Finastra positioned as Category Leader in Chartis Hedge Fund Risk Management Quadrant

Report recognizes Finastra’s depth and breadth of functionality

Finastra has been positioned as a Category Leader in the Chartis Hedge Fund Risk Management Quadrant. The ranking is featured in a recent report published by Chartis which assesses the hedge fund risk management technology landscape, Hedge Fund Risk Management Technology 2018.

“The long-tail nature of the hedge fund market, and the variety of funds available, makes it a diverse landscape when it comes to risk management technology,” said Sidhartha Dash, Research Director at Chartis Research. “With changes affecting the way that funds operate – from demand for more reporting to new product lines – funds need flexible technology that can adapt accordingly.”

Chartis believes that the way hedge funds buy and use risk management technology is largely influenced by three variables: size; strategy and sectoral focus; and the background, experience and personal preferences of their managers. Vendors are rated in the quadrant based on the completeness of their offering and their market potential. Finastra is recognized as having best-in-class capabilities across its risk metrics, asset class support and compliance, regulatory and investor reporting offerings and presence in the market, based on market penetration and innovation.

“Chartis has positioned Finastra highly in its analysis based on our depth and breadth of functionality. This is another significant achievement for our buy-side business,” said Nadeem Syed, CEO at Finastra. “It demonstrates how Finastra is delivering against the risk, regulatory and compliance needs of the investment management industry, helping them to address key challenges. It also reflects the significant progression of our risk management and compliance capabilities, based on many years of experience serving some of the world’s leading investment management firms.”
