Quantifi Announces Agreement with Jefferies to Support their Structured Credit Business
New York and London, 10th September, 2019 — Quantifi, a provider of risk, analytics and trading solutions today announced that it has been selected by Jefferies Group LLC to support its growing structured credit business. Jefferies Group LLC (Jefferies), the largest independent full-service global investment banking firm headquartered in the U.S, is a leader in providing insight, expertise and execution to investors, companies and governments.
To meet investor demand for more innovative and tailored investments, Jefferies has grown its structured credit capabilities to include synthetic collateralized debt obligations (CDO) based on diverse portfolios of corporate credit default swaps. To support this synthetic CDO business, Jefferies sought to acquire a state-of-the-art pricing and analytics solution with enhanced capabilities for synthetic structured products, instead of developing its own in-house system. Quantifi was selected for its market leading analytics, including the ability to calculate VaR for complex credit products, strong integration with existing in-house systems, technical flexibility, and high performance computing.
Quantifi is the market leader for credit analytics and risk management and its solutions are trusted by leading sell-side firms that trade diversified credit. It offers the most comprehensive product coverage and advanced functionality available in the market, with tools that measure sensitivities under several scenarios, conduct what-if analysis and run stress tests in a consistent manner. Quantifi delivers the tools that firms need to succeed in the valuation, pricing and risk management of structured products.
“We are delighted that Jefferies Group LLC, a well-respected leader in its field, has selected Quantifi to support its structured credit business,” comments Rohan Douglas, CEO, Quantifi. “What we are seeing lately is a move towards more complex instruments including single-name CDS, synthetic CDO, CLOs and other hybrid products. Firms investing in structured credit products require comprehensive analytics that can accurately model complex deals. Quantifi has a long track record of delivering the most advanced pricing and structuring solution for the global credit markets,” continues Rohan.
