Imagine Wins WatersTech Sell-Side Award for Best Analytics
Data is the new oil, according to Waters Technology, and the lifeblood of any sell-side firm. “Enter Imagine, which wins this year’s Sell-Side Technology Award in the analytics category for it’s Real-Time Risk & Compliance (RRC) product, ” writes James Rundle on waterstechnology.com. However, data is worth nothing unless a firm can adequately process and analyze it in a meaningful way. For any activity involving data, whether it’s for customer relations or trade reporting, everyone needs analytics. Moreover, it’s not just enough to be able to process the vast amounts of information that firms take in each day—they also need to be able to do it at speed, and crucially, at scale.
Enter Imagine Software, which wins this year’s Sell-Side Technology Award in the analytics category for its Real-Time Risk and Compliance (RRC) product. The key to RRC’s success isn’t that it can handle large volumes of data—any engine that holds a reasonable position in this market can do that. Instead, it’s how it chooses to present relevant information. RRC identifies accounts, for instance, that are close to breaching their profit and loss thresholds, reaching the limits of stress-tests or are deemed worthy of alerting by approaching historical value-at-risk levels, rather than merely presenting the numbers of potentially thousands of accounts.
Imagine Software has launched Imagine Risk Services, a cloud-based solution enabling investment managers to integrate risk analytics on a bespoke basis.
