Mathematical Models for the Finance Industry

simply closer to the market

Pricing and Risk Model Consulting

We implement and validate valuation and risk models, review and document models, independently value structured products. With our in-house software MFVal and MICRL we model the FX Volatility Surface or Yield Curve based on standard market quotes. Our clients use our library for both model validation and in a live trading environment.

Our clients are banks, asset managers and software companies.
