CurveDeveloperTM Analytic Features

CurveDeveloperTM addresses the core market data infrastructure needs of companies generating/managing multiple curves by consolidating data into a single database.


CurveDeveloper's analytic process allows users to fill and extend forward curves while continuing to account for seasonal changes.  Incomplete portions of the forward curves will be filled by a seasonally-adjusted interpolation/extrapolation processes.


Ascend's advanced models are targeted to client-specific instruments, including structured-product pricing.  The end result will reduce each quote into single-month, while applying a client-specific seasonal shape.

Filter and chart forward curve data for interactive display within the CurveDeveloperTM user interface.  Visualize market movements across transaction dates and identify differences in data by source.

Better models. Better decisions.
