Algorithmica picked as swap valuation specialist

Together with a leading financial consulting firm, Algorithmica partnered to deliver an independent buy-out valuation for a portfolio of currency interest rate swaps held by a Nordic mid-sized mortgage bank. In the current market there are many choices of both market data as well as modeling to make. In this case a complete setup of tenor spreads, fx-swaps, and currency basis spreads were used to create relevant forward and discounting curves for the swaps.

Valuation differences arising from different discount options were highlighted as well as a complete breakdown of the other sources of PnL. Quantlab’s new fixed income libraries for curve creation and swap valuations were used to perform the joint work.
