Pricing Partners and ActiveEon Provide a High Performance Solution for the Valuation of Financial Derivative Products

Pricing Partners, the independent valuation expert and a world leader in mathematical models and analytics for derivatives and structured products, announced today that Pricing Partners established a strong technology partnership with ActiveEon www.activeeon.com to provide an ultra rapid solution for the valuation of derivative products. This partnership is based on the mathematic models for valuations of Pricing Partners and the technology of distributed computing from ActiveEon relying on the groundbreaking innovative ProActive Parallel Suite ® originated from INRIA.

This solution, ‘Price-it® Excel Accelerated by ProActive’, will remarkably increase the computing power of Price-it® Excel and thus considerably reduce the required time for the valuation of portfolio of hundreds even thousands of complex products. It will benefit from the effects of scales by using the maximum of available resources within the company’s clients. The grid computing solution, from desktop to cluster, guarantees indeed the loading time together with ultra fast response and meanwhile enables the assessment of effective computing power in order to achieve a significant time saving.

Eric Benhamou, CEO of Pricing Partners comments “Pricing Partners’ valuation models are highly accurate; however, they can take time in calculation. This partnership with ActiveEon, which offers a very innovative solution, enables us now to provide our clients a solution that could reduce dramatically the computing time, and hence responds to a more obvious need in terms of computing power. Therefore, I am very pleased with this partnership that allows us to deliver to our clients a very high quality service.”

Integration with Price-it® extends ActiveEon’s leading enterprise grid technologies with the ability to deliver ‘Price-it Excel accelerated by ProActive’. This fully integrated solution should be very valuable to Pricing Partners’ existing and future clients for sizing the computing power effectively and rapidly.”
