Yuanta Financial Holdings Selects NumeriX Excel for Valuations and Risk Management

Yuanta Financial Holdings has deployed NumeriX Excel within its risk department to provide analytics and pricing for derivatives and structured products. Via the implementation of the solution, the Taiwan-based firm hopes to more accurately price and calculate mark-to-model prices as well as measure the risk for these products, says Connie Lin, chief risk officer at Yuanta.

According to the vendor, Yuanta now has access to the industry standard analytics and models of NumeriX 7.2 to accurately price financial products across all asset classes. Moreover, Yuanta is also planning to extend the relationship with NumeriX to manage and monitor risk exposure across its entities.

Lin explains: “We chose to embed NumeriX tools within our organisation in order to help our entities better manoeuvre the volatility in the market today. We are delighted to see that the applications are easy to use and the support specific to Asia is critical to our success in managing risk in today’s market.”

Steven O’Hanlon, president and chief operating officer at NumeriX, adds: “As Taiwan and the APAC region’s derivatives market has matured, it is critical that investment organisations have the capabilities to closely monitor risk exposure internally for pricing of these complex products.”
