Making Better Investment and Risk Decisions
By Bob Park | February 13, 2018

Last week we announced key advances to our enterprise portfolio and risk analytics solution, FINCAD F3, which helps buy side firms make superior investment and risk decisions, improve operational efficiency and reduce operational risk. 

F3 enables firms to meet the key challenges of improving returns and reducing costs by helping them to:

  • Expand into more instruments and asset classes with a comprehensive library of industry standard tools and models
  • Make better portfolio and hedging decisions with accurate valuation and comprehensive risk reports
  • Improve risk management with a complete view of performance and risk across the firm
  • Achieve rapid ROI with fast implementations, scalable technology and integration to existing data sources and systems

Some of the additions to F3 include the ability to create custom tailored analytics with the new Python MicroServices, powerful workflow management capabilities and increased coverage for futures, bond, equity, and commodity securities.

With F3, firms no longer need to choose between an off-the-shelf system with black box analytics or a customized solution that takes forever to implement. With F3, you don’t need to compromise. You get powerful out-of-the-box functionality, the flexibility for unlimited customization and are able to satisfy the competing demands of quants, portfolio managers, traders, risk managers and developers.

Here is what one of our clients, a senior portfolio manager at a leading UK pension scheme, had to say: “F3 is the most flexible valuation and risk analytics solution on the market. The ability to develop and implement highly tailored hedging strategies and produce intra-day risk has been extremely valuable.”
