London and New York, 10th November, 2021 — Quantifi, a provider of risk, analytics and trading solutions, today announced that it has won Best Integrated Middle-Office Platform at the Waters Buy-Side Technology Awards 2021.

The judging panel consisted of buy-side technology consultants and experienced WatersTechnology journalists.
Intense competition, market volatility and a challenging regulatory environment continue to raise the stakes in investment management. To gain an advantage in today’s hyper-competitive world, investment managers are under pressure to improve operations and reduce costs. Inflexible systems are often blamed for operational bottlenecks and an overreliance on manual processes. As a consequence, firms are re-evaluating their current processes and demanding more scalable and agile solutions such as Quantifi to support their middle office processes.
“Our clients are looking for a high level of integration between front, middle and back office systems across a wide range of asset classes. Quantifi delivers comprehensive risk management, accurate analytics and efficient trading, providing consistency front-to-back. At Quantifi we continue to innovate by improving efficiency and performance with modern, functionally-rich and intuitive tools.”
Rohan Douglas, CEO, Quantifi
The middle-office must also support an increasingly complex set of financial instruments and be able to manage an increasing flow of unstructured data. Firms are deploying data science to improve risk assessment and business response strategies and to bring more rigour to their operations. With Quantifi incorporating data science into its portfolio management solution, users benefit from complex client-driven analysis, strategy back-testing and ad hoc portfolio what-if analysis - all using mixed data sets from diverse sources.
Quantifi’s front-to-back PMS provides portfolio managers with intuitive trade capture, real-time position management and P&L, investor and regulatory reporting, market, credit, liquidity and counterparty risk management, comprehensive what-if analysis, margining management and collateral optimisation. 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. With an open architecture, Quantifi seamlessly integrates with clients’ existing processes and systems.
