Bankâs Asset Management Division has implemented Axiomaâs PortfolioPrecision
optimization software in its international operations after successfully using the software for several years in the United States. It was the largest of several major Axioma implementations at leading investment management firms during the quarter.
"We have been using Axioma for the past several years as the optimization tool
for our quantitative equity and multi-asset class strategies," said Janet
Campagna, managing directorâAdvanced Research & Quantitative Strategies,
at DB Asset Management. "We were originally drawn to Axioma because they
offer a complete optimization suite designed for specific use in financial
engineering. PortfolioPrecision is extremely fast, and the compiled libraries allow for ease of use across all of our applications.
"In addition, the flexibility Axioma provides helps us to solve many different types of problems quickly and efficiently without the need for a lot of additional work," Campagna added. "Finally, we have found Axioma's research department to be very responsive to our needs and willing to dedicate support to all our requirements as they have evolved. The combination of speed, flexibility and strong customer support has led us to choose Axioma as a cornerstone for our globalization efforts."
SebastiÃ¡n Ceria, President and CEO of Axioma, said that Deutsche Bank joins
the ranks of other leading investment houses that have chosen Axioma as their
provider of optimization software. "Deutsche Bank is an early adopter of leading- edge technology and a natural customer for Axiomaâs innovative solutions," Ceria added.
