NEW YORK, November 5, 2021 – Qontigo, a leading provider of innovative risk, analytics and index solutions, was awarded best buy-side risk management product for its enterprise risk management system, Axioma RiskTM, at the 2021 WatersTechnology Buy-Side Technology Awards. These awards, which recognize leading technology providers for innovative solutions designed to help the buy-side operate more efficiently, are judged by a panel of buy-side focused technology consultants and experienced journalists.
The award win focused on Axioma Risk’s flexibility and modern technology infrastructure. The cloud-native portfolio risk system provides risk and portfolio managers with highly interactive analysis capabilities and batch reporting at scale. Its open architecture framework allows managers to choose their preferred data inputs – clients can connect Axioma Factor Risk Models, their own models or a combination of both across all asset classes.
