Derivix, a financial services software company, has secured investment from J.P. Morgan and S.A.C. Venture Investments, an affiliate of S.A.C. Capital Advisors.
Derivix’s analytics functionality, broker-neutral execution and portfolio risk platform provides clients with solutions to meet the increasingly competitive challenges of derivatives trading.
The investments follow a year of continued growth by Derivix. In 2009, the company increased its client base, continued its product development and further expanded its partner programme.
The new investments will enable Derivix to enhance its product by powering continued product innovation, expanding its sales and customer support infrastructure, and fuelling its entry into new marketplaces.
"We have been impressed with the speed, accuracy, and simulation functionalities of the Derivix Risk Management Platform. We are looking forward to offering the Derivix platform as part of our integrated client trading solution, ultimately enhancing the clients’ trading decision making process," says Neil McDonald of J.P. Morgan.
Jonathan Weedon (pictured), chief executive and co-founder of Derivix, adds: “These investments are further proof of the strength of our products, people and vision. Derivix is committed to empowering our customers with the most advanced solutions available as we continue to set the bar for innovative software solutions in the derivatives marketplace.”
