âGiven the customersâ needs, we evaluated several approaches and chose to develop a native ctypes Python interface, which allows developers to make use of an industry-standard portable foreign function interface library to call functions in either 32- or 64-bit versions of the shared ALib libraries. The ctypes approach was chosen over a SWIG or Python extension module implementation as we found in this case it offered more transparency, easier maintenance and less complexity for our customers to deal with.â states Julio Leonardo Jimenez, Suite Principal and Systems Architect.
The bankâs new rates-system combines data and analytics which are stored as objects and globally replicated for immediate and consistent use throughout the enterprise. This new paradigm exploits ALibâs object-oriented architecture and its high-performance design.
Alib is an analytic toolkit used by top-tier banks, hedge funds, money-managers, data-providers, online trading venues, fund administrators and retail brokers. It is relied upon for pricing, valuation and market-risk management of corporate and sovereign bonds, fixed income derivatives (listed and OTC), credit derivatives, FX and related financial products. Other new features released in 2011 include expanded support for emerging market debt instruments, additional curve-building refinements, and more powerful trade/portfolio risk introspection tools.
