Charles River is a well-established presence in the buy-side technology market and continues to embrace ongoing product development. The ability to supply a solid list of testimonials for 2008 regarding the latest version of its Charles River Investment Management System (IMS), from the likes of Schroders, BlueBay and Thames River caught the eye of judges Portware
Judges recognised the growth of Portware over the past year, particularly the successful expansion of the company into the European market. Founded in 2000, Portware is a developer of broker-neutral, multi-asset automated trading systems and has been deployed at more than 130 firms worldwide. Currently five of the top 20 and seven of the top 30 global asset management firms are clients and its entry shows that it intends to continue its concentration on European fund managers.
