History

Since 1995, Principia has been dedicated to the innovation, development and support of software that addresses the ever-changing requirements of structured finance market participants.

Principia's founding partners bring over three decades of structured finance and capital markets experience to the company, having held senior management positions within leading financial institutions.

Coming to market as a proven portfolio management, risk analytics and valuation platform, the partners’ vision was to develop the Principia Structured Finance Platform (Principia SFP) into the most comprehensive solution available for the management and administration of structured finance portfolios.

Today, that vision is a reality. Principia SFP allows the complete integration of data from any external or internal source and consolidates multiple systems and business lines onto one platform. Within this dedicated environment organizations can manage and monitor all structured credit and fixed income assets, liabilities and derivatives. This enables more consistent, detailed and timely investment analysis, transparent risk management and reporting and streamlined operational control, right through to accounting.

A broad range of financial institutions and independent investment managers use Principia to analyze their investments, manage their risks and streamline their operations.

The company has won Credit magazine's annual technology innovation award for three consecutive years in 2008, 2009 and 2010 recognizing its dedication to delivering the functionality required by structured finance bond holders.
