NEX Optimisation awarded 2017 HFM ‘Best Technology – Overall’ and ‘Best Technology – Innovation’ Awards for ENSO Services in the US and Asia

Innovation – two year standing reputation in the U.S. and ground-breaking first year in Asia

On Thursday 19 October 2017, NEX Optimisation received the US industry’s ”Best Technology – Overall” and the APAC industry’s ”Best Technology – Innovation” awards for the continued success of ENSO Core and the recent launch of PIVOT (Payments and Investment Optimisation Tool).

Through its ongoing investment in both core technology and R&D, ENSO delivers a refined user experience with real world actionability for treasury teams across our community. PIVOT, coupled with ENSO Core’s exposure management, financial analytics and replication functionality, makes a significant stride towards a “point-click-execute” dynamic collateral management platform.

NEX Optimisation received these awards as a result of the scale of ENSO’s services and the ability to work with some of the best COO’s and treasurers across the buy-side community to create unified products which all customers can leverage and which will continue to push the industry forward.

Matthew Bernard, CEO of ENSO, said “We would like to thank HFM and their community for recognising our heavy technology investment and our ability to produce significant enhancements for our growing user base. We continue to innovate every day – it’s part of our culture and we are excited about the future.”

The editors of HFM said “HFM is proud to recognise groups in the industry which stand out and display excellence in their service to the hedge fund sector. Based on the views of our independent panel of hedge fund operational leaders, ENSO has once again proven themselves by winning both best overall technology in our US awards and the most innovative technology provider in the APAC region, based on the views of local managers. We congratulate them on their continued success.”

The HFM Service Awards for “Best Technology – Innovation Award” and “Best Technology – Overall Award” are two of their most competitive categories, and recognise the hedge fund service provider that has outperformed their peer group over the course of the year. The awards are judged both quantitatively and qualitatively, selecting a final winner that has demonstrated financial progress, growth and genuine innovation for a bespoke solution to both a client and industry problem.
