Register now for the PRMIA webinar on Data Management for Market Risk, presented by Brian Sentance, CEO, Xenomorph

Wednesday 23rd April 2014 at 12pm EST

Data used in risk management is a little bit like the water we drink every day: none of us can function without it, we are not always sure where it comes from, some of us have no idea how much it really costs, we don't mind if we waste it, we don't like sharing it, and usually, we only find if it was bad for us after we have drunk it.

In this webinar, Brian will outline the issues and approaches in data management for risk, focusing on his experience with clients in market-risk related projects.

The webinar is free to PRMIA sustaining members and costs $35 USD to PRMIA contributing members.

EVENT: OIS Discounting and Curve Management

Wilmott Forum Event Hosted by Xenomorph and Numerix
New York, 31 May 2012


The credit crisis of 2007 brought the usage of LIBOR and LIBOR swap rates for discounting purposes into acute focus, as LIBOR spreads to US Treasury rates dramatically increased from the then typical levels of around 50bp to a peak of 450bp in October 2007. This has led to many practitioners to now use Overnight Indexed Swap (OIS) rates as a proxy for risk-free rates in derivatives valuation.

This event discussed the use of OIS discounting and curve management in general, from the point of view of the practitioner, the financial engineer and the systems implementer.
