FNX adds real-time pricing for structured bonds and emerging market debt

03 February 2004  |  568 views  |  0

FNX Limited (FNX), a leader in the delivery of technology solutions to the global financial markets, announced today the release of the latest innovations in its Sierra system for structured bonds and emerging market debt.

The new, highly sophisticated, module allows the user to create fully customisable structured bonds using multiple asset classes and offers a complete straight through processing solution (STP). FNX is the first vendor to offer such a product.

The Structured Bond module is developed for desks using complex structures that could consist of a combination of interest rate, FX and equity and may include embedded options that allow the issuers to call them before maturity. Each structure could consist of multiple legs, different payoff formulas and user-definable fields. The user has the choice of using either proprietary pricing models or pricing models provided by FNX. Since the system is fully integrated with FNX's Sierra solution, full STP functionality is also available to process the transactions.

This new module addresses the latest developments in the market. As the complexity and volume of structured trades continues to increase, the users are no longer able to accept the spreadsheet- based "systems" that even now are still commonly used in the financial industry. Spreadsheet-based systems are notoriously error prone and require extensive manual re-keying of information. What is increasingly being demanded is full STP capabilities. This module was developed in conjunction with one of the largest fixed income trading desks in the world to address those needs. One of the primary aims was to create an environment for users with the authority to build complex structures where they could do so with ease and to manage events throughout the trade lifecycle to eliminate operational risk.

Jim Dennelly, head of product management at FNX said, "We are very pleased with this new solution. It offers tremendous functionality for our users, allowing them to book, price and process sophisticated structures in real-time. We are the first vendor to offer a fully automated STP Structured Products Module and are getting tremendous interest from potential clients."
