MidOcean Partners Selects Quantifi’s Single Solution to Replace Existing External Provider

Quantifi, a specialist provider of risk, analytics and trading solutions, has been selected by MidOcean Partners, a leading investment firm, to replace their existing external solution. Formed in early 2009 to invest in bank loans, high yield bonds, mezzanine and special solutions, MidOcean’s investment approach is based on intensive and independent financial analysis, preservation of capital and diversification, and active portfolio management.

MidOcean sought an integrated solution to deliver consistent analytics and a single view of risk. Following a detailed review of several competing solutions, Quantifi was chosen because of its modern technology platform and state-of-the-art functionality which could be tailored to support MidOcean’s investment strategies.

Quantifi delivers cross-asset trading, front-to-back operations, position management, market, credit, counterparty and liquidity risk management, margining, and regulatory reporting all on a single integrated platform. As well as supporting the key regulatory and industry practices, Quantifi applies the latest technology innovations to provide new levels of usability, flexibility, and ease of integration. This translates into a dramatically lower time to market, a lower total cost of ownership and significant improvements in operational efficiency.

“The ability to anticipate and respond to market and portfolio changes are key motivators for investment managers to maintain a strong risk function. Next generation analytics is an important component of this capability,” comments Pradiv Mahesh, Sales Director, Americas, Quantifi. “Our continued success in the buy-side space is a combination of breadth of functionality with agile technology that can be reshaped as investment strategies evolve. We look forward to working with MidOcean Partners and positively impacting their business,” continues Pradiv.
