SuperDerivatives, the benchmark for option pricing, trading, risk management and independent revaluations, has featured prominently in the customer-voted 2005 Euromoney Financial Technology Users Poll. The company was ranked first in the following categories:
PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT: Performance Measurement;
TRADING AND DEALING: Overall;
TRADING AND DEALING: Market Data, and
TRADING AND DEALING: Pricing Engine.
"We are a completely customer-focused company, so it is extremely satisfying that our clients have recognized what we are doing by responding so positively to Euromoneyâs Financial Technology Users Poll," says Dani Weigert, Global Head of Client Services at SuperDerivatives.
"Euromoneyâs awards are highly regarded by participants in the financial markets. Because they are based on client feedback, rather than based on some arbitrary decision by a faceless panel, they are seen as independent and credible," he adds.
Commenting on SuperDerivativesâ success in the poll, Euromoney wrote: "SuperDerivativesâ ability to stay on top of the game is exemplified in its new product line. Three new products will launch in late summer: pricing systems for equities, interest rates and commodities. The company has also recently announced the launch of SD-MMâ¢ Reval, which will help derivatives traders comply with new accounting standards, and which aims to make the revaluation process for exotic option portfolios simpler and more reliable."
Euromoney is one of the most prominent financial magazines in the world.
