Hosted by Buy-Side Technology, these awards recognise the leading technologies and vendors in their area of expertise through an auditable and a transparent methodology underpinned by the input and experience of five buy-side-focused technology consultants:
Investit, Knadel, Deloitte Consulting, Aite Group and Tabb Group. The Best buy-side Performance Measurement and Attribution product is identified according its capabilities which includes calculation of returns for portfolio (benchmarks and composites); calculation of attribution effects for equity and fixed-income portfolios; and calculation of ex-post risk, absolute and relative, as well as other factors such as the growth of the company in terms of new clients and continuing product investment.
BÃ©nÃ©dicte Godet, Marketing Manager at BI-SAM who received this award, commented âWe are extremely pleased and honoured to receive this award for the third time in a row. We have made and continue to make a significant investment in enhancing B-One, to maintain its position as the Best Performance Measurement and Attribution product in the global asset management market. We will continue to enhance B-One according to the evolving client and market needs using the latest technologies, keeping in mind that working in partnership with our clients is always the best way to proceed.â
Victor Anderson, Editor-in-Chief of the Buy Side Technology magazine, agreed with BÃ©nÃ©dicte in saying that âOver the years, the best performance and attribution category has become one of the most keenly contested of the Buy-Side Technology Awards. However,
once again, BI-SAMâs B-One offering is a deserved winner in this category. B-Oneâs latest enhancements, which includes, among other things, a new GIPS module, are testimony to BISAMâs ability to identify the most pressing needs across the buy side and address those
needs through a combination of top-end technology and outstanding service. BI-SAMâs global expansion, with clients implementing B-One in a number of new locations, was also been a key criterion that contributed to BI-SAMâs win.â
