Quantifi, a leading provider of risk, analytics and trading solutions, today announced it has been selected by Arini Capital (“Arini”) to support its more complex credit instruments. Founded by Hamza Lemssouguer in 2021, Arini is a specialised alternative asset manager that seeks to deliver uncorrelated, absolute returns through a fundamental and opportunistic approach to credit investing.
Hedge funds face a rapidly changing operating environment in which key drivers – including regulation, market structure and investor behaviour – have a profound effect on risk management and its technology. To thrive, firms need to harness the latest technology. Following a rigorous selection process, Arini selected Quantifi to run risk, structure trades and perform stress tests and scenario analysis for its structured credit strategy.
Jeysson Abergel, head of trading and macro strategy at Arini, commented: “We selected Quantifi because of its deep understanding of the structured credit market. With Quantifi, we have access to market-leading analytics that are flexible and scalable.”
For investment managers, Quantifi delivers cross-asset trading, front-to-back operations, position management, enterprise risk management and regulatory reporting, all on an integrated platform. As well as supporting the key regulatory requirements, Quantifi applies the latest technology innovations to provide new levels of usability, flexibility and ease of integration. This translates into dramatically lower time to market, lower total cost of ownership and significant improvements in operational efficiency.
“We’re delighted to welcome Arini to our growing investment management community. Given the complexity of structured credit, we have seen several investment managers make the move to Quantifi,” comments Rohan Douglas, CEO, Quantifi. “We have invested significant resources into data science technologies and analytics. A key focus for Quantifi has been to make all our interfaces Pythonic so that it’s easy for our clients to get up and running and build their own custom analytics without relying on an internal development team. Early adoption of emerging technologies gives our clients a competitive edge. We look forward to helping Arini drive the operational efficiency and resilience required to support its future growth,” continues Rohan.
