TS Imagine Voted Number One System in Three Key Categories
(29 January, 2021): TS Imagine, a leader in cloud-based portfolio, risk and margin solutions for capital markets, is proud to announce that it has scooped up five awards in this year’s Bobsguide fintech rankings. The annual rankings are based on nominations and votes from market participants who are senior technology, risk and finance professionals from around the globe.
TS Imagine has been voted as the number one system in three key categories:
- Risk management
- Portfolio management
- Widest product coverage
Narrowly missing out on the top spot in two additional categories, TS Imagine was also voted in second place for:
- Customer support
The TS Imagine platform delivers best-of-breed, real-time risk, portfolio and margin management for over 8m+ listed instruments while fully supporting OTC trading. The platform natively includes the data to run analytics including a global security master, real-time pricing, historical data and derived data (e.g. cross-asset curves).
The solution is available as a cloud-based, SaaS platform offering scalability, operational and cost efficiencies. While off-the-shelf systems are notoriously inflexible, TS Imagine enables its clients to customize the system to their requirements with an open-API platform (TS Imagine Financial Platform), that is used by more than 80% of clients.
Lance Smith, CEO of TS Imagine said “We are both proud and humbled by the show of support from the market and the recognition of our solutions in these key categories. This result is a testament to the strength of our team and our platform, as well as the growing appreciation from firms for enterprise-grade functionality and flexibility delivered in a cloud-based, SaaS platform.”
