Born from Investment
Management experience

Group 122

The investment management industry has faced incremental change and improvements for a long time; all-in-one and best-of-breed have both gone in and out of fashion as investment management firms have built up complex system architectures to serve their businesses. The end result has typically been operating models that work for the time being (more or less), but are costly to run and increasingly slow to evolve.

THE WINNERS OF THE FUTURE WILL BE THE ONES WHO BEST ADAPT TO CHANGE.

Limina was founded by investment management professionals who saw an opportunity to help investment firms not just cope with change, but to embrace it. We believe a modern open platform designed for holistic workflows with sufficient flexibility - as opposed to closed, rigid and fragmented solutions – is the key to help investment managers get back into the driving seat from a technology and operating model perspective. Headquartered in Stockholm and founded in Sweden (well, sort of – read our founding story here!), our Swedish heritage is one that influences our culture deeply, with core values such as openness, collaboration, and humility being at the heart of everything we do. Having been on the client-side ourselves, we know how valuable it is to have a trusted partner who understands you, and that is what we aspire to be for each of our clients.

 

Principles

We started our mission in 2014 with a blank canvas and a set of principles that we believe are critical for how an investment management solution (IMS) should be built and delivered:

OPEN

The choice of IMS should not dictate which other providers you can use. We design our platform to be 3rd party-agnostic and embrace connectivity. In doing so, you can design the optimal operating model for your firm and give front office the workflows they need to deliver alpha.

EXCEPTION-BASED

Being able to trust the data in the system is equally paramount for Front Office decisions as well as governance processes. Your team shouldn’t have to spend valuable time tracking down potential issues; issues should be found and flagged automatically.

SUPPORTED BY PEOPLE THAT UNDERSTAND YOU

Our Product and Client Relations teams work closely with you and act as an extension of your own team. Our solutions are there to empower users, to make every day at work a bit easier.

HOLISTIC

An IMS should be cross-asset and facilitate holistic workflows, to allow for proper oversight and controls including portfolio compliance. With an open IMS at the core, asset-class specific capabilities such as analytics and execution can be integrated into the workflows.
