Lacima announces strategic alliance with CubeLogic


5 December 2016.   Lacima, the industry acknowledged and award winning leading provider of energy commodities analytics with capabilities to meet the risk management, valuation, and optimization needs of global multi-commodity and energy players, today announces its strategic alliance with CubeLogic.  CubeLogic is a leader in risk management and business intelligence solutions for the energy, commodities and financial markets. 

CubeLogic will embed a subset of Lacima’s risk analytics functionality within its platform to provide clients with a ‘one-stop shop’ for market, credit, and liquidity risk management and reporting.  Lacima’s numerical engines will provide advanced analytics to simulate spot & forward prices, calculate Mark to Market values for a wide range of contract types, as well as calculate VaR, PFE, and other risk metrics.   Lacima’s valuation and risk results will be fully integrated and will be able to be seamlessly queries, manipulated and reported from within CubeLogic’s Market, Credit and Liquidity Risk Cubes.

Chris Strickland, CEO at Lacima commented, ‘This is another major win for customers to move away from the need to “bolt on” risk engines as they currently do with most other ETRM vendors to get sophisticated risk analytics.  Lacima’s risk technology will be embedded into CubeLogic’s platform to produce a seamless integration between business intelligence reporting and the calculation of risk metrics.’

Lee Campbell, CEO at CubeLogic said, ‘We are excited to provide ‘Analytics by Lacima’ following our strategic alliance. This will provide additional value to our customers by combining our Market, Credit and Liquidity Risk Cubes with Lacima’s powerful award winning risk analytics engine to provide a single, state of the art risk management platform.’
