      The over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives market is a microcosm of what is and will be happening in financial services. It is a market that uniquely reflects the needs of clients, the concerns of regulators, the opportunity among banks, and the role of technology. The problems and solutions for OTC derivatives have broad applications to other parts of the financial services industry. One of the services with which a derivatives, or structured product, desk provides clients is the ability to quickly structure, price and execute an agreement that replicates the returns of an underlying index or basket of securities with customized terms and conditions. Besides highly standardized products like total-return swaps and barrier options, the spreadsheet is a key tool in creating, pricing and analyzing these products. In today’s risk-averse environment, however, the derivatives desk must balance the creativity and speed that clients demand with the pressure that banks are under to better manage their exposure to various forms of risk. These trends are driving a redesign of the way spreadsheets are deployed, run and managed across the financial-services industry, from global commercial banks to Greenwich-based hedge funds.
