    Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

    Axioma Risk™, the company’s multi-asset class risk management system, was named Best Buy-Side Risk/Portfolio Analytics Product by Waters Technology in its 2016 Buy-Side Technology Awards. This award is recognition of the growing demand for sophisticated enterprise-wide solutions capable of handling the added complexity of risk management in a multi-asset class environment.

    “We are incredibly proud of this award as it validates our team’s tireless efforts to deliver to market a truly next generation multi-asset class risk solution,” said Ian Webster, chief operating officer at Axioma. “Effective risk management requires solutions with advanced analytics and superior computational power, particularly as the popularity of multi-asset class strategies grows. Cloud-based Axioma Risk offers the necessary flexibility and scalable resources to provide these essential capabilities.”

    The unifying Axioma Risk platform provides a single view of risk across the front, middle and back office. This single view empowers firms to pursue proprietary strategies that yield better investment performance, while also managing the demands of investors and regulators for more transparent risk management and risk reporting. Since its launch in 2010, Axioma Risk has been implemented by leading buy-side firms globally, including BNY Mellon’s HedgeMark and Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (SEB), and continues to gain traction as the industry’s pace of innovation reveals the limitations of legacy solutions in effectively managing risk.

    Now in its 10th year, the Buy-Side Technology Awards recognize the leading technology and vendors in the space.  Waters utilizes an auditable and transparent methodology to select award-winning solutions. This methodology is underpinned by input and experience from seven judges, including five buy-side-focused technology consultants and two of Buy-Side Technology's editors.
