AAD can give a massive boost to computation speeds

Dealers in the structured products market are used to facing down complex risk management challenges. But the continued need to do so quickly and accurately across a large, diverse book of products is throwing up a more mundane issue: a lack of processing capacity. Calculating a product's sensitivity to a huge variety of risk factors, commonly known as Greeks, is placing an ever-increasing strain on the modelling and computational demands of issuers' pricing and risk models.
