KCIC, a provider of public / private equity and investment advisory services to the Middle East and Asia, has adopted ClariFI's ModelStation to support its public equities platform. ClariFI is a Standard & Poor's Capital IQ business and provider of software and services focused exclusively on providing investment managers with a complete solution to their research and production workflows.
ModelStation was chosen for its rapid prototyping, ease of use, and seamless optimizer integration which KCIC will employ to streamline its Asian equities investment process. Built using state-of-the-art technology and an open architecture, ModelStation provides KCIC with a flexible and scalable solution that offers native integration of market-leading models and optimizers, enabling users to quickly research, test, and implement successful investment strategies. "By having all of the essential investment management stages on a single platform, ModelStation effectively bridges the gap between research and production and significantly reduces the operational risk inherent in using multiple platforms, and therefore allows our team more time to focus on new investment ideas rather than infrastructural or programming issues," said Dan Xystus, principal at KCIC, in a press release. "We are confident that ModelStation is the best solution to support our ambitious growth plans as we strive to become the premier vehicle in the Middle East for investment into emerging Asia," he said.
"We are thrilled to welcome KCIC as our first Middle East client," said Ruben Falk, manager of European Operations, ClariFI, in a press release. "We look forward to building a long-lasting relationship with KCIC, as we continue to strengthen our footprint in the Middle East and Asian markets and enhance our software and services to address the needs of our growing global client base and the broader investment management community," he said.
