Imagine Software, a provider of real-time, integrated portfolio and risk management solutions, has launched Imagine 7, the first in a series of product launches scheduled over the next 18 months.
It introduces interactive data visualisation capabilities, a new user interface, enhanced risk analytics, support for additional asset classes, advanced charting, and customised reporting capabilities.
Imagine 7 is designed to help clients respond effectively to key market trends such as sustained market volatility, the need for advanced reporting capabilities that can help attract investor inflows and address evolving regulatory requirements, and the necessity for diversified risk management methodologies.
A large number of Imagine clients participated in the company’s beta and early release programme and are already using the new system.
Steve Luo, associate director of risk management at China Merchants Securities, says: “Imagine’s new data visualisation dashboards efficiently represent liquidity risk, greeks, and P&L, making it faster to identify risk exposures. Flexible visualisations let me view data by multiple breakdowns, specify a range and drill down into the detail.”
Imagine’s chief executive Lance Smith says: “We are very proud of Imagine’s ongoing role as an industry pioneer, since our ASP service proved it was possible to deliver advanced portfolio and risk management capabilities to financial firms of all sizes—quickly, easily, and affordably. Imagine serves thousands of end users worldwide at companies ranging from the smallest hedge fund startups to the very largest hedge funds, asset managers, banks, pension funds, and other institutional businesses.”
