The Valuation Control Group (VC) is responsible for performing validation of the firms calculated data. In addition to OTC marks this covers computed inputs such as volatility surfaces, interests rate curves and dividends.
Each such data set that the firm computes internally needs to be validated against a third party source.
There is an increased requirement in this area to standardize work with the trading floor and risk systems which will lead to work in the following areas
Calibrations of input data, leveraging front office systems wherever possible
Re-pricing, using front office systems where possible
Fully systematized workflow
