“Limina has been built from the ground up as both a complete investment book of record and a real-time order management solution. In one. Marrying the two means that decisions can now be based off accurate real-time and complete data.”

Customer preferences are forcing a profound shift for asset managers. Demands are increasing, such as wanting sustainability reporting and constraints for some portfolios.

Meanwhile, the willingness to pay is decreasing.

This is causing a squeeze for asset managers, seeing their fees fall and demands rise.

In this new world, chasing every basis point is becoming increasingly important.

Limina was founded around the mission to help asset managers do just that.

Year after year, month after month, portfolio managers are using their experience and knowledge to generate returns for investors. However, they are at a disadvantage compared to their benchmarks.

Inaccurate and untimely data is causing decisions to suffer and buffers to be put in place. This means that the first bit of alpha generated goes to catching up with the benchmark.

Limina is here because we want to help asset managers start at par with their benchmark and equalize the playing field.

Finding a way to address these challenges will ultimately help asset managers increase their performance, and provide better returns to their investors.

Traditionally, systems have been graded either for real-time support or to capture complete data. This means that when decisions are being made intraday in real-time systems, they don’t have complete data.

Limina has been built from the ground up as both a complete investment book of record and a real-time order management solution. In one.

Marrying the two means that decisions can now be based off accurate real-time and complete data.

So how do we actually make this a reality?

Taking a big bang approach, replacing a critical decision support system is probably not the best approach forward.

Instead, we have designed the system to be able to take a piecewise approach until the entire implementation is complete, which ultimately, significantly lowers operational risk.
