Palo Alto, CA - 26 July, 2004 - Application Networks announced today that SG Corporate & Investment Banking (SG CIB) has successfully gone into production with JRisk for its FX Options business. After a short implementation phase started in July 2003, the system, supporting the business globally, went live in February 2004.
JRisk is the leading trading and risk management technology for the world's major financial institutions and hedge funds.
The JRisk system has been implemented in Paris and rolled out globally. It is being used by traders, risk managers and middle office staff and provides official economic and accounting P&L, risk analysis and scenario simulations, real time risk and position management and VaR. The solution also delivers valuation reporting for customers of the bank. All vanilla and exotic forex options are supported.
