Hedgeweek voted Imagine as the “Best Risk Management Software Firm”
The readers of Hedgeweek voted Imagine as the “Best Risk Management Software Firm” for the second consecutive year at the 8th annual awards ceremony held in New York City.
The awards are decided in a reader-choice Hedgeweek online poll carried out over ten weeks. Hedgeweek’s readers include both investors and managers, as well as other industry professionals at firms including fund administrators, custodians, accountants and auditors, law firms, consultants, and fund distributors.
Imagine was also recently named as “Best Buy-Side Market Risk Management Product of the Year” by Asia Risk, “Best Portfolio Analytics System” by Bobsguide, and “Best Analytics Firm” in the Waters Technology Sell-Side Awards.
ED&F Man Capital Markets replaces legacy systems with TS Imagine’s fully-hosted, SaaS solution for high-volume, real-time analytics on cross-asset exchange and OTC trading.
When analysing performance, measuring a portfolio’s actual return answers the “what” and “when” questions –– it tells us what return the portfolio delivered over a specified period of time. While that information is obviously important, the goal of a performance attribution analysis is to go beyond “what” and “when” to explain “how” and “why”.
Managing the risks inherent in their positions, including holding sufficient margin, is absolutely essential for prime brokers. The key question is whether or not they are measuring risks and managing margin effectively and proactively.
