A Pre-Trade compliance engine was essential for our UCITS fund and we found the Athena compliance workflow to be very intuitive, allowing us to quickly set up new rules and mandates as well as maintain existing ones.

The opportunity for development work to continue to enhance the system for the long-term around our future requirements was also key to the decision. We set aggressive timescales for the implementation which the CYMBA team carefully managed and delivered on time.”
