Decameron Technologies, a provider of best-in-class solutions for fixed income portfolios, announced today that it has partnered with Beacon Platform, a cloud-native technology platform designed for the financial services industry.

“Beacon has become the go-to Platform for innovators in quantitative finance that are looking to develop high-performance, cloud-native workflow solutions. Decameron’s advanced pricing and risk management analytics will introduce a specialized solution for our mutual client base” says Ryo Shimizu, Head of Apps and Partnerships at Beacon Platform Inc. 

Decameron’s proprietary fixed income pricing and risk management engine is derived from the system originally developed by pioneering quantitative hedge funds. It has been continually updated and improved by a team of researchers who possess a combination of quantitative skills and real-world experience managing substantial portfolios. 

All of Decameron’s applications are designed by practitioners, for practitioners, and the team’s real-world expertise and resulting intuition deeply informs framework design.  For Beacon’s clients, Decameron apps will be available for purchase in the soon-to-be-launched Beacon App Store.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be partnering with Beacon Platform,” said Ksusha McCormick, CEO of Decameron Technologies. “Advanced analytics such as ours need to be domiciled in an advanced development environment, and Beacon’s state-of-the-art core infrastructure allows us to quickly and reliably adapt our capabilities to a broad range of applications and evolving client needs.”

Decameron’s pricing and risk management tools seamlessly plug into Beacon infrastructure to create applications that address a wide range of client needs for trading, analysis, and risk management of fixed income portfolios. Piggybacking on Beacon’s extensive native resources allows Decameron to be nimble and targeted in creating customized solutions for highly sophisticated buy-side and sell-side firms. For example, an early Decameron solution helps firms identify and manage a variety of market-related risks facing legacy contracts through the LIBOR-SOFR transition.
