BEST NEWCOMER
Winner – Diligence Vault

This cloud-based, two-sided digital diligence platform is designed to address data and workflow issues between asset owners, consultants and asset managers. Diligence Vault’s platform enables both sides to exchange information quickly, ensures collaboration between internal groups and keeps an audit trail of all interactions. Furthermore, the product allows for virtual meetings, thereby cutting the need for travel. While the firm has been operating since 2014 in the US, it has only entered the European market this year, having opened its London office in April 2020. In this short time, it has built an impressive list of clients and garnered some glowing testimonials.

BEST USE OF TECHNOLOGY
Winner
– Axyon AI

This Italian-based fintech has made excellent use of AI technology to deliver solutions specifically designed for asset managers. Its flagship product, Axyon IRIS, uses a proprietary AI platform and deep learning technology to deliver forecasts on asset performance and risk management.

The judges recognised its work with Italian firm Cassa di Compensazione & Garanzia (CC&G) to develop a tool to detect anomalies in the option prices traded in the Italian stock market. It also provides extensive support, having deployed the IRIS platform on the CC&G infrastructure to prevent any possibility of data leakage; and to process and analyse CC&G’s proprietary data and provide a detailed description of the platform’s performance. This can be used to ensure the continuous retraining of the AI-based models.
