Intense competition, market volatility, and a demanding regulatory environment continue to raise the bar for investment managers. Many firms are also constrained by legacy systems, which cannot be easily adapted to new asset classes and the ever increasing amounts of data. As firms look to navigate growth and market uncertainties in the coming years, how they execute risk technology matters. The disruption triggered by recent global events is a reminder that sound risk management is more crucial than ever for investment management firms. To ensure a robust risk management framework, firms require sophisticated data and risk analytics capabilities.
“With buy-side risk evolving we are seeing a common theme – how to better leverage and harness large volumes of data to make more informed investment decisions and optimise performance. It is therefore no surprise that data science is fast becoming a prominent function in buy-side firms,” comments Avadhut Naik, Head of Solutions, Quantifi. “As a proponent of next-generation technology, our clients are benefiting from our investment in data science and Python as they have access to more flexible ways of analysing the data,” continues Avadhut.
For investment managers Quantifi delivers cross-asset trading, front-to-back operations, position management, market, credit and liquidity risk management and regulatory reporting – all on an integrated platform. Quantifi’s data science enabled platform provides clients with the ability to do complex data analysis and flexible reporting using Python, Jupyter and other popular data science tools. By applying the latest technology innovations Quantifi provides new levels of usability, flexibility and ease of integration – this translates into lower time to market, lower total cost of ownership and significant improvements in operational efficiency.
