Working with Imagine, asset managers can assure the investor community that they have the most robust and secure risk management platform.
Founded in 1993 by a team of technical and financial experts from Wall Street, Imagine has been driven by innovation since day one. Today, Imagine provides an integrated real-time data, analytics and solutions platform that drives the entire front-to-back engine for financial firms worldwide.
