Implementing Derivative Valuation Models

The focus of the conference was on issues involved in the implementation of derivatives models in an institutional setting. Many banks and other organisations have large code libraries for valuating and hedging derivative securities under various modelling assumption. Computational efficiency, library management, and code maintenance become very significant but competing objectives.

The conference examined these issues and other, both at a general level, and in the context of specific valuation models.
