In this article, CSI speak to Rohan Douglas, CEO of Quantifi, regarding how Quantifi operates and also engage in discussions around market challenges and developments.
Q: How do you differentiate yourself from your competitors?
A: One differentiating factor is that our technology infrastructure was built from the ground up. Whereas other vendors may offer, for example, add-on scenario analysis functions, we can produce faster results because it has always been an integral part of the risk engine. Equally, our analytics library was built on a .Net platform, so performance has always been a key element of the product. Another differentiator is that we bring on board experienced people from the industry, so we better understand the nature of our clients' needs.

Q: What will be the long-term consequences of the crisis on confidence and liquidity? What kinds of institutions will have to make the biggest changes to their processes and will some of the more exotic structured finance products simply not get done any more?
Over the past 12 months, Quantifi experienced double-digit growth in new business, high client retention, and industry recognition with a number of significant awards.
