DEMAND FOR THE SOLUTION
axiomaBlue is the result of countless discussions with clients and company’s own sense of what is needed today. It’s no secret that the business of investment management has changed - certainly in the 10 years since the global financial crisis, but the transformation began even before that. Active managers were the first to feel the pain on margins, with the proliferation and success of passive investment options. In order to succeed in today’s changing environment, firms must generate better returns. They want to do it more efficient and cost-effective way. Competition is increasing and margins are shrinking. Technology is another huge issue. In the past, investment firms built their own data centers and systems as a means of maintaining control and security. But two things happened. Investment in those systems lagged in the wake of the global financial crisis, just as cloud-computing began to gain traction. The cloud was initially rejected by the financial industry as too vulnerable from a security point of view. And that left firms struggling with the headaches and costs of trying to maintain and adapt their own legacy systems and technology.
A combination of three main features differentiates axiomaBlue from existing investment-management offerings and these are:
