Optimize Performance, Limit Exposures & Maintain Compliance

Successful buy side firms understand that data is a valuable asset, and that using it properly constitutes a significant competitive advantage. Portfolio managers, research analysts, CIOs, sales executives, traders, investor relations people, and compliance officers must be able to derive useful, actionable insight from their data in order to improve fund profitability and avoid breaches. They must be able to develop a detailed understanding of market conditions and trends as well as how their own funds are performing against benchmarks and peers.

Buy side firms with consistently good performance face a particularly difficult challenge: Growing their business in terms of Assets Under Management (AUM). The right analytics tools help salespeople identify high priority investors and leads by better leveraging their CRM and other databases.

Business users, however, are often limited in what they can accomplish by the proprietary analytics solutions that their IT teams have provided. Making changes to such systems generally implies embarking on time consuming and expensive development processes; by the time a project is completed, the factors driving the need for it have often changed in fundamental ways.

They can make full use of all their data resources, including real-time streaming feeds and massive databases of historical data – and they can do it all without writing any code.

Panopticon enables buy side firms to give their business users accessible, stable, and cost-efficient analytics technology suitable for all asset classes.
