OpenGamma takes home best derivatives solution at HFM Tech Awards 2018

We’ve scooped the award for best derivatives solution at HFM technology awards 2018!

We exist to help hedge funds increase capital efficiency and operate in the post-crisis regulatory environment, and are chuffed that our margin optimisation and ‘total cost’ solutions have been recognised by HFM Week as providing levels of service and innovation head and shoulders above all other nominees.

Peter Rippon, our CEO, said: “It is an honour to be recognised as the leading derivatives solution provider, and we are proud that our insights into trading costs are helping alleviate the growing regulatory and macroeconomic strains faced by hedge funds. As regulatory cost pressures continue to mount, fund managers are beginning to make margin a top priority. This award represents our growing dominance in this space as our product provides the key solution to growing issues for hedge fund managers.”

We’ve also launched a brand new buy-side 7-day free trial of the platform. This will allow hedge funds who have not yet taken action against rising margin costs to try out the award-winning services for free. Sign up for your free trial here.

Strata Wins Big at JavaOne 2016

At the JavaOne 2016 conference in San Francisco, Strata, the open source market risk library from OpenGamma, won the 2016 Duke’s Choice Award. This recognises the quality of the software, the open source nature and how it makes best use of Java SE 8. I attended JavaOne to collect the award on a cool and breezy evening in Duke’s Cafe:

Award presented by Georges Saab, Vice President, Software Development, Java Platform Group at Oracle (Centre) and Sharat Chander, Director, Java Product Management & Developer Relations (Left)

It was great to be back at JavaOne after a three year gap, with the award as a real bonus. I also gave a talk on code generating mutable and immutable beans, with slides available. There was lots of talk about Java 9, modularity and future changes to the language for local variable type inference and data classes (potentially removing the need for code generators).

Now I’m back in the UK, it is time to finish up the loose ends and release v1.1 of Strata, with lots of enhancements. That way we can keep the award-winning momentum going for everyone who needs a transparent, high quality, easy-to-use library for valuation and market risk.
