OIS Discounting

OIS Discounting methodology in Summit proposed by GMS

Since the 2008 global financial crisis, the way the Market values derivatives’ future cash-flows has changed. This has lead to financial institutions adapting their discounting process and thus the valuation functions, the interest rate curves bootstrapping, the collateral management as well as their risk analysis.

GMS has extensive experience with implementation projects of the “OIS Discounting” methodology in Summit Front-to-Back workflow.
