– Misys recognised as the leading technology provider to US Hedge Funds, building on its success in the 2013 portfolio management category
LONDON & NEW YORK – Misys, the global application software and services company has won the award for “Best Technology Overall” for its FusionInvest solution at the US service awards from leading hedge fund publication, HFM Week.
The success marks the third award that the flagship buy-side platform from Misys has won with HFM Week in the last two years following the “Best Risk Management Technology Provider” and “Best Portfolio Management System” at the European and US award shows respectively in 2013. This year’s achievement for FusionInvest as the best technology overall confirms its leadership position in the market as a fully integrated cross-asset portfolio and risk management solution for investment management firms.
HFM Week’s US awards are designed to identify the region’s top performers from the hedge fund industry, as well as the service providers who have led the way in terms of innovation, service to clients and overall expertise in their field. Misys FusionInvest’s success can be attributed to its ability to deliver integrated portfolio and risk management capabilities that enable hedge fund managers to measure portfolio risk and carry out a wide range of risk analytics in real time across multiple asset classes. By combining portfolio management, analytics and pre-trade compliance in a single view, hedge funds can attain a competitive advantage over their peers by making smarter and faster trading decisions.

The key objective of Misys FusionInvest is to ensure that the capabilities and asset class coverage we deliver to our investment management clients help them overachieve on their aggressive targets. Our goal is to continue to deliver market-leading portfolio and risk management solutions to our clients, which provide the ability to accurately manage cross-asset portfolios and risk across the entire investment process.”
