RiskArt S.p.A., a specialist consultancy in bespoke solutions for back office administration of structured derivatives, has released version 5 of its RiskArt Derivatives Management suite.
The software provides banks, investment funds, asset management companies, local authorities and other organisations that trade in structured derivates with operational, administrative, accounting, cash flow and compliance support for structured derivatives - in particular, market traded and over the counter (OTC) derivatives. It is very flexible and versatile enabling it to handle a wide range of including equity instruments, debt securities, structured derivatives, financial deposits, etc.
This latest version uses Visual Studio 2008 compiler to keep it up to date with the latest technologies, state-of-the art techniques and functionalities. As a result, Version 5 has significantly faster processing of data along with even more extensive parameterisation functions that enable new financial instruments to be incorporated within a matter of a couple of weeks without affecting the source code. This enhanced solution is highly customisable, very stable and no regression tests are needed.
"RiskArt's whole philosophy is very customer centric with a huge emphasis on personal service on an ongoing basis," explained Franco Marinotti, RiskArt's CEO. "The interfacing with customers is done by our senior functional analysts that all have strong, practical backgrounds in financial derivatives and academia so they understand the cash flow dynamics of each instrument and their impact along the whole of the process. Customers get the benefit of our decades of financial knowhow embedded into the software to create a bespoke solution for their precise needs that also meets all the latest compliance requirements. Our in-depth specialisation on derivatives also means that our bespoke solutions are very more cost effective compared with other offerings as well as being one of the fastest to adapt to change."
