Global treasury technology leader BELLIN, a Coupa company, today announced that it has acquired Much-Net GmbH, a leading financial instrument software and service provider. This move will further strengthen and extend BELLIN’s valuation and risk management offering.
Much-Net has made a name for itself as a highly specialized niche player and can look back on 40 years’ experience. Its risk management engine goes far beyond the standard capabilities of a treasury management system and is aimed at the entire financial industry, including corporates, banks, investment funds, finance ministries, or insurances. In addition, Much-Net offers process consulting to optimize risk management, limit management, performance measurement, and refinancing.
“Risk management is a fundamental but also multi-faceted and often highly complex part of every treasury function”, said Martin Bellin, CEO, and Founder of BELLIN. “With the acquisition of Much-Net, we want to enable customers to benefit from the full suite of valuation and risk management options integrated in their treasury management system – from risk management staples to highly specialized solutions.”
Much-Net’s risk engine will be embedded into the existing treasury offering. Instruments analyzed and valued cover all types of financial plain vanilla, structured bonds, commodity derivatives, collateral management or structured derivatives, hedge accounting (IAS39 and IFRS9), and much more. With this extended treasury and risk management offering, customers gain visibility into, fully manage, and reduce risk across a unified set of liquidity and financial instrument information.
