Member of Executive Management
"We have been using AlternativeSoft since late 2013. Compared with our prior, well known analytics software vendor, the program was much more intuitive, easier to use and provided greater breadth of analytics and monitoring options. In addition, the software is equipped with tools to help with scoring/ranking and monitoring, which other analytics solutions often lack. It’s as wide as it is deep in its ability to compute fund and portfolio level analytics, limited only by one’s own ability to incorporate it’s many tools. Most importantly, and despite the long distance between California and London, we’ve had nothing but exceptional service and attention to our every request, no matter the time of day. I’ve been equally impressed by senior management’s visits to our office to better understanding our needs and issues with use of their software in an effort to improve and develop new tools, such as the recently launched 13F monitor, exposure monitor and dynamic portfolio construction modules. Alternativesoft has become an indispensable tool for our organization."
