Liquid Holdings Group, a provider of a single platform that integrates order and execution management with real-time risk, reporting, shadow NAV and managed services in the cloud for the financial services community, has been named by Hedgeweek readers as the Best Risk Management Software Provider for 2014.
In its fifth year, the annual Hedgeweek Awards are decided by Hedgeweek magazine’s subscriber base of 56,000 professionals, which include practitioners from hedge funds and other asset managers, institutional investors, service providers, analysts, and academia.
This year’s awards were determined by 1,600 Hedgeweek subscribers, who assessed and voted on the best hedge fund performers and service providers for 2014.
"The fifth edition of the Hedgeweek Awards, presented in London's Mayfair in February 2014, brought together the leading names in the global hedge funds industry to celebrate the achievements of the best performing managers and service providers in 2013. With 2014 starting positively for many hedge fund sectors, the industry is reaping the benefits of responding positively to growing regulatory demands while focusing on generating results for investors," says Hedgeweek publisher Sunil Gopolan.
“We are delighted by this affirmation of our next-generation risk management technology, which is a cornerstone of the Liquid platform. It is tremendously gratifying to see our offering recognised for excellence by our peers,” says Liquid CEO Brian Storms. “We are at the cutting edge of risk analytics and technology, enabling clients to utilise risk as another alpha-generating initiative. Our platform delivers immediate and recognisable value through its constantly evolving set of advanced analytics and its ability to compute large-scale simulations in real-time, and automate data management while ensuring accurate pricing and valuations through the platform’s managed services.
“We have been relentless in our pursuit to create a solution that serves the mission-critical needs of hedge fund managers, and this award demonstrates the impact that we are beginning to have on the market.”
The Liquid platform is distinguished, in part, by its unified real-time risk capabilities, which allow clients to actively monitor pre- and post-trade risk analytics, P&L, and performance across multiple asset classes, portfolios, and fund structures, all from a single cloud-based solution.
By partnering with Liquid, hedge funds and other asset managers are able to access a single OERMS, complete with order, execution, and risk management capabilities, shadow NAV, reporting, and managed services - quickly, cost effectively, and without the complexities of legacy technology. Larger financial institutions, such as a prime broker or managed account platform, are able to access a real-time solution to manage firm-wide risk exposures as well as exposures to their individual buy-side clients.
