SuperDerivatives, the benchmark for derivatives pricing and the leading provider of multi-asset front-office systems, risk management, revaluation and online options trading solutions, today announced that KPMG in Turkey has chosen its real-time, multi-asset options pricing and analytics platform for foreign currencies and interest rates.
KPMG in Turkey joins other "Big 4" accounting offices in standardizing on SuperDerivatives' platform for the accurate verification of its audit clients' portfolios. This allows KPMG auditors to ensure that their clients adhere to standards such as IAS 39, FAS 133, FAS 157 and the upcoming FAS 161 which strictly demands "fair market value" pricing of derivatives.
KPMG in Turkey is a member firm of KPMG, a global network of professional firms providing audit, tax, and advisory services, operating in 145 countries.
"Both external auditors and internal risk controllers find that, given the recent financial crisis and increasingly stringent reporting regulations, they demand precise, market-relevant valuation and risk analysis tools," said Ed Crouch, global head of corporate development and strategy, SuperDerivatives. "Determining the correct price of derivatives can only be achieved with well chosen, verified market data, in conjunction with a scientifically sound model and continuous calibration to the actual traded market."
SuperDerivatives' real-time pricing and analytics platform is widely recognized as the de-facto standard for trading and managing options. It supports all major asset classes and instruments from vanillas to more than 100 types of popular exotics and structures as well as virtually any traded currency pair - both major and emerging. All SuperDerivatives' platforms are fueled by the company's award-winning market data which is independently sourced from a qualified global network of rate providers.
