An important aspect of most companies marketing strategy these days is via their website. At Hedgebook we spend lots of time developing our derivative hedging software and have to date been somewhat remiss in the development of our web presence. We have taken some initial steps to address this by adding some extra information about the company and the individuals behind the company. We have also included some more technical aspects regarding the operations of the company, hosting of the application and disaster recovery. Additionally, we now display a selection of fx rates, interest rate swap rates and metals prices on our home page. The rates are live and update every five seconds. The aim is to provide a quick view of the key rates Hedgebook users care about.
We have also released an update to the Hedgebook application. We are constantly working on changes and improvements to the valuation and reporting software to give users either access to new instruments and features, or making existing ones more intuitive and easier to use. The most material changes from this software update include exposing the cashflow map for amortising interest rate swaps and we have also streamlined the reporting functionality.
Feedback always welcome.
