Imagine provides users with everything they need for their day-to-day operations: advanced software functionality, comprehensive data management (consisting of the myriad live market, credit, static data, and other elements necessary for real-time trading in today's global markets), and end-of-day and start-of-day processing services.

Key Benefits

Maximizing Investment Returns and Managing Risk: Investment decision-makers reap immediate benefits with Imagine’s robust, real-time portfolio and risk management functionality, which supports their activities across all trading strategies and asset classes. Key portfolio functionality includes unlimited portfolio drilldowns, real-time pricing, limits monitoring and control, plus live views of P&L values and greeks, and securities tracking. Risk functionality spans stress testing and historical Monte Carlo, plus intra-day portfolio VaR, factor analysis, and much more.

The operational risk and cost benefits of fast implementation, automation of manual processes, seamless integration with other third-party systems, and elimination of IT support requirements are undeniable.
