07 February 2017

Openlink takes title for fifth successive year

London and New York – February 7, 2017: Openlink, the global leader in trading, treasury and risk management solutions for the energy, commodities, corporate and financial services industries, has been named as the number one technology vendor for both Commodities Trading Systems and Commodities Pricing and Analytics in the 2016 Risk Technology Rankings.

This is the fifth straight year that Openlink has topped the Risk Magazine rankings, which are assembled via a poll of derivatives and risk management technology users who rate systems based on functionality, usability, performance, return on investment and reliability.

Ken Knowles, Executive Vice President of Enterprise Strategy and Business Development for Openlink, said: “This year’s Risk Technology Rankings highlight the importance of integrated and flexible solutions that drive greater value, efficiency and performance for clients while adapting to their changing technology landscapes. Openlink’s continued position at the top of the rankings underlines the sustained quality of our platform: a single, integrated solution across trade capture, position management, valuation and risk analytics, accounting, collateral and cash management.”

Bernard Delahaye, Senior Vice President at Openlink EMEA, received the awards on behalf of Openlink at the ceremony in London and said: “We would like to thank our clients and partners for voting us top once again in commodities trading and risk solutions. It was a fantastic awards evening, surrounded by specialists in their fields, and we were delighted to host important clients at our table.”

The new recognition builds on continued success for Openlink, which recently advanced its position in the Leader’s Quadrant of Gartner’s 2016 Magic Quadrant for Trading Platforms, was named as the category leader for energy trading risk in the 2017 Chartis RiskTech 100 rankings, and received a 2016 FTF News Technology Innovation Award as the best derivatives operation solution.
