London and New York, April 27, 2018 - Quantifi, a provider of risk, analytics and trading solutions, today announced that YMER SC AB (YMER), the first structured credit fund in Sweden, has selected Quantifi as its core Pricing and risk management solution, across its investment business.
YMER primarily invests in CLOs, Synthetic CDOs and ABS and targets above average returns for domestic pension funds, insurance companies, family offices, and trusts. YMER will use Quantifi to support the fund’s complex portfolios of diverse investment strategies, as they look to increase their investment focus and expand into alternatives. Quantifi was one of several providers considered by YMER. As a new fund, YMER wanted to partner with a reputable technology provider that was robust, easy-to-use and offered broad product coverage including complex assets. YMER also wanted a solution that would allow them to be up and running quickly and that could scale with the fund to meet future needs.
“Quantifi was by far the best solution we had seen. We liked the fact that Quantifi offered exactly what we needed without an expensive development process and that the technology is scalable to support the fund as we grow,” comments Stefan Engstrand, CEO, YMER. “We have been particularly impressed with the enhanced level of functionality and flexibility to configure the solution to our needs. It is this, combined with the fast time to market and uncompromising support, why we believe we made the right choice in selecting Quantifi. I would highly recommend Quantifi,” continues Stefan Engstrand.
