SuperDerivatives, a leading cloud-based financial information, derivatives technology and trade execution provider, has launched a comprehensive market data and analytics package to support the growing demand for credit index options from the buy-side.
SuperDerivatives offers volatility surfaces for a wide range of credit indices, including the iTraxx Main Index, Crossover Index and Senior Financials index, as well as the CDX IG and High Yield indices. The credit options offering is supported on both SDX, SuperDerivatives' leading multi-asset front office system, and DGX, the real-time market data, news and analysis platform. The company now offers a full solution for market data, pricing, trading, risk management, intraday and end of day market data and revaluation of credit options together with its rich offering for all other credit and structured credit products.
David Ezra, Head of Credit Derivatives at SuperDerivatives comments: "Over the last year we have seen a significant demand from the buy-side for accurate market data and analytics to enable more effective hedging and management of credit index options and other credit derivatives products. In the current market conditions, companies are acutely aware of the need to monitor and manage the risk associated with these complex products very closely. So far over 20 asset managers and hedge funds are already using the service for pricing and revaluation.
"SuperDerivatives is a key player in multi-asset market data and valuation, and the addition of support for credit and structured credit derivative products has now strengthened our offering even further. We aim to offer a one-stop-shop for institutions looking for cost-effective cloud-based solutions that enable them to step up the effectiveness of their multi-asset derivatives operations."
