Oracle Capital Selects Quantifi for Valuation and Risk Management of New Structured Credit Fund

Quantifi, a provider of analytics, trading and risk management solutions for the global capital markets, today announced that Oracle Capital, a hedge fund start-up founded by two former Lehman Brothers traders, has selected Quantifi XL for the pricing and analysis of their structured credit portfolio.

Founded in 2009, Oracle Capital is based in Hong Kong and focuses on fixed income products, particularly in the areas of credit, fixed income derivatives and securitisation. The initial fund invests in products that reference corporate credit risk, including cash and synthetic CDOs. As the firm was starting up, Oracle explored a range of options to fulfil their needs, including developing an internal solution as well as third-party vendor solutions. After careful review, Oracle selected Quantifi for its robust coverage of a wide range of complex instruments.

Leon Hindle, Chief Investment Officer at Oracle Capital, commented, “Valuation and risk management are key components in everything we do, and it became clear that Quantifi was the best fit for our business. We have been extremely impressed with the sophistication and power of their products, as well as their exceptional support. Quantifi has been instrumental in our drive to swiftly and efficiently go to market and develop creative trading strategies for our maiden fund – Oracle Investment Fund – allowing us take full advantage of current market opportunities.”

“I am delighted with Oracle Capital’s decision to select Quantifi. They are a sophisticated shop founded by two ex-Lehman traders, and we look forward to working with them and helping support their growth. With our already outstanding reputation within the hedge fund community, Oracle Capital offers Quantifi the opportunity to assist a start-up in establishing a footprint in the marketplace,” Rohan Douglas, CEO of Quantifi, commented.

Quantifi XL is an extensive suite of add-in functions for Excel. By utilising advanced numerical methods, Quantifi XL can be deployed swiftly and achieves fast pricing – providing financial institutions with access to sophisticated pricing and risk analysis of credit products from within Excel.

Douglas continued, “Adding Oracle Capital to our Asian client base is a clear indication of our rapid global expansion. Our commitment to product innovation means we are well positioned to satisfy the demands of the global capital markets and capitalise on these opportunities.”
