“Every year the bar gets raised in the derivatives analytics field. As one of the few independent derivatives vendors around, we have a unique responsibility to not just stay current with market developments. but to excel. We seem to be thriving on the competition, which helps our clients succeed,” said Rich Tanenbaum, Savvysoft founder & CEO. “Ultimately, helping our clients is what it’s all about.”

Continued Tanenbaum, “Our results are even more impressive when you consider that we finished in a virtual tie for #1 in Interest Rates, as well, based on the margin of error of the survey. Had Risk rounded the numerical results, we would have actually come in #5 overall across all vendors in all categories.”
