Beetsterzwaag, Netherlands, April 14, 2003 - Asset Control, a leading provider of investment data integration solutions to the financial industry, today announced the release of AC Contour. The newest application in the AC Business Suite of tools and applications, AC Contour is a comprehensive and flexible tool for creating and visualizing curves and surfaces used in the financial markets. These include volatilities, correlation and variance covariance matrices, zero curves and bond curves. AC Contour was designed in close
cooperation with risk and trading experts in six Asset Control customer institutions.
"Why should financial institutions go through major software integration to view and analyze the pricing data they already have? With AC Contour, our customers can immediately transform their raw data into the derived curves and volatilities they need for risk management and trading analytics. Or they can build proprietary models on the fly," said Ger Rosenkamp, CEO of Asset Control. "AC Contour is designed to work with either AC Plus in-house data
management or our ACDEX outsourced service. Itâs the newest example of Asset Controlâs commitment to helping our customers gain maximum value from the data they already have."
