Introducing FVC

Future Value Consultants (FVC) is a research and analytics consultancy, specialising in structured product research, stress testing structured products, independent structured product and derivative valuations, private debt valuations and custom index calculation.

FVC is a unique organisation with skills, expertise and systems across many areas within investment analysis. Our background is in structured products and the diversity and technical detail of that market has helped us build up capabilities in different areas.

When our structured products research reporting service started in 1999, FVC became a true pioneer of the concept of independent technical quantitative analysis for financial advisers. This suite of web-delivered services is relied upon by thousands of professionals in the industry based in the UK, USA and elsewhere and we strive to remain market leaders.

In addition to our quantitative expertise and scalable systems, we believe that the clarity of design and expression of our analysis is very important. All our services are designed to be user friendly and intuitive to provide exactly what is required for each of our clients and users.

Our services divide into those for institutions such as investment banks and distributors with the scale, flexibility and robustness that this group expects and those aimed at a larger audience of financial advisers and brokers for whom clarity and ease of use is very important. All of the company's services are set up with client support the highest priority.

We have added many services over the years. In 2015 FVC launched its real-time market leading stress testing tool complementing our existing valuation and research services. Also in 2015, FVC was selected to act as sole calculation agent for the UK Structured Product Association for the publication of standardised risk ratings and sector performance statistics for the UK market. In 2018 we designed and built a portfolio optimiser tool to provide new ways to compare structured products and funds.
