Achieve Transparency and Accuracy with OTC Val’s Derivative Valuation Service


OTC Valuations Limited, a provider of transparent and auditable valuation and risk reports for over-the-counter independent derivatives, has introduced a service aimed at providing primary, secondary, and tertiary valuations of both vanilla and exotic derivative instruments..

With increased regulatory and institutional investor focus on the transparency and accuracy of derivative valuations, independent derivative valuations are fast becoming essential for organizations. To aid organizations with fair value measures, the financial accounting requirement changes introduced by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (’FASB’) with FAS 157 have provided clarification and direction on how companies should measure fair value of financial instruments such as derivatives.

With evaluated pricing data vendors, such as Standard & Poors, FT Interactive, and Markit Group establishing the infrastructure required to expand their evaluated pricing data capabilities, the availability of level 1 inputs for liquidly traded instruments is growing. However, the same cannot be said for thinly traded derivative securities.

Bob Sangha, one of the founders of OTC Val, elaborates, "We still see a significant gap in the area of illiquid and structured products. So our aim is to tap into that requirement and provide services either directly to clients or to partner with the data vendors to feed them our model-driven prices.”

Sangha adds, "By using mark-to-market and mark-to-model valuation techniques, we provide our clients fair value insight through unbiased and independent valuations based on quoted market data, carefully calibrated models, and proven valuation methodologies. Our services help firms reduce their operational risk and achieve valuation transparency for their derivative portfolios. Standing behind what we deliver, we truly focus on customer service, and strive to build relationships where we are your trusted partner.”

OTC Val is committed to working with organizations that need to address their independent derivative valuations needs, particularly in achieving greater accuracy and transparency for OTC derivatives. OTC Val offers services for:
•Scheduled Valuation and Risk Reports as your primary pricing source.
•Pre-Deal Pricing as a sanity check for an instrument you are buying or selling.
•Benchmark Pricing as a complimentary pricing source to your dealer marks or existing solution.
•Interim Solutions until you are able to fill the analytical or market data gaps.
•White-Labeled Services for your clients.
