OTC Valuations (OTC Val) has appointed Paul Bergbusch as chief technology officer to lead the vendor’s efforts to introduce its next generation of solutions. He will be engaged in further expanding the coverage for structured products and exotic derivatives under the OTC Val portfolio and will be based in Vancouver.
