Opening Cross: Putting the ‘Custom’ in ‘Customer’


Opening Cross: Putting the ‘Custom’ in ‘Customer’

Talk to a market data manager at any firm, and chances are they view vendors and exchanges as money-grubbing monsters that exist purely to squeeze revenues from their hapless clients with little thought to customer service or satisfaction.

Buy-Side Technology Awards 2014: Best Outsourcing Provider to the Buy Side—Eagle Investment Systems

First introduced to the line-up in 2012, the best outsourcing provider category has never had a back-to-back winner. Fittingly, like a firm going through a series of vendors looking for the right solution, no company has held the top spot for more than a year in the award’s brief existence. This time around, Eagle Investment Systems has emerged on top thanks to a number of its products combining to underpin BNY Mellon’s OnCore outsourcing service, designed for the investment management industry.

Buy-Side Technology Awards 2014: Best CEP Platform—Deltix

In the brief history of the best complex-event processing (CEP) platform category at the Buy-Side Technology Awards, One Market Data has ruled the roost, winning two of the three years since the category’s inception in 2011. This year, Deltix has knocked off the defending champion, winning the award thanks to its event-based application, QuantOffice, which performs quantitative analysis for quantitative researchers by expressing and back-testing their ideas through pre- and user-defined events. The basis for this can be market data, fundamental data, digitized news, crowd-sourced earnings estimates, Twitter, and other private and unstructured data.

Buy-Side Technology Awards 2014: Best Data Provider to the Buy Side—Rimes Technologies

“Dominant” is probably the best adjective to describe Rimes Technologies’ relationship with the best data provider category at the Buy-Side Technology Awards. The New York-based vendor is undefeated since the category’s inception in 2007, making this the eighth straight year that it has emerged on top in this ever-competetive category.

Buy-Side Technology Awards 2014: Best Buy-Side Pricing/Valuation Service—Markit

It might not be a complete sweep, but Markit’s success in the Buy-Side Technology Awards’ best pricing/valuation service category is about as close as one can get. For the fifth straight year and for the seventh time in eight years, Markit’s Pricing and Portfolio Valuations services have won this award. Only Numerix’s win in 2009 separates Markit from a perfect record.

Buy-Side Technology Awards 2014: Best Buy-Side Newcomer (Vendor or Product)—S3 Partners

The best buy-side newcomer category has, since the inaugural BST Awards back in 2007, been the toughest to win by virtue of the entry numbers it attracts—on average between 15 and 20 each year. This year is no different with a total of 17 entries. Past winners include Derivative Fitch (2007); Weeden and Co. (2008); Alphacet (2009); Knight Direct (2010); StatPro (2011); Advise Technologies (2012); and DealVector (2013)—an eclectic mix of firms servicing the buy side, illustrating the acuteness of the challenge facing entrants vying for the win.
