The judges, comprised of an international panel of industry specialists from the renowned consultancies the Aite Group, Celent, Citisoft, Cutter Associates, Investit, and Knadel, decided to award this category to BI-SAMâs B-One solution, based on functionality (calculation of returns, attribution for equity, balanced and fixed-income portfolios and ex-post, absolute and relative risk, workflow capabilities), its established and still growing international client base as well as its positive client references.
Alexandre Harkous, CEO at BI-SAM who received this award, said âWinning this award again is a testimony to the investment BI-SAM has made to deliver a service-oriented open technological platform based on the latest technologies providing superior performance reporting and analytics functionality. BI-SAM is extremely honoured to be recognised as Best Performance and Attribution system for the second time in a row. This proves that not only is BI-SAM the system of choice for performance and attribution but also that we have made constant efforts to remain at this positionâ.
Victor Anderson, Editor of the Buy Side Technology magazine, who presented the award, commented: âThat BI-SAM deserves this award for the second consecutive year is, in my mind, unquestionable. BI-SAM continues to enhance its B-One platform in order to provide buy-side firms with market-leading functionality, illustrated by the firmâs growing client base. BI-SAM has, as expected, conquered the European performance and attribution market, but it is the recent addition of a number of high-profile global clients (including Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia and the US) that fully underlines its place as the market leader.â
