Validus Uses Quantrix for Financial Planning
Dan Kirkpatrick of Validus Holdings Group attended the 2015 Seminar by the Sea in Portland this fall, and shared his thoughts about Quantrix Modeler. In this video, he discusses how the company uses Quantrix for financial planning, including developing P&Ls and balance sheets by company and division.
He also uses Quantrix for scenario testing and for building capital models. Validus is a holding company for reinsurance and insurance operating companies and investment advisors, and it has a high volume of historical data – its models are large, with some at 1.2+ billion cells. Kirkpatrick says that Quantrix is “leaps and bounds ahead of Excel” in its ability to create models that deliver insight to senior management.
