Savvysoft Releases New Model To Price TARNS

New York -- September 5, 2006 -- Savvysoft, the award-winning derivatives analytics provider, today released a new model to price Target Accrual Redemption Notes and Swaps. These instruments pay a floating rate of interest, up until the time that a pre-determined maximum amount of interest has been paid, at which point they mature. Thus, the amount of interest to be earned is known, but the timing of the interest, and the maturity of the instrument, is not. The model has the ability to price a TARN, as well as calculate its expected life.

“TARN products are very popular,” said Rich Tanenbaum, Savvysoft founder, and developer of the new model. “They represent a new type of payoff. And as we have done with other new traded products, we’ve quickly added them to our TOPS line of models, which continues to cover every instrument in every asset class.”

Savvysoft’s TARN model is extremely flexible, to handle many types of variations, such as straight floaters, inverse floaters, and notes with a known fixed coupon during an initial lockout period.

The TARN model is available immediately..
