Council of Europe Development Bank Implements Bloomberg MARS Front Office

The Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB) has adopted its Bloomberg’s Multi-Asset Risk System, MARS Front Office, to enable the bank to assess the impact of trading activity on the risk profile of its books.

MARS Front Office will provide the CEB with consolidated pricing and risk analytics, including pre-trade and daily post-trade valuations, Greeks and scenario analysis. The bank will also use Bloomberg’s new ‘PnL Explain’ reports, which show fluctuations in market value and the contributions of the various underlying market factors.

The CEB is a long-standing customer of Bloomberg and also uses BVAL Derivatives, a pricing service that provides independent valuation for derivatives, and MARS XVA for counterparty risk management.
