Caterpillar chooses SuperDerivatives for forex hedging

SuperDerivatives said it was the latest of several sales to buy-side institutions. Other users of the SuperDerivatives system include IBM, Ford, Xerox and Alcatel.

“I wanted a web-based pricing system that was easy to use and which provided accurate options pricing so that we could use it for developing our foreign exchange hedging strategies," said Caterpillar’s risk manager, Dan Kanyr. "SuperDerivatives meets those criteria fully."

David Gershon, chief executive of SuperDerivatives, said: “It has always been our belief that when corporations obtain greater price transparency, they will increase their use of foreign exchange options for hedging.”
