AQMetrics, a leading global RegTech company, today announced it was named ‘Best compliance product for small and start up firms’ at the 2017 HFM US Technology Awards ceremony on February 13, 2017.

The HFM US Technology Awards recognize and reward IT and software providers serving the hedge fund sector that have demonstrated exceptional customer service and innovative product development over the past 12 months.

AQMetrics uses smart technology to build out effective, efficient and scalable risk and compliance tools combined with the expertise of its industry-leading team of professionals. This technology is built with both small and large firms in mind, and in the last 18 months, over 40 per cent of the firm’s new customers have been small and startup hedge funds. The firm has also continued its commitment to strategic global growth with the recent expansion its sales team and partners throughout the Americas.

“It is an honor to be named the leading compliance product this year by the HFM US Technology Awards,” said Geraldine Gibson, CEO, AQMetrics. “Between this accolade and our recognition in the Europe HFM Awards, these achievements are a direct reinforcement that our innovative risk and compliance technology is playing a significant role in shaping the way customers respond to regulatory demands around the globe.”

This win follows AQMetrics’ announcement of last month, introducing enhancements to its platform specifically geared towards helping clients prepare for the January 2018 MiFID II regulatory deadline.
