New York and London, 5th September, 2019 — Quantifi, a provider of risk, analytics and trading solutions, today announced that it has been selected by Tresidor Investment Management LLP (“Tresidor”), a recently launched London-based alternative credit manager led by Michael Phelps, the former Head of European Credit at BlackRock, to provide comprehensive risk and portfolio management systems (PMS) to support the launch of their new credit fund.
To support Tresidor’s investment strategies they required a cloud-based portfolio management solution that put sophisticated credit risk modelling first, and thereby provided consistent and accurate pre- and post-trade analytics, valuation and risk management across their full breadth of credit instruments. Following a rigorous selection process, Quantifi was chosen ahead of other providers as it offered the most advanced functionality for credit products, the most consistent and integrated approach to modelling credit risk across all types of credit, and the flexibility to easily extend to support Tresidor’s complex trading strategies.
“Quantifi’s market-leading credit analytics and open architecture made it the best choice for our fund. Leveraging Quantifi’s advanced modelling techniques helps us make faster, better- informed investment decisions, and with easy access to its model library using their rich set of APIs, we can customise and extend the solution as needed.”
