Partnership with FINCAD
FINCAD and Fidessa have a well-established relationship which has been in place since 2005. FINCAD's industry standard analytics library, which provides comprehensive coverage and transparency with its extensive documentation, was previously integrated into the derivatives module of Fidessa's buy-side product, but is now available across the entire solution to calculate prices, sensitivities and cash flows of derivatives and fixed income instruments.
"We're delighted to be able to roll out [FINCAD Analytics] across our buy-side suite. This new phase of the partnership with FINCAD presents a real leap forward in fixed income and cash management functionality for our clients. A further benefit of this relationship is that by integrating third party analytics we meet the necessary compliance standards for international markets."
