FINCAD Announces Global Partnership with FRM® Study Course

Vancouver and Dublin - 15 December 2011

FINCAD, the leading provider of financial analytics, has partnered with the FRM Study Course to provide candidates from around the world with access to its award-winning enterprise analytics platform, F3. The FRM Study Course is authored by Christian Cooper, a senior derivatives trader who launched the program three years ago.

The intent of this partnership is to combine the real world trading and risk management experience with the strength of FINCAD’s analytics platform into one comprehensive learning tool. This partnership will enable FRM candidates to see the practical application of the exam curriculum.

“I have used FINCAD products over the course of my career and I am particularly impressed with the flexibility and power of F3. Giving my students access to F3 is an extraordinary opportunity for them to use real tools and develop an intuition about risk as opposed to just memorizing formulas,” commented Mr. Cooper. “There will be focused instructional modules for all of the relevant exam topics such as derivatives pricing, risk management, enterprise risk management tools, and credit risk management. These modules will be delivered in a combination of excel spreadsheets as well as a web interface.”

“We’re very excited that F3 will be offered globally to students enrolled in the FRM Study Course while they are preparing for the exam,” said Bob Park, President & CEO, FINCAD. “Our enterprise analytics platform is highly flexible and powerful through our patent pending risk technology, allowing professionals to create complex financial products easily and obtain the comprehensive risk analysis. This is a great opportunity for students to get hands-on experience with a technology that’s being used by finance professionals in today’s market.”
