AcadiaSoft rebrands to Acadia to reflect industry-standard platform

Rick Steves

Having transformed into an industry-standard platform, Acadia is now focused on helping clients achieve regulatory compliance, optimize their collateral and liquidity, and manage their capital more efficiently.

Big Data represents the future of Risk Management

AcadiaSoft has decided to rebrand to Acadia to reflect its progression from a pure software company to an industry-standard platform over the past decade.

The company, which has recently enhanced its risk management capabilities in February with the acquisition of Dublin-based Quaternion, enables a network of banks and other derivatives firms to improve efficiency and mitigate costs.

The derivatives industry is at a massive inflection point with the integration of risk management and more insightful data. Acadia aims to help the industry to evolve the risk function from measurement to integrated management.

Streamlining risk measurement, risk analysis, and risk mitigation is the answer. Acadia’s ability to standardize collateral management addresses clients’ overall risk strategy holistically and on a real-time basis.

Having transformed into an industry-standard platform, Acadia is now focused on helping clients achieve regulatory compliance, optimize their collateral and liquidity, and manage their capital more efficiently.

Chris Walsh, Chief Executive Officer at Acadia, said: “Over the past decade, it’s been a privilege to watch Acadia evolve from our beginnings as a software company to what we are today: a fully-integrated risk management provider for firms engaged in derivatives trading.

“We are still in the early stages of this seismic shift towards the future of risk management, but demand for an integrated, automated and centralized risk management solution is growing by the day. As we lead the industry towards this integrated risk management, we’re proud to begin our next chapter as Acadia.”

Laura Craft, Marketing Director at Acadia, added: “The brand refresh comes at a pivotal moment for the company, following the recent expansion of our risk management suite of services. The brand name Acadia not only reflects the industry’s shorthand for our firm, but it also represents the future, as we continue expanding our highly-advanced risk platform.”

In late 2020, CME Group’s TriOptima extended its collaboration with AcadiaSoft to automate monthly collateral interest payments, making trade processing more efficient for over-the-counter (OTC) market participants.
