Fund administrator HedgeServ has expanded its ability to offer real-time valuation of illiquid and complex over-the-counter derivatives using market data from SuperDerivatives, the derivatives benchmark in FX, interest rates, commodities, energy, equity and credit.
"By incorporating SD into our core technology platform, we have enhanced our ability to provide on-demand valuation directly to clients' desktops," says Jim Kelly, chairman of HedgeServ. "Our administrative solutions provide intra-day trade processing, valuation and risk for complex transactions. With SD's volatility surfaces, we have increased our capacity to price and value our clients' diverse portfolios in a transparent T+0 environment."
The joint HedgeServ-SuperDerivatives solution enables on-demand portfolio pricing and expands the coverage and quality of HedgeServ's portfolio valuation capabilities.
SuperDerivatives's infrastructure combines the required elements of data sourcing, data cleansing, quantitative modelling and market calibration to facilitate the automation and controls required to deliver consistent net asset value verifications.
Chris Zingo, senior vice president of the Americas at SuperDerivatives, says: "As a company, we focus on providing extremely wide asset coverage, underpinned by an unparalleled level of accuracy in our derivatives market data. This definitely sets us apart from other data providers in the industry. Due to the current market conditions and investment climate, we see a high demand for our data within the hedge fund community. Clearly HedgeServ is very favourably positioned to respond to those demands."
