We perform an independent valuation of all financial products - including OTCs and illiquid instruments - within the context of the statutory requirements. You benefit from the greatest possible transparency: all the parameters that form the basis of the calculation are known and it is clear at all times how the value was determined.
The basic rule set can be individualized according to your internal guidelines for the determination of the valuated price. The daily reporting contains all available price sources thus ensuring compliance – as well as through the intuitive processing of daily outliers in accordance with the dual control principle.
We work together with you to create a customer-specific set of rules based on the existing best-practice standard set of rules and implement it as a standardized process. This significantly reduces the manual processing effort. Intervention is only required in exceptional cases and can be easily implemented via the user-friendly interface.
The verification of executed sell and buy orders takes place according to regulatory standards and best practice, based on current market prices, (calculated) benchmarks, and fully revalued prices for all liquid and illiquid (OTC) product types.
We guarantee best execution in line with market standards and internal compliance requirements. In doing so, different levels of complexity are combined in one service:
