Pricing Partners Participates to Risk Magazine’s Roundtable
Paris-London: Pricing Partners (www.pricingpartners.com), the independent valuation expert and a world leader in mathematical models and analytics for derivatives and structured products, will participate in Risk Magazine’s Derivatives Valuation and Transparency forum in London, and will discuss and illustrate Pricing Partners’ expertise and outlook on the topic. The roundtable discussion is expected to be published in Risk magazine’s January/February edition and will be filmed for the Risk website.
The topics discussed included common roadblocks within the organization (such as problematic valuation data), ways to improve valuation data and various future expectations for financial institutions. A diverse group of speakers from the derivatives valuation community included independent valuation providers, data valuation and spreadsheets management firms. Pricing Partners was invited to promote discussion and filter new insights into the valuation community during the panel session. The opportunity to attend such a prominent event during these crucial times is evidence of Pricing Partners’ expertise and strong history of consistent market standards.
