Generic trade and modeling representation (and separation of these concepts) is at the core of modern enterprise valuation and risk platform technology. This design addresses the complexity posed by modern pricing and risk challenges. By remaining completely generic, new trade structures are inherently accommodated without writing new code, delivering a future-proof solution.
F3 facilitates construction of both simple and complex products from a set of fundamental, modular, and generic building blocks. By describing all trades in terms of their fundamental obligations and rights, trades, hybrids, and multi-asset and multi-currency portfolios can be represented completely generically. New structures can be engineered quickly and effectively without writing new code, delivering a future-proof solution.
This modularity also plays a role in FINCAD’s stable and mature implementation of auto-differentiation, enabling analytic first order sensitivity for calculating Greeks and basis point sensitivities.
In F3, separating the concepts of a product, the market data model, and the numerical method of valuation produces a large degree of flexibility. This abstraction of concepts enables users to describe any structure and value it quickly and effectively.
Because there is a definitive line between a model (set of modeling assumptions and market data) and the product (payoff) being valued, the same model can be reused to value a variety of different products and a given product can be reused for a variety of different models, saving time and resources.
