    NEW YORK - Axioma continues to earn recognition for its innovative enterprise market risk analytics and portfolio construction solutions, and was recently named winner of two leading industry awards: the Risk.net Market Technology Awards 2018, and the American Financial Technology Awards (AFTAs). Axioma was the recipient of Risk.net’s Buy-Side Market Risk Management Product of the Year, and at the AFTAs, earned the Best Third-Party Technology Vendor IT Team award.

    “The investment management industry has embraced the critical role technology plays in driving business growth,” said Fabien Couderc, Axioma’s chief technology officer. “Our goal has always been to anticipate industry changes and clients’ needs and to develop solutions that will help them both adapt to and navigate the landscape. We intend to continue this momentum, as well as our commitment to growing market share, into 2018.”

    The Risk.net Market Technology Awards recognize technology solutions that support trading or investment in listed, OTC derivatives and cash markets. The awards are determined by an expert judging panel comprised of senior industry executives and the editors of Risk.net and Risk magazine. Axioma was awarded the Buy-Side Market Risk Management Product of the Year for Axioma Risk, a natively built, cloud-based multi asset class risk management platform that offers asset managers, asset owners and hedge funds a flexible, scalable and customizable risk solution for the highly complex and constantly evolving multi asset class investment environment. Axioma was also recognized for its growing global market share, competitive position, and innovation, among other qualifiers.

    The AFTAs, now in their 13th year, are hosted by WatersTechnology and recognize excellence in the deployment and management of financial technology within the asset management and investment banking communities. The team behind Axioma Risk earned the title of Best Third-Party Technology Vendor IT Team at this year’s awards for the strategic technology, oversight and product leadership they provide to support existing client needs and emerging market opportunities.

    “The current market and regulatory environment has compelled many firms to revisit and re-evaluate their risk management technology setup,” said Virginie O’Shea, a research director at Aite Group. “Awards such as these can help firms to identify providers such as Axioma that are considered best in class in their respective areas.”
