A trio of complementary applications

We built a trio of tools to create a modern, integrated, efficient and collaborative investment solution for the bank. The bank can view and share data and collaborate to make informed investment decisions much more efficiently

Fast turnaround

We managed to deliver Axes and ATB in just 3 months, demonstrating Genesis’s unique proficiency and speed in designing and deploying applications with multiple internal and external integrations, and with complex data sets.

Innovative tools used enterprise-wide

We believe PBI is a first-of-its-kind application in the market. It’s now used by 150 portfolio managers, traders and analysts helping them capitalize on fast-moving opportunities across time-zones and geographies

The Solution

Genesis drew upon its deep expertise in designing applications that address complex product data and workflow challenges for multiple functions. 

And, even with an unforeseen vendor delay of nine months, our team were nimble and pivoted resources to engineer an alternative solution quickly. Without disrupting other integration work (OMS, external data sources compliance), Genesis integrated a mid-stream requirement of the bank’s analytics.
