Ampega Asset Management amps it up with Murex
Cologne-based Talanx, Ampega Asset Management, is using Murex’s flexible and open MX.3 platform for portfolio, order and risk management.
The company has implemented MX.3 for a wide range of asset classes including fixed income, equity, funds, FX and derivatives for all business lines.
The asset manager has more than €130 billion under management, it says.
Dr. Immo Querner, CFO of Talanx AG and chairman of Ampega Asset Management’s supervisory board, says: “We were looking for a platform to integrate trading and risk functions in order to meet the challenges of growing complexity and to allow for further process optimisation in these areas.”
In a competitive and evolving market, Ampega wanted a single technology platform that closed the gap between front office and risk, enabling the quick introduction of more complex investment products.
The firm says it also required a flexible solution that would increase the transparency of risk calculations and ensure it could meet regulatory obligations.
