BUY-SIDE TECHNOLOGY AWARDS: Best data provider to the buy side: RIMES Technologies

Cecile Distel, Alessandro Ferrari and Silvia Marekova, RIMES Technologies

RIMES Technologies is the third and final archetypical buy-side technology provider of this year’s Buy-Side Technology Awards. Between RIMES and the other two vendors—BI-SAM and Cadis—these three buy-side specialists have accounted for 11 out of a possible 12 category wins since 2007, which underscores the effectiveness of the highly focused, client-centric approach.

RIMES’ buy-side success—and indeed its success in capturing the best data provider category every year since the launch of the awards back in 2007—is forged on the back of its SmartFiles Technology, underpinning its three offerings: the RIMES Benchmark Data Service, the RIMES Desktop, and Barra Performance on RIMES.

The RIMES Benchmark Data Service is a fully managed offering designed to allow middle and back offices to outsource their index data workflow, improving the quality, speed and reliability of managing multiple benchmarks.

The RIMES Desktop is designed to support portfolio management and valuation, fund administration and custodial services, technical analysis, trading operations, risk management and compliance, and fundamental research, by providing access to more than 400 databases covering all asset classes with a single, intuitive interface via a secure internet connection.

Barra Performance on RIMES combines MSCI analytics with RIMES’ data and delivery, allowing transaction-based performance attribution.

All of RIMES’ offerings are powered by its SmartFiles technology, developed to handle over 400 databases from 143 vendors including all the buy-side names that really matter: Advent, Algorithmics, Asset Control, MSCI Barra, BI-SAM, Cadis, Charles River Development  DST Global Solutions, Eagle Investments Systems, Fidessa, FinAnalytica, GoldenSource, Microgen, Odyssey, Orfival, Ortec, Simcorp, SS&C, StatPro, SunGard, thinkFolio, and UBS Delta, as well as numerous proprietary systems. —VBA

RIMES provides the broadest and most comprehensive data provision service in the industry.

“For RIMES Technologies to win this award every year since 2007 is a credit to our service and our people. Being recognized as a buy-side specialist is particularly important to us as we have been providing investment managers, hedge funds and pension funds with data and analytics since 1998, when we started delivering the first cloud-based, highly customized financial data aggregation service. Today, we remain committed to the provision of a fully managed data service. We use a consultative approach to understand our clients’ requirements. We then source all the data they need, validate it according to their specifications, and customize it to fit any in-house or third-party applications. We believe that the combination of service, technology and data is what makes our proposition so compelling; and in order to support our clients’ growing requirements for benchmark data we have created a worldwide network of client-service hubs in London, New York, Nicosia, Paris, Seattle, Shanghai, and Sydney, all seamlessly interconnected to provide outstanding 24/7 service.”
—Christian Fauvelais, CEO, RIMES Technologies
