FinAnalytica, the leading provider of real world quantitative portfolio analytics for asset managers, hedge funds and multi-manager investors, announced today that it scored the No. 1 position for innovation in the Chartis Research RiskTech 2010 Rankings. Reflecting opinions of Chartis analysts, technology buyers and end-users, FinAnalytica was named the leading innovator among 351 global risk management technology vendors. The Chartis Research report also highlighted FinAnalytica as a top mover, jumping to 47th place in the 2010 rankings from 81st place in the 2009 list.
Commenting on the results, David Merrill, FinAnalytica CEO, stated, âWeâre pleased to be recognized as a top innovator in risk management technology. FinAnalyticaâs founding vision was on improving quantitative portfolio performance through more accurate insight into investment management processes. The Chartis rankings confirm our success in this client-driven environment as FinAnalytica continues to deliver innovative risk management solutions.â
Capping off a year of tremendous growth, this new recognition follows FinAnalyticaâs recent win as Best Market Risk Solution Provider in the 2010 Waters Rankings and the three patents FinAnalytica awarded for its fat-tailed risk, optimization and valuation methodologies. FinAnalytica is earning broader acceptance of its Cognity analytics platform, which offers a great leap forward from first generation quantitative systems that face repeated criticism for their limitations, further exposed in the 2008 market crisis.
âWe take great pride in this announcement,â said FinAnalytica President Boryana Racheva-Iotova. âAs the Chartis innovation category is based on the combination of new product development, positioning and new business models, this success is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire FinAnalytica team.â
