ABOUT US

TRUST - SUCCESSFUL RELATIONSHIPS CAN'T EXIST WITHOUT IT.

At SCDM, we approach every business relationship with a firm commitment to earn and retain our client's trust. It is a critical component of every data management and IT solution we deliver. For us, the true benchmark of success is being there when clients need us most and coming through when challenges are greatest. That is how we have built and continue to build lasting trust.

When you need a teammate to help your business to soar to new heights, we'll be up to the challenge.

SCDM was founded in 2003 with the goal to create the most advanced analytical platform for investors in Structured Credit. The result was a business intelligence solution that not only gives easy access to a vast and customizeable set of data but also integrates many processes done by investors daily.

In 2012, SCDM entered into a joint venture with Frankfurt School of Finance & Management and established it's new headquarter in Frankfurt.

The independence and strong research background of Frankfurt School, paired with SCDM's fast and effective product development, enabled SCDM to continue to deliver superior cutting edge products in addition to structured credit.

SCDM supports an international client base consisting of central banks, investment banks, Landesbanks, insurance companies, asset managers, auditors and news agencies.
DON'T REINVENT THE WHEEL.
We strongly believe in focus. Only through focusing on doing things better, you can create value for the world. Hence, we don't believe in reinventing the wheel. If others have solved an issue, we would rather use it than waste energy through cloning it.
FOCUS ON THE USER AND ALL ELSE WILL FOLLOW.
Sounds familiar? Yes, it is part of Google's philosophy. Seriously, throughout our history we have proven a never ending desire to learn from our clients. Only through this effort we can proivide solutions to actual problems, rather than just products.
TRANSPARENCY IS CRUCIAL.
The recent crisis was greatly magnified by a lack of transparency, which continues to be a global issue. We have always been committed to provide absolute transparency through all of our products. We are relentless in our commitment to breaking down data into their core elements and adding complementary sources when useful.
PRECISION IS KEY.
Reality is far more complex than standard market models suggest. Through our privileged access to cutting edge research, we are developing highly accurate models with unparalleled simulation speeds.

DATA MANAGEMENT

A dedicated data management effort is key for effective risk- and portfolio management as reporting is not standardized in credit markets. Generally, lots of information is available, however it mostly comes in non processable formats and from many different sources that call for extraction and better storage.

With over twelve years of experience, we have developed a dedicated application to extract data from PDF documents, called S-400. Using S-400, we are extracting information with minimal manual interaction and thus guaranteeing highest data quality with unparalleled processing speed.

We not only specialize in extracting standard market values, but also offer customized data management to our clients.
