Our annual awards recognise the leading developments in technology and service offerings for the global credit markets during the past year, particularly in response to the challenges in analytics, risk management, pricing and valuation.
Regulators across the globe are demanding drastic improvements to the infrastructure of the financial sector; improvements that will stretch the capabilities of banks, asset managers and, of course, technology vendors.
But as far as innovation is concerned, perhaps even more pressure to improve is being applied from within the industry itself. Vendors have made great strides to meet the demands of their clients over the past year.
Whether they have focused on helping users better manage counterparty risk; analyse the underlying assets of structured finance deals; or offer them a brand new methodology to assess default probabilities; there has been no lack of innovation.
Credit market participants, dealers and investors alike depend on technological products to give them a competitive advantage. The products that have best met those needs are detailed in the following pages.
