London and New York, 6th April, 2017 - Quantifi, a provider of risk, analytics and trading solutions, today announced it has been awarded ‘Best Risk and technology Firm’ in the Insurance Investment Exchange Awards 2017. The awards were judged by senior individuals from leading firms from across the industry including Alliance Bernstein, Aviva Investors and Friends Life. Quantifi received the award in recognition of its value-add, responsiveness to client needs, reliability, speed of implementation, and top quality support.
Regulation in the insurance industry is focused on ensuring firms are sufficiently capitalised to absorb extreme future market shocks. Big data and regulation are changing the way portfolios are priced, traded and reported. Given this complexity, firms require more comprehensive, accurate, and transparent risk management capabilities. Technology is key in helping insurance companies deliver strong investment results and deal with a complex environment in which accounting and regulatory requirements are evolving.
"There were many credible entrants but as the judges noted, Quantifi’s creative approach to integrating systems in the face of the myriad of different – and constantly changing – regulatory demands marked them out."
