Fincad Partners with Cerebra to Help Buy Side Clients Integrate Derivatives Analytics with Front Office Systems

Share article

Fincad, a provider of derivatives analytics, and Cerebra, a London-based front office technology consultancy, today announced that Cerebra has joined the Fincad Alliance Programme. The new partnership enables Cerebra to leverage its expertise with Fincad’s analytics library in implementation projects with large buy side clients to meet their derivatives valuations needs.

Cerebra’s experienced consultants operate exclusively in the investment management industry implementing complex front office systems. By including Fincad derivatives analytics early in projects, Cerebra is improving its agile process, a methodology which allows it to build systems in an iterative fashion delivering the highest value for its clients in the shortest time.

“We have enriched our clients’ data by creating a connector between the Fincad analytics library and our clients’ front office systems,” said Amrish Ganatra, founding partner, Cerebra. “This gives our clients independent valuations of their derivatives and fixed income securities, allowing them to compare numbers with their brokers. We are also excited at the prospect of working with Fincad’s new object-oriented library, F3 SDK. The new analytics library is well ahead of the curve.”

Fincad’s comprehensive analytics library provides clients with an independent source for valuing and measuring risk of OTC derivatives and fixed income securities. All the models available through the library are extensively documented and provide a transparent view of the pricing and risk analytics.

“With the growing demand for integrated derivatives analytics, we are pleased to partner with Cerebra which has the implementation expertise and experience to integrate Fincad analytics with front office systems,” said Amar Budhiraja, director, Fincad Alliance Programme.
