swissQuant new SSPA member
The Swiss Structured Products Association (SSPA) welcomes swissQuant to its ranks as new member and partner. This admission underscores the ambition of SSPA to represent the entire value chain – it also is another step towards a broad industry-wide representation. This chain includes issuers, markets, the buy side and partners in equal measure.
Zurich, 25 July 2016. The swissQuant Group, one of Switzerland’s leading Fintech enterprises, develops and implements Intelligent Technologies. More than 150 clients benefit on a daily basis from the use of their software systems, analysis tools and the translation of state-of-the-art quantitative methods and technologies into client benefits. The swissQuant group, founded in 2005 as a spin-off company of the ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology), is engaging over a dozen international teams of mathematicians, quant engineers and quant developers.
Nathaniel Zollinger, Head Derivatives Applications at swissQuant, about the SSPA membership: “Informed financial decision making requires reliable analyses, accurate forecasting and a continuously adjusted set of strategy options. We model dynamic systems for the simulation of a broad range of comprehensive scenarios – also in supporting the SSPA’s claim of further knowledge transfer. Our membership of the industry association underscores thus our commitment to structured products, and we are delighted to participate in the successful further development of the industry.”
Joint effort: tailor-made app demonstrating added value of structured products in portfolios
SSPA represents the interests of the most important market participants, which together cover more than 95 percent of the market volume for structured products in Switzerland. SSPA Vice-President Philipp Rickenbacher: “With the admission of swissQuant, the SSPA welcomes a highly appreciated working partner as new member. SSPA will soon launch a tailor-made app which will help understand how structured products work in customer portfolios and systematically explain the advantages of mixing in these products. This app is created in a joint effort of SSPA and swissQuant – thus, we can support the interests of the entire industry even more effectively. We are delighted by swissQuant’s commitment to the Swiss market for structured products and warmly welcome our new member.”Download PDF
