Asset Control to Deliver Enriched Price Construction, Curves Leveraging FINCAD’s Analytics Library

Asset Control, the world-wide leader in financial data management solutions, is partnering with FINCAD to offer mutual customers enhanced valuation and analytics for fixed income, derivatives and curves firm-wide through integration between Asset Control’s AC Plus data management platform and FINCAD’s industry leading financial analytical library.

Accurate and consistent financial valuation analytics alongside prices are crucial in order for a firm’s risk, compliance and trading functions to operate effectively and efficiently using the same set of data. Integrating this data with individual financial applications is both time-consuming and cost intensive. Asset Control’s interface with FINCAD’s analytics will give customers direct access to FINCAD’s library from within AC Plus.

As a result, AC Plus and FINCAD will provide customers with a single source of calculations and analytics data which can then be distributed throughout the organization, giving firms valuation and analytics accuracy while ensuring uniform data for multiple portfolio management, trading, accounting and risk applications. In addition, broadening investment options becomes significantly easier and faster with immediate capabilities supporting instrument modeling, valuation and data distribution.

“We are very pleased to welcome Asset Control to the FINCAD Alliance Program. Precise and reliable curve construction for derivative valuations is all about quality data and robust analytics,” said Amar Budhiraja, director of the FINCAD Alliance Program. “Our clients will now have the ability to use FINCAD’s powerful financial analytics with Asset Control’s robust data management solutions for enterprise-level risk measurement and pricing consistency across multi-asset portfolios.”

Phil Lynch, president and chief executive officer at Asset Control, said, “Businesses need to ensure that critical processes are fuelled by consistent, accurate and actionable data to gain efficiencies, to support decision-making, and to develop successful new and innovative strategies. Combining the power of two industry-leading platforms, Asset Control is leveraging the proven expertise of FINCAD to enrich pricing and curve functionality for our clients’ data generation and management capabilities.”
