Invisage (previously VTFinTech) is shortlisted for the HFM European Hedge Fund Technology Award 2019
Invisage (previously VTFinTech) has been shortlisted by the HFM European Hedge Fund Technology Award 2019 for the Best Research Management Solution. This is another encouragement from the industry and our peers that we are moving in the right direction in our pursuit to help produce alpha.
We are in good company with other shortlisted firms – RSRCHXchange, Red Deer, BMLL Technologies and SS&C Advent. Though we are set in a competition here, we see them as our partners and would look forward to collaborate and help our clients move from research complexity to investment clarity.
We look forward to the final results (to be declared on 18 Sep).
The timing for this shortlist could not have been better, as we just qualified as the top 25 by F10 incubator and accelerator, Switzerland last week.
Earlier this year we were shortlisted in 2 categories by HFM European Hedge Fund Services Awards 2019 –
- Best Mifid II solution – research management
- Best cloud technology provider – for small and start-up firms
It has been a rewarding journey for us so far. We are proud to have on-boarded several established names in the research community across Europe onto Invisage platform and increase our coverage substantially across markets and sectors. This recognition is a great milestone for our performance-based research evaluation.
