A High Performance Computer HPC system is an ideal platform for running financial related applications. Financial applications require the processing of huge volumes of data. Financial simulations are necessary tools in determining estimated risk and formulating the company’s best course of action. An HPC system provides valuable assistance in risk analysis, market analysis, tranche, securities trading, securities valuation and other related areas of finance.

Increased regulations are placing more pressure on companies to build management and financial accountability into their workflow. Regulatory acts and standards such as Sarbanes-Oxley, the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) and the COSO Integrated Framework have helped define the industry. A number of HPC applications assist companies in meeting the requirements of these acts and standards.

Financial companies that utilize high performance computing find themselves a step ahead of the competition. For a modest investment, even the smallest finance related companies can now put the power of high performance computing to work to increase their ability to compete in the market.
