Toronto, April 25, 2022 — Riskfuel, a leading technology company specializing in the development of machine learning tools to enhance pricing and derivatives valuation, has been honored with the award for “Best Sell-Side Newcomer – Trading, Pricing & Analytics” at the 2022 Waters Technology Sell-Side Technology Awards.
The awards recognize innovative solutions that benefit firms in the securities industry, including investment banks. Riskfuel has transformed the calculation of complex derivative products, making the process of valuing and assessing risk a real-time affair, as opposed to the traditional overnight process. By partnering with Microsoft and Scotiabank, Riskfuel’s technology has been proven to increase production efficiency by over 20 million times, providing up-to-the-second risk assessments and portfolio values.
“For too long, the derivatives market has struggled with the lack of on-demand pricing and risk information,” commented Ryan Ferguson, CEO of Riskfuel. “This has not only hindered the ability to manage risks in real-time, but also stifled the necessary innovation for robust stress testing. With the innovative solutions offered by Riskfuel, the derivatives quant space is poised for a revolution of progress and growth.”
Riskfuel is transforming market risk management for banks and insurance companies. Risk calculations that normally take hours or days can now be completed in seconds, giving Riskfuel clients full insight into their risk at all times.
