New York, London, Paris, Singapore – 22nd April 2015 – Quartet FS, a leading provider of in-memory aggregation and analytics technology, announces that its ActivePivot platform has been recognized the “Best Sell-Side Analytics Product” and the “Best Overall Sell-Side Product of the Year” during the third annual Sell-Side Technology Awards. The awards were hosted on 21st April by WatersTechnology and Sell-Side Technology.
The Sell-Side Technology Awards are designed to recognize excellence among third-party vendors through an auditable and transparent methodology. The awards are judged by four sell-side CIOs/consultants and four of Waters magazine’s senior staff members.
“We are delighted to have our achievements recognized by Waters’ prestigious Sell-Side Technology awards. The award win demonstrates Quartet FS’ 10-year expertise in complex analytics that requires aggregation of massive amounts of fast-moving data. Typical uses include intraday liquidity reporting, collateral optimization, pre-deal VaR, credit or margin checking and real-time P&L. This becomes especially important with complex problems requiring analysis on a bank’s entire portfolio such as marginal impact due to Central Clearing, xVA/PFE or capital charges” said Kathy Perrotte, co-founder and managing director of Quartet FS.
She continues: “Over the past few years, we have seen a growing need from sell-side organizations to manage risk for operational reasons. This means that business users need the ability to calculate risk metrics in a very granular way (whether for real-time, intraday or historical analysis), perform ‘what-if’ simulations and pinpoint outliers hidden in hundreds of risk metrics. ActivePivot excels in answering these demands, especially in the context of regulatory mandates such as those introduced with Basel III/FRTB, Dodd-Frank and EMIR.
Victor Anderson, editor in chief of Waters, said: “The Waters jury elected Quartet FS’ ActivePivot as the “Best Overall Sell-Side Product of the Year” and the “Best Sell-Side Analytics Product” based on the track record of its in-memory aggregation technology in enterprise risk and front-office trading, as well as its established presence in global sell-side organizations.”
