Compass Analytics was founded with the following strategic principles: First, Compass would make a niche for itself in the non-agency collateral valuation and risk management arena. Second, Compass would offer licensing and outsourced service-based services to the industry. And finally, Compass would differentiate itself from its competitors by bringing fresh, timely solutions to the market coupled with a highly responsive, nimble development capability.
The combination of licensing analytics and providing those analytics and hedge execution on an outsourced basis has allowed Compass to stay on top of current market conventions and valuation and risk management needs as a direct participant. This daily direct experience of valuing and hedging mortgage collateral, combined with input from larger licensing clients provides Compass with comprehensive feedback which Compass can translate into more relevant, intuitive and efficient analytics
