Quantifi, a leading provider of analytics, trading and risk management solutions for the global OTC markets, today announced that VTB Capital has licensed Quantifi XL as their front-office tool for OTC analytics, pricing and portfolio valuation.

The company focuses on arranging operations in the debt, equity, global commodities markets, developing investment and asset management and advising clients on M&A and ECM deals in Russia and abroad.

Quantifi has already reduced our operational costs and increased our business flexibility by allowing us to focus internal development on other strategic projects.”

Quantifi XL provides pricing and structuring for even the most complex OTC products in a familiar and flexible Excel environment. Comprehensive, powerful, and easy-to-use functions cover the simplest calculations to the most advanced pricing and sensitivity analysis.
