SuperDerivatives: The Next Generation

It’s almost inevitable that a company that has so many rocket scientists on its staff – its founder has a doctorate in superstring theory no less – should seemingly name a product after a well-known sci-fi series.

SuperDerivatives has carved out a tremendous reputation since it launched its first option pricing platform back in 2001. In the interests of journalistic integrity, I have to disclose that I handled the company’s press and PR for five years. This week, SuperDerivatives announced the launch of its “next generation” SD-FX platform. This now includes fourth-generation exotics.

While no single platform can ever realistically produce the market price for such a wide array of complex products – after all, it’s opinions which make markets – SuperDerivatives is acknowledged as doing a pretty good job of it. If nothing else, its ease of use allows risk managers and financial controllers to get an independent check on something’s value. The market’s ongoing desire to march up the complexity curve seems undiminished, so products such as SD-FX have become almost as much of a necessity as access to spot prices.
