FINCAD and Techila partner to enable derivatives analytics on Windows Azure


The calculations for pricing derivatives and measuring risk are becoming increasingly complex under regulatory reform. Collateral requirements and capital charges will not only transform the industry, but they also change the day-to-day pricing of instruments and portfolios. In order to capitalize on these changes, derivatives traders need a flexible and highly accurate approach to risk management.

FINCAD F3 is a leading-edge Enterprise Analytics platform, which offers ultimate flexibility to price and model any complex trade or portfolios. FINCAD and Techila Technologies have made the benefits of the power of the Windows Azure Cloud Platform by Microsoft available to F3 users securely, and without complexity. With Techila Distributed Computing Engine (TDCE) enabled, F3 users can benefit from unlimited scalability of computing performance supporting their business needs.

F3 is available as a desktop solution in Excel, MATLAB, and as a software development kit (SDK) with seamless integration between platforms and programming languages (C#, Java, and C++). The Techila Distributed Computing Engine enables powering F3 with cloud capacity, without specialist skills. The patented architecture and the built-in security of Techila Distributed Computing Engine provide superior ease of use.

“The Techila Distributed Computing Engine is based on an innovative self-managing architecture which facilitates a natural integration with the F3 SDK and Windows Azure cloud services. The easy design and support of our partners at Techila Technologies has helped to build a solid foundation for our joint offering in the cloud.” says Daniel Scott, VP of Marketing and Product Management at FINCAD.
