Derivative Genius | Software Solutions for Derivative Accounting
Derivative Genius provides derivative accounting solutions as well as pricing and risk management of derivatives.
Derivative Genius provides matchless back office processing and support for a variety of products, including interest rate swaps, caps, floors, collars, options, futures, and more. Its flexible scheduling capabilities enable it to support a wide variety of swap structures—including swaps amortizing and accreting by an index, and having any number of legs. Derivative Genius produces daily accounting and sub ledger accounting entries and counterparty payments. It comes with an optional pricing module allowing you to price your derivatives as required.
Derivative Genius complies with the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), and all formulas used in system calculations follow guidelines established by:
- The Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (FASB) published requirements, including FAS 91, FAS 115 and FAS 133;
- The International Swap and Derivatives Association (ISDA); and
- The Public Securities Association (PSA), published in the Uniform Practices by PSA, when appropriate.
The system allows you to process on a daily basis or multiple days at once with positing aggregated. And if you mistakenly enter a transaction, removal is safe and easy. History and balance information is stored daily and is accessible at any time. Additionally, because all TPG products share a common database, you can effortlessly link the transactions entered into Derivative Genius with your asset and liability portfolio in Portfolio Genius, providing useful information for the related assets and their FAS 115 designations.
As mentioned earlier, Derivative Genius provides sub ledger accounting for all derivative instruments and counterparty payment processing. Transactions post separately for par values, accrual values, and associated premiums, discounts and fees. The summary general ledger postings automatically flow to the general ledger.
