more than 20 years ago, we wanted to build professional software that was not only easy to use, but also reliable, accurate and fast.
