Our focus on innovation continues to reap dividends. This past year our team has garnered three hedge fund industry awards with the latest rolling in just last week. We kicked off the year with recognition in March for our innovative AI-driven solution from the Hedgeweek European Awards 2021 and followed that by winning “Best Research Management Solution” in the HFM European Technology Awards 2021 in July. Our latest accolade was a big one as we beat out competitors to be recognized as the Best AI Technology Provider by the 2021 Hedgeweek Americas Awards.
Why do we keep winning? We intimately understand the pressures and challenges facing investment analysts and fund managers. Afterall, the Sentieo platform was initially developed out of necessity. Our founders were investment analysts themselves and were desperately seeking a better way to conduct research. They needed a new streamlined process with automation and technology tools that weren’t 30 years old (looking at you Excel!). They couldn’t find what they needed so they built it instead.
Over the last 18 months, things in our industry have shifted rapidly. Time and time again we’ve heard from frustrated customers and prospects that the legacy solutions in place to conduct and analyze investment research simply cannot meet the needs of today’s work environment or workflow. Our primary business goal is to alleviate this burden by providing a cloud-based platform – full of AI-driven innovations – to do the job.
Unlike other solutions, our financial research platform empowers analysts to find information quickly across millions of documents and datasets (even unstructured data), share their findings, collaborate, and use a unified hub to streamline even the most data-intensive work. Featuring natural language processing and innovative machine learning capabilities that are seamlessly integrated into the full research workflow, we can provide fund managers with multiple ways to bring their own content into the platform and inform investment insights.
The result is an AI-driven financial research platform that enables hedge funds and other investment-focused customers to finally modernize the investment research process while making it more efficient, more powerful, and more of a competitive differentiator.
