Reval, a provider of derivatives risk management and hedge accounting software, says the latest release of its software-as-a-service solution, Reval 10.1, provides customers with new tools and modules that let them streamline the financial risk management process. The Cash Flow at Risk module helps companies decide what, how and when to hedge by looking at future cash flow scenarios for various asset classes, including interest rates, FX and commodities, Reval says, while the new Exposure Management module helps companies use fewer external trades to manage a large portfolio. Reval also says that with Reval 10.1, it has completed the integration of its platform with that of FXall, an electronic foreign exchange portal, so that FX trades executed on FXall will automatically flow into Reval's valuation and hedge accounting engines.
