LONDON – 30 September 2020 – Cassini Systems, the leading provider of pre- and post-trade margin and collateral analytics for derivatives markets, today won Global Investor Group’s Investment Excellence Award for Post-Trade Solution of the Year. A panel of judges composed of senior market participants selected the winners from shortlists identified by the Global Investor editorial team.
The Investment Excellence Awards celebrate outperformance, innovation and achievement in asset management and fund services. This year’s awards also recognise organisations continuing to put clients first and adapting best to uncertain times.
Luke Jeffs, managing editor of Global Investor Group, said: “Collateral efficiency and optimisation became crucial in the volatility that followed the escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic as firms struggled to find the resources to meet their significantly increased margin calls. Cassini Systems helped clients weather this period of heightened activity and won many plaudits as firms look to reshape their businesses to insulate themselves against future market shocks.”
Liam Huxley, CEO and founder of Cassini, said: “It’s a great honour for us to earn this award among a field of strong competitors that provide a wide range of valued post-trade solutions. We have seen significant increased traction globally – particularly since we’ve expanded our presence in the Asia Pacific and North American regions – as asset management firms and hedge funds seek to achieve efficiencies and make trading decisions that factor in the entire lifecycle cost of each trade.”
Cassini’s platform provides the only full front-to-back solution covering margin, collateral and cost analytics for all classes of cleared and uncleared over-the-counter derivatives as well as futures and options. It integrates into post-trade collateral management, treasury and risk systems – enabling clients to bring post-trade cost analytics into the pre-trade process. Cassini is also integrated into key asset management platforms to facilitate leveraging analytics with little implementation overhead.
