Reval has released version 10.1 of its software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution. The new version arms users of derivatives with advanced risk management and graphical reporting tools for assessing and communicating the impact of market exposures on the business, according to the company.
Reval 10.1 enables companies to streamline the cyclical business process for financial risk management from pre-trade analysis to trade execution from within Reval, to hedge accounting and performance measurement, ensuring execution against hedge policies. New tools and modules provide users with the ability to visualise their risk positions across asset classes, net exposures across global entities to reduce trade volume and costs, and increase effectiveness by tracking trades over the lifecycle of the derivative.
