New York and London, 25th November, 2019 — Quantifi, a provider of risk, analytics and trading solutions, today announced that it has won three awards at the Waters Buy-Side Technology Awards 2019. Quantifi won Best Buy-Side Pricing/Valuation Service, Best Integrated Middle-Office Platform and one of the highest-profile categories at this year’s awards, Best Overall Buy-Side Product.
Hosted by WatersTechnology magazine, these awards recognise the leading technologies designed to allow buy-side firms to operate more efficiently, more transparently and more judiciously. The awards also recognise technologies that address the buy side's most pressing business, regulatory, operational and technology needs.
In today’s competitive environment, forward-looking investment management firms are searching for ways to enhance and differentiate their capabilities to outperform their peers. Successful firms are executing based on a combination of focused business models, agile operational competency and a strong cost discipline. With the demand on resource, the cost involved in building in-house solutions, and the level of sophistication required for analytics and risk management, firms are now directing their preference towards FinTech providers like Quantifi.
Cubillas Ding, Research Director at Celent observes, "To face up to the changing industry economics and rapid technological shifts, we see forward-thinking firms rebuild technology foundations to underpin their core investment engine. These imperatives are happening now and are no longer nice-to-haves."
For investment managers, Quantifi delivers cross-asset trading, front-to-back operations, position management, enterprise risk management, and regulatory reporting all on an integrated platform. 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.
“Investment managers require solutions that can support their evolving risk management needs and can scale to support future growth. Winning three awards in highly competitive categories demonstrates the commitment we have made to our clients to provide innovative and transformative technology, underpinned by our ongoing investment in R&D. We are delighted to have been recognised by WatersTechnology for the strength of our buy-side solution,” comments Rohan Douglas, CEO, Quantifi.
