FinAnalytica, the leading provider of multi-asset class, risk and predictive performance analytics solutions to investment managers, announced today that it has been voted best Market Risk Solution Provider in the annual Waters Rankings. The 2012 winners announced last night by Waters magazine during a ceremony at the Empire State Building in New York City were awarded based on excellence in financial IT solutions and services. With thousands of total votes cast, the firm was selected by Waters’ readers, FinAnalytica clients and other market participants.
FinAnalytica’s Cognity risk management and portfolio construction platform is the only commercial market risk solution that directly addresses the real world phenomena of fat tails, volatility clustering, skewness and dynamic dependence. The company was recently granted its fifth patent reflective of and supporting its market-leading offering.
Reflecting on the win, David Merrill, CEO, FinAnalytica, stated, “We’re ecstatic about winning this award for a second time, having also won it in 2010. This is another validation that clients and investors are increasing their level of interest in services that are capable of measuring their actual risk and return potential. Clearly, you cannot manage what you do not measure and, with this in mind, we work very diligently to help individual clients achieve their goals of proactively managing tail dynamics.”
Boryana Racheva-Iotova, President, FinAnalytica, added, “FinAnalytica was created to bring the market additional investment insight by delivering new generation risk modeling, which incorporates fat tails that are present in financial assets and portfolios. The fact that our customers and market participants voted us into the top spot is additional motivation for our team as we continue our research and development efforts.”
