Imagine Software Expands Asset-Class Coverage and Delivers Cloud-Based Solution for Structured Products
Hong Kong, London, New York: Imagine Software, a leader in cloud-based portfolio, risk and margin solutions for capital markets, today announces its native asset-class coverage has been expanded to meet the needs of firms issuing and trading structured products. In addition, Imagine offers the ability to build over-the-counter (OTC) packaged products and provides a user-friendly development platform for firms to plug in their own models using Imagine’s APIs.
Imagine’s solution covers the full front-to-back trade lifecycle and process flow for structured products (P&L, cash management, value-at-risk, stress testing, operational reporting), as well as data support for end-of-day and start-of-day processes. Delivering all the benefits of a cloud-based platform, Imagine combines native support for firms to issue and manage structured products with fast implementation, reduced maintenance costs, operational efficiencies and a drastically lower total cost of ownership when compared with other solutions on the market.
This launch follows the deployment of an enhanced local volatility Monte Carlo model, combined with increasing demand for cloud-based solutions and continued growth in structured products, particularly across Asia.
Scott Sherman, co-founder of Imagine Software, said “Imagine was created to bring institutional-grade capabilities within reach of all financial firms, and with the addition of structured products to the platform we continue in our core mission. We have already signed several new clients using this solution because it appeals to firms looking to issue structured products as well as large investment banks looking to take advantage of the cost benefits and operational efficiencies of our cloud-based solutions.”

If you have ever thought, “maybe we should collect and store our own data, so that we can have control over it,” or you think that all risk platforms are basically the same when it comes to data, we offer a look behind the scenes at what is involved in building and maintaining comprehensive datasets.
