Deloitte Guide for Structured Products


Deloitte Guide for Structured Products

Navigate easily through derivatives and structured products

Deloitte Guide for Structured Products (DGSP) is an integrated solution to accompany you in facing all challenges met in the management of complex Over-The-Counter (OTC) derivatives and structured products, throughout the lifetime of these instruments.

Guide for Structured Products

Following the 2008 crisis, regulating bodies have strongly emphasized their scrutiny over complex OTC derivatives and structured products. Simultaneously, the complexity of these products and especially, the models used for their valuation has dramatically increased.

In this context, professionals managing those financial instruments (private bankers, risk managers, asset servicers) require a much deeper technical expertise to deal with these challenges.

DGSP is specifically designed to help you face this new environment, and in particular, manage the complete lifecycle of derivative products. DGSP is powered by DLIB (Deloitte Library), a proprietary Straight-Through Processing (STP) solution covering market data collection, pricing of derivatives and structured products, and various reporting capabilities.

DLIB is the result of the expertise of Deloitte financial engineers. It benefits from the latest developments in quantitative finance thanks to a state-of-the-art IT architecture.
