Analytic Space, a customizable portfolio pricing and risk analysis framework, provides a robust set of algorithms for the construction and effective application of yield curves, volatility surfaces and other market data. Yield curves may be constructed for any trading currency around the globe. Yield curves can easily be shared by end users and the curves can be archived along with the raw market data used in curve construction. In addition, end users may import externally generated yield curves for use within Analytic Space.
