Quantifi, a specialist provider of analytics, trading and risk management solutions, today announced that it has been positioned as ‘Category Leader’ in the Chartis RiskTech Quadrant for Buy Side Risk Analytics. This recent report assesses the competitive landscape of solutions available to buy-side firms for adapting to the new market and regulatory environment and for managing risk.
Chartis, a provider of research and advisory services covering the global market for risk management technology, uses a comprehensive methodology of in-depth independent research and a clear scoring system for analysing solutions. Based on its completeness of offering and market potential, Chartis considers Quantifi to be a leading vendor in the buy-side risk analytics market.
“Buy side firms face significant new market and regulatory challenges including new asset classes, new valuation methodologies, new operational processes including central clearing, increased counterparty risk, increased liquidity risk, cost pressures and new regulatory reporting,” stated Peyman Mestchian, Managing Partner at Chartis. “We have been impressed by the depth of breadth of functionality provided by Quantifi as it addresses these challenges with a holistic, integrated approach that breaks down barriers between front, middle, and back office functions. A key differentiator for Quantifi is its open, service-based technology architecture which makes the solution easier to integrate, more flexible, and easier to support.”
As cited by Chartis, Buy-Side firms are witnessing a rapidly changing operating environment and need to not only comply with regulations but also adapt to a new marketplace. Quantifi’s solution for buy-side analytics is an integrated Portfolio Management Systems (PMS) that delivers cross-asset trading, front-to-back operations, position management, market, credit, counterparty and liquidity risk management, margining, and regulatory reporting all on a single integrated real-time platform.

This translates into dramatically lower time to market, total cost of ownership and significant improvements in operational efficiency.
