Groups managing credit derivative product companies require the same level of operations as large banks (systems for analysis, deal capture, accounting, risk management, etc.), but typically have much leaner staffs, correspondingly smaller budgets, and shorter implementation timeframes. The need for a single system that can handle all the elements involved in running these operations is critical, and Principia SFP meets this need.
