Imagine Software Announces Most Popular Risk Apps https://www.imaginesoftware.com/imagine-software-announces-most-popular-risk-apps/ https://www.imaginesoftware.com/imagine-software-announces-most-popular-risk-apps/#respond Wed, 11 May 2016 03:37:46 +0000 http://imaginesoftware.29kdev.net/?p=1912 NEW YORK– May 10, 2016 – Imagine Software provides front-to-back office risk and portfolio management to asset managers, investment banks, prime brokers, hedge funds, and institutional investors of all sizes, strategies and complexities. Today, more than 85% of clients are using Imagine’s apps or leveraging its financial platform to gain an edge in the market or streamline operations.

Imagine’s cloud offering, launched as the industry’s first in 2000, is still the most innovative, including the Imagine Financial Platform (IFP) that has grown into a unique resource for clients and industry participants. Using the IFP, Imagine’s clients and service providers can tap into Imagine’s wealth of analytics and data from any device, anytime, anywhere, to solve their most complex problems or to enhance their offering.

“When we built the IFP, our goal was to provide technology that would adapt to the needs of our clients,” said Steven Harrison, Imagine’s President, COO, and Co-Founder. “The fact that our users employ such a wide variety of apps speaks to the almost limitless number of ways the platform can be leveraged. It is incredibly rewarding to see what people can create when given the right tool and a rich environment.”

Imagine’s in-demand apps include:

Pre-Trade Compliance: This app can be used on its own or integrated within an order or portfolio management system to ensure the compliance of orders. Firms with risk limits on country, sector or issuer, for example, can confirm that orders do not breach limits prior to routing. The Imagine pre-trade compliance app can be integrated into a firm’s order workflow and queried before routing for the limit utilization of a single order or a basket. Margin Replication: Market participants can avoid untimely margin calls and better deploy capital with this Imagine app, which calculates the margin requirement of a portfolio utilizing various exchange rules, Reg T or even a prime broker’s “house rules.” This app also allows for margin stress-testing of more than fifteen factors at a time. Portfolio Rebalancing: With this app, clients can rebalance a portfolio to any set of weightings on any set of attributes. The app calculates and produces a blotter of trade suggestions required to reach targeted weightings. Regulatory and Compliance Dashboards and Reports: Imagine’s suite of compliance apps address many of today’s inter- and intra-day limits monitoring and reporting requirements, such as OPERA, Form PF, 40 Act, UCITS and AIFMD. Firms can also easily monitor their own custom limits. 

Imagine’s app marketplace provides off-the-shelf, certified apps that users can download for a comprehensive range of functionalities across data and historical analysis, operations, portfolio and risk analysis.
