Quantifi to Support Axiom Alternative Investments’ New Credit Fund

QuantifiThe provider of risk, analytics and trading solutions will be supporting the launch of Axiom Alternative Investments‘ new credit fund. For investment managers, Quantifi delivers cross-asset trading, front-to-back operations, position management, enterprise risk management, and regulatory reporting all on an integrated platform.

The long/short fund invests in credit instruments and aims to capture the value created by structural price anomalies. With the launch of its Synthetic Credit Opportunity Fund, boutique investment firm Axiom sought to replace their in-house system with an external cloud-enabled solution that provided the advanced functionality necessary to support non-standard products.

The investment management industry is undergoing a period of change, driven by regulatory developments, shifting investor preferences, cost pressures, and advancing technologies. Asset managers are increasingly being attracted to flexible and specialized cloud-based platforms in order to optimize their business and further their reach in the market. Quantifi applies the latest technology innovations to provide new levels of usability, flexibility, and ease of integration. This translates into dramatically lower time to market, the lower total cost of ownership, and significant improvements in operational efficiency.

David Benamou, Chief Investment Officer at Axiom Alternative Investments, commented: “As our structured credit business is expanding, we wanted a more powerful set of models and analytics. Our decision to work with Quantifi was driven by its strong track record as well as the flexibility and ease of use of the solution.”

Rohan Douglas, Chief Executive Officer at Quantifi, said: “We are delighted Axiom has chosen to partner with Quantifi as they look to grow their business. Axiom is one of a number of new clients to join our investment management client community. Our success in this space demonstrates the demand for flexible, sophisticated solutions that allow investment managers to accurately quantify and model the risk they face and operate at the highest level of efficiency. We look forward to working with Axiom.”
