About Pricing Partners
Set up by former professionals of the trading industry, Pricing Partners offers accurate solutions for derivatives products valuation, pricing tools and risk analytics. Pricing Partners delivers its solutions in two different means. Through Price-it® Online, a SaaS platform, Pricing Partners provides independent valuation from the vanilla to the most exotic financial products on most assets (Interest Rates, Fixed Income, Equity, Inflation, Credit, Foreign Exchange, Commodities, Life Insurance and Hybrid products). On the other hand, Pricing Partners develops and commercializes Price-it® Excel, an analytic and independent pricing library using a generic payoff language description which allows the pricing of virtually any financial derivatives. Price-it® also supports VaR, CVaR and the most common risk management tools. Pricing Partners masters the chain of valuation and develops its own pricing library and valuation platform. Its intrinsic knowledge and understanding of the pricing methodologies/models enable its clients to achieve highly accurate and reliable valuation on their derivatives books. Pricing Partners solutions can be used by investment banks, asset management firms, hedge funds, corporations, pension funds, fund administrators and audit firms.
Pricing Partners has also signed numerous partnerships to deliver its technology through local distributor like Belatos in Hong Kong, as well as with leading institutions like Thomson Reuters (for its pricing library integrated into Kondor+ Structured Products), Misys (for its pricing library integrated into Summit), CMA, Fitch Solutions or Lexifi. It is a Microsoft IDEES partner, an IBM, Sun, Datasynapse and ActiveEon partner.
