BST Awards 2019: Best overall buy-side product, 2019—Quantifi

Best product

The first of two categories decided by the WatersTechnology editors, announced on the afternoon of the BST Awards luncheon in London on November 1, went to Quantifi, thanks to its multi-asset, front-to-back-office Portfolio Management Solution (PMS). The Paris-based risk, analytics and trading technology specialist also won the best integrated middle-office platform and the best buy-side pricing/valuation service categories in this year’s awards.

According to Rohan Douglas, founder and CEO of Quantifi, the firm has noticed a growing trend among buy-side firms looking for client-centric solutions that can support them and adapt to their investment strategies and processes, as opposed to the other way round. “Firms that adopt solutions-centric software like Quantifi are able to implement faster, reduce risk, reduce costs, and more rapidly take advantage of market opportunities,” he says. “By selecting Quantifi, our clients are able to focus on their core skillsets of delivering enhanced returns for their clients and investors.”

Douglas explains that the cloud is a key focus for Quantifi right now as capital markets firms of all description look to migrate part or all of their applications and processes to the cloud. To that end, the firm’s cloud-based PMS provides clients with an environment that optimizes operations for greater flexibility and agility, while also allowing processing scalability to accommodate their various needs.

Quantifi’s cloud strategy is also at the heart of its overall business plan going forward, with one of the industry’s largest providers playing a prominent role. “With Microsoft Azure, we can offer cloud capabilities to firms that have traditionally used on-premises implementations,” Douglas says. “We have successfully migrated a number of clients to our cloud solution with no disruption to their existing processes. Azure is also a key enabler for our Microservices architecture,” he says.

By winning this category, Quantifi joins an elite group of past recipients, including Advise Technologies (2012); LCH.Clearnet (2013); Vermilion Software (2014); Algomi (2015); Commcise (2016); Thasos Group (2017) and Nasdaq (2018).
