Valuation Service

The valuation of non-structured financial instruments - e.g. interest rate swaps, cross currency swaps, loans, bonds, FX forwards, FX swaps - is based on the discounting of cashflows, estimating floating cash flows using tenor-specific forward curves. Plus a number of other techniques including: 

  • yield curves calibrated from various benchmarking instruments, including basis spreads
  • bootstrapping algorithm includes a multi-curve bootstrapping procedure to allow a consistent yield curve setup for the discount curves, the tenor specific forward curves and cross-currency discount curves. Scenarios can be specified for all market parameters to simulate their impact on portfolio- or deal-level.

Additional modules for more complex structured financial products or other asset classes (e.g. Inflation, credit risk, equity risk, oil, gas, power, and other commodities) are available on demand.

Value at Risk (VaR) for interest rate risk and FX rate risk can be calculated using the variancecovariance approach or historical simulations. For accounting purposes, the measures CVA, DVA, FVA and ColVA can be computed on portfolio level, taking into account netting and collateralisation.

CTMfile take: Trinity is a mature TMS solution which continues to add depth to their functionality, e.g. the recent improvements to IFRS hedge accounting and in VAR management. The emphasis on the use of partners is unusual and is a vital part of their offering. Is this the modern way of putting solutions together?
