About MBRM - MB Risk Management
MBRM are developers of the world-famous UNIVERSAL Add-ins®. With 30,000+ users world-wide, the UNIVERSAL Add-ins are the most widely-used derivative software for the pricing, risk management, trading, arbitrage, fund management and auditing of securities, options, futures and swaps in the convertible, fixed income, commodities, energy, equities, foreign exchange and money markets. Links with most real-time feeds create a powerful and dynamic analytical environment. MBRM's software is used world-wide in mission critical applications by most major Investment Houses, Money Managers and Corporate Treasuries.
The UNIVERSAL Add-ins are all implemented as function calls in a Dynamic Link Library (DLL), thus assisting in the ease of use and integration into the user's analytical environment. They can therefore be called from Excel, Access, Visual Basic, C, C++, Fortran etc. This object-orientated building-block approach provides unequalled speed, cost-effectiveness and flexibility. MBRM's technical support is excellent since the software has been designed and implemented in-house. A free fully functional 30 day trial can be downloaded here or any of our other mirrored sites. You can also click on the CD picture in the top left corner to go to our download section at any time.
MBRM also provides source code and analytical consultancy to integrate its technology into existing in-house systems. This provides an alternative to either developing the software in-house, or buying in a potentially inflexible third party system. By sharing its analytical techniques with many clients, MBRM can assist you in building a low cost in-house solution with world-beating analytical tools. Additionally, MBRM provides customised risk management training which uniquely combines analytical excellence with technology solutions, at either their or the client’s premises. This would be tailored to the participants’ backgrounds, whether they are traders, technology or internal audit professionals. This could include solving real life problems with which the participants are struggling.
MBRM are pioneers of the financial add-in and toolkit market segments and have been continuously providing leading edge analytical solutions since 1988 and have one of the longest successful track records in the industry. MBRM regard this as essential since every sale is the start of a long term partnership.
