SUPER DERIVATIVES PACKAGES;
The company was founded by Dr. David Gershon and Dr. Menashe Banit in 2000 who developed their own model for options pricing. In 2001 SuperDerivatives launched the first real time option pricing tool delivered over the internet. Within 2 years most of the banks that traded options around the world used the SuperDerivatives pricing system and the option pricing model was referred to by many as the “benchmark for options”.
The availability of the system over the internet opened many new option markets such as in China, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Turkey, Morocco, Dubai, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Colombia, Poland, Russia, Slovenia, Slovakia. The users of the system included banks, hedge funds, corporations, brokers, central banks and auditors.
The biggest contribution of SuperDerivatives was the fact that the transparency it created enabled many new market makers and takers to participate actively in the Vanilla and Exotic options market and as a result the bid-ask spreads shrunk and the liquidity and volume rose dramatically. Within less than 5 years SuperDerivative transformed the option market. In 2004,
SuperDerivatives established a market data division publishing implied data from the OTC markets. This was followed by the launch of an independent valuation service. In 2010, they created a cross-asset derivatives pricing, structuring and pre-trade analysis system, called SDX. In 2011, they created a multi-bank trading system for FX options in partnership with FXCM Pro, called DCX. In late 2012, they established a market data platform called DGX. DGX is a free text data system with self configuration, viewed by many as the most technologically advanced data system in the market.
