Quantifi Commended by Celent for its Advanced Technology and Portfolio Management Functionality
New York and London, 15th January, 2019 — Quantifi, a provider of risk, analytics and trading solutions, today announced that it has been noted for its advanced technology and portfolio management functionality in a recent report by Celent, a leading research, advisory, and consulting firm focused on financial services technology.
In the report ‘Next Generation Portfolio and Investment Risk Capabilities’ Celent evaluated front office portfolio and risk management solutions, examining strengths related to portfolio design, construction and optimisation functions, investment decision support analytics; investment forecasting and simulations; and support for risk budgeting activities. The report notes that Quantifi’s architecture and functionality are built cohesively “from ground up” as a front-to-risk-to-back application, optimized on open, industry-standard hardware/ software stacks; and underpinned by its loosely coupled microservices foundations to improve flexibility, increase performance, and lower costs of technology deployments.
“For our notable commendations, we praise Quantifi for its ability to stay ahead of analytical developments and support complex cross-asset portfolios with diverse investment strategies; total and absolute return mandates, and structured fixed income investment portfolios including MBS, ABS, loans and hybrids. Quantifi has demonstrated a systematic and pragmatic approach in pursuing ongoing performance enhancements and evaluating new techniques to boost throughput across multiple fronts — algorithms, software, and hardware),” comments Cubillas Ding, Research Director, Celent.
Quantifi’s front-to-backportfolio management system (PMS) for the buy-side delivers cross-asset trading, front-to-back operations, position management, market, credit, and liquidity risk management, as well as regulatory reporting. As well as supporting the key regulatory requirements, Quantifi applies the latest technology innovations to provide new levels of usability, flexibility, and ease of integration. This translates into dramatically lower time to market, lower total cost of ownership, and significant improvements in operational efficiency.
“We are delighted to be recognised by Celent for our advanced technology and analytics,” comments Rohan Douglas, CEO, Quantifi. “The buy-side industry is changing on many fronts. Investor behaviour, new regulation and expanding competition are just a few of the drivers. “We are seeing a growing trend in firms looking for client-centric solutions that can adapt to their particular investment strategies and processes, rather than forcing a one-size fits all approach. Firms that adopt solutions-centric software, like Quantifi, are able to implement faster, reduce risk, reduce costs and more rapidly take advantage of market opportunities," continues Rohan.
