VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwired) -- FINCAD, the leading provider of OTC derivatives pricing, valuation, and risk analytics, today announced the establishment of the FINCAD Women in Finance Scholarship, an annual scholarship for women who are studying finance. The goal is to encourage and support outstanding women in the field of finance, particularly relating to the use of derivatives in capital markets and/or financial risk management, and to give them an opportunity to cultivate their skills and knowledge.
"FINCAD has long believed that deep market knowledge, transparency and trustworthiness play a critical role in making financial markets safe for all participants. We are all too aware that the majority of practitioners in the capital markets industry are men, and that the trend to include more women is not as rapid as it should be," said Bob Park, President and CEO of FINCAD. "This scholarship is our contribution to helping redress this balance in our industry."
The FINCAD Women in Finance Scholarship Program offers an award of US$10,000 to support graduate-level studies. It is open to women of any age and citizenship who are studying Finance in a graduate-level program. Complete application packages are due February 27, 2015 and further details are available at www.fincad.com/womeninfinance.

With deep market understanding, a client-centered business approach, and unmatched quantitative and software engineering expertise, FINCAD is uniquely positioned to lead the market in enterprise valuation and risk technology.
