HFMWeek names TS Imagine 2013’s Most Innovative Technology Provider
NEW YORK, December 19, 2013 – TS Imagine, a leading provider of real-time portfolio and risk management solutions to the global financial community, today announced that it was named “Most Innovative Technology Provider” of 2013 by HFMWeek. The annual US Hedge Fund Services Awards recognizes those providers that have outperformed their peers through the volatility of the last year by demonstrating exceptional customer service or innovative product development.
TS Imagine has a twenty-year track record of providing real-time investment management solutions to the global financial community to help investors make more informed decisions and drive better returns. Its flagship product, the TS Imagine Trading System, was the first integrated portfolio and risk management product designed to help maximize returns and manage risk, achieve transparency, and gain operational efficiencies while removing the costs and complications of in-house systems through its fully hosted cloud offering. The TS Imagine Trading System works with multiple asset classes and across an array of trading strategies.
“TS Imagine’s thoughtful and bleeding-edge approach to trading and risk management technology is the gold standard for the sector,” noted HFMWeek’s panel of judges. “The firm’s solutions are highly flexible, adaptable for an array of businesses and hugely impressive in their usability. We’re pleased to honor the company’s continued commitment to innovation in our industry.”
Christine Farrier, Vice President, Marketing Communications at TS Imagine, accepted the award, saying, “Winning this award in the same year the firm celebrates its 20th anniversary is particularly special. After two decades in business, we are still driven by the same goal that inspired us on day one: creating innovative new products that help our customers achieve better results. Our success is built on the dedication of our employees, the strength of the collaborative relationships we have nurtured with our partners, and most importantly, the loyalty and support of our customers.”
The TS Imagine Trading System has served thousands of traders, risk and portfolio managers, as well as operations and technology professionals across the world’s leading hedge funds, funds of funds, brokerage firms, asset managers and investment banks since its launch. This is TS Imagine’s fourth HFMWeek award in the last three years. Its other recent wins are:
In addition, earlier this year TS Imagine co-founder and President Steven Harrison was recognized by Institutional Investor for inclusion in the 2013 Trading Technology 40 List.
TS Imagine’s industry recognition is built in part on the firm’s development and deployment over the past two years of products leveraging the robust real-time analytics of the TS Imagine Trading System. These recent products include the TS Imagine Risk Aggregator, a web portal that provides greater transparency into investments; TS Imagine Financial Platform (IFP), an environment that extends TS Imagine’s capabilities by allowing for the creation of TS Imagine Apps by both internal and external developers; the TS Imagine Marketplace, an online community for distributing and obtaining TS Imagine Apps; and TS Imagine Real-time Risk and Compliance (RRC), which enables rules-based limit monitoring at both the portfolio and fund level with the ability to scale to handle large volumes at high speeds.
