The annual HFM US Technology Awards recognize and reward IT and software providers serving the hedge fund sector that have demonstrated exceptional customer service and innovation over the past twelve months. Winners were determined by an independent judging panel of CTOs and other leading US hedge fund executives.
LayerOne Financial publicly launched the PortfolioOne platform in 2018 after initially offering the solution privately. PortfolioOne is the company's leading-edge, cloud-hosted, modular, end-to-end investment management solution designed to fully support financial institutions' Order Management, Portfolio and Risk Management, Operations, Treasury, Compliance, Accounting, Data Warehousing, Reporting and Workflow functions. The platform is fully integrable, highly customizable and employs both advanced big data and modern visualization principles to seamlessly balance analytics and operations.
