The Scenario Team

We are a group of 12 quants within Ortec finance that is responsible for the innovation and maintenance of our quantitative financial models. The models are a cornerstone in the advisory services Ortec Finance provides to its clients and the serve as a crucial input in the financial decision making for applications such as ALM and risk management for pension funds, insurance companies, and asset managers all over the world.

 

Our main responsibilities include:

  • Innovating (extending or improving) and maintaining the financial and economic modelling, within the frameworks of our products;

The OFS forms the basis for all of Ortec Finance’s forward-looking applications, such as ALM, asset allocation optimization, and risk management. The OFS combines a number of models and expert judgement interventions in a delicate way to achieve a forecast that is top of its class. Next to the OFS, we offer a risk-neutral model used for valuation purposes, as well as house price models. The quality and scope of our models are reflected by our global client base.
