Misys Wins “Best Portfolio Management Software Provider” in US HFM Week Awards 2013

Misys Sophis VALUE recognised by HFM Week for its portfolio management capabilities following its success in the risk category at the European awards

Misys, the global application software and services company is pleased to announce it has won the award for “Best Portfolio Management Software Provider” for Misys Sophis VALUE at the US service awards from leading hedge fund publication, HFM Week.

The success marks the second award that Misys’ flagship buy-side platform has won at HFM Week’s awards in 2013 following the “Best Risk Management Technology Provider” at the European awards ceremony in London earlier this year. Misys Sophis VALUE’s successes confirm its leadership position as a fully integrated cross-asset portfolio and risk management solution for the buy-side, especially when considering that the platform outperformed its competitors with best of breed solutions that have a sole focus in their respective categories.

HFM Week’s US awards are designed to identify the region’s top performers from the hedge fund industry, as well as the service providers who have led the way in terms of innovation, service to clients and overall expertise in their field. One of the main reasons for the platform’s recent industry recognition is its ability to deliver integrated holistic portfolio and risk management capabilities that enable hedge fund managers to measure portfolio risk, carry out stress tests and perform VaR and liquidity risk calculations in real time and across multiple asset classes. Integrating portfolio and risk management functions in a single view provides hedge funds with a competitive advantage over their peers by allowing them to leverage real-time portfolio and risk analytics to make more informed trading decisions.

Jean-Baptiste Gaudemet, Director of Misys Sophis Product Management, comments, “We are honored that Sophis VALUE has again been recognised by HFM Week as a leading portfolio and risk management solution. Our key objective when shaping the product strategy is to ensure the functionality and asset class coverage we deliver to our investment management clients meet their rapidly changing requirements. Our goal is to continue to deliver market-leading portfolio and risk management solutions to our customers, which provide the ability to accurately manage cross-asset portfolios and risk via an integrated system that spans the entire business.”

Earlier this year, Misys announced the release of the latest version of the award-winning software, Misys Sophis VALUE v5, which provides users with a modern and updated interface to improve the usability of the system, as well as the addition of several key modules to improve functionality and asset class coverage. Several enhancements for pre-trade risk control, liquidity risk management and investment accounting in the front-office have also been added to answer the increasing need for further risk measures and analytics, stricter controls and accurate reporting among investment management firms.
