BIG DATA ANALYTICS AND VISUALIZATION

SERVICES

Fuelled by new regulations, the complexity and number of pricing and risk calculations in investment banks are growing exponentially. Traditional systems in pricing and risk management are outdated. Leveraging on big data, cloud technologies and AI, ICA has built a highly efficient solutions for derivatives faster to run, cheaper and lighter to implement and operate, that is deliverable through a SaaS solution or implemented on premises.



ICA is Capital Market Fintech who works with banks to leverage new technologies to address their risk and regulatory calculations challenges through:


  • an all-in derivatives pricing tool, XVA and FRTB SaaS which has the sophistication of the largest bank but the simplicity of a plug and play solution; 
  • a “big compute” solution, to deploy efficiently and securely banks’ analytics on any cloud (with built-in anonymization process).
  • a “big data” result management tool to easily visualize, manipulate, aggregate on the fly on any axe and apply statistics on trillions of data points, with the scalability of disk clusters (making any in-memory cubes obsolete). We also give users access to “calculators” and ”aggregators” (predefined in the tool and/or connected to the bank’s calculation library). Used in many different use cases that are coming up on the agenda of all banks: FRTB market risks, SA-CVA, Credit Exposures (PFE, EPE, CVA…), what-if simulations for instance on the “end of –IBORs” ; all of those not easily solved with current tools.

Developers and Quants

ICA team is mostly comprised of PhD and Masters in IT, specialists in digital technologies, as well as PhD and masters in Quantitative Finance.

Cloud Computing

Our solution includes components for large scale distributed computation tailored to pricing and risk management on any Cloud: private, public or hybrid without the need for any commercial orchestrator software

Optimized Distribution

With our dual experiences in finance and modern technologies, we have proven a unique know-how in the field of optimized distributed calculations


Big Data Analytical Database


We have been heavily involved in the big data fields, for our own platform, or for our clients’ solutions. Typical risk calculation includes hundreds of billions of structured data and requires optimised data compression, fast read/write and slice and dice in any direction 


Data Anonymisation

The usage of hybrid cloud (public/private) implies in-depth anonymization algorithms: no confidential information is transmitted to the public cloud, aggregations are made locally…


TECHNOLOGIES

Real-Time What-ifs

Beyond the batch computation, pricing/risk solutions and architecture must factor in various aspects of real-time calculations: new trades, parameters simulations, market updates…

Artificial Intelligence


Our different solutions have lead us to explore techniques of AI in various applications such as auto-calibration of distribution schema, or fitting of MTM functions 

PARTNERS AND AWARDS
