Modelling the Product Hierarchy for Financial Services

Modelling the Product Hierarchy is critical as technology advances in response to evolving compliance requirements in Financial Services. Therefore I have updated if not reconstructed this page in response to the discussion it prompted. I intially developed this set of references 'to order' when working with IPL on 

An Information Framework for Financial Services Supervision

In my initial version of this blog / web-page; this is all I had to say;-

" Below a set of references, typically 'asymptotix-eclectic' which provide a roundup of captured and developed IP in this space to date. "make your Life easy"! There is no need to re-invent the wheel, IBM and SAP have been thinking about it for decades "

“you can't have a product without a customer”

Streambase NVIDIA

NEW YORK (USA) - June 23, 2010 StreamBase Systems, the leader in high-performance Complex Event Processing (CEP) technology, announced today at the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA) conference in New York, that it is collaborating with NVIDIA, inventor of the graphics processing unit (GPU), to offer the best-of-breed computing capability for capital markets.

asymptotix teslaINVIDIA have not said anything specific about this on their website.

However here is the chipset which StreamBase are leveraging.

Sybase - Risk Analysis on the Fly

Sybase asked TABB Group to make this interesting White Paper on Risk Analysis on the Fly. It carries plenty of interesting thoughts:

  • the future demands highly automated and high frequency trading, HA HFT actors (thinking of that 30 minute 1,000 point drop on Dow the other day).
  • it makes some links to the exchange traded everything arguments without making our concluding on ETE itself.
  • a conclusion is that the financial market actors should look more agile risk management tools such as the Siag products to fulfil their need to reach real time calculations of all dimensions including (Market) Risk. Day-1 data is not good at all for a trader, it shouldn’t be good enough for the CRO neither.
  • hints the need not only to Tier 1 banks but also for sophisticated Hedge Funds (the HA HFT actors) to make use of Siag’s products.

THE CHALLENGE FOR BANKING LINE MANAGEMENT

In a recent blog post, which has been very popular I must say, I went off on one of my "wax lyrical" rants about the sorry predicament of line management in banking today. If I refer my own twitter feed I must be one of the few people worldwide to offer a scrap of sympathy to that beleaguered community but fear not chaps I am on your side (if you want!?). My blog post on banking line management is here;-

Market Risk: Solving for Basel II and IFRS7 with SIAG

coins madridMarket (Price) Risk - Abstracting the Liquidity Component

Market Risk is different. Liquidity Risk is different even further. Conceptually they are in bed together, although Liquidity risk has risen up the food chain recently as the impregnability of the banking book has been seen to be a chimera as the tide of the crisis went out. One thing is for certain these are the two biggest headaches from Bishopsgate to the Barbican. The Liquidity risk story is well documented here so this blog has a focus on the Market Risk (Price) problem and how to solve it for its two currently key variables – Basel II and IFRS7.

Chief executive of SAP Leo Apotheker resigned

SAP offers glimmer of hope for IT

Germany’s SAP, the world’s largest maker of business software, offered a glimmer of hope that companies may again be investing in information technology when it said software sales last year were not as sluggish as expected.

The Walldorf-based group said sales of software and related services like subscriptions for web-based computer applications decreased only 5 per cent to €8.2bn in 2009, outperforming a drop of 6-8 per cent forecast in October.
