5 aspects to determine whether the Limina Investment Portfolio Management Software is right for your firm
1. Enterprise investment portfolio management software-as-a-service (SaaS)

In other words, you would like the solution to fit into your existing ecosystem of solutions and service providers without imposing unnecessary change.

2. Holistic front-to-middle office solution
You're looking for a front-to-mid office solution covering Investment Book of Record and data quality controls within the same solution. Furthermore, you want a setup where compliance, IBOR, Portfolio Management System and Order Management System are all in the same solution.
You would like workflows for the front and middle office to be designed end to end to be as efficient and robust as possible.
3. Limina IMS is an open platform
You have an ecosystem of service providers and systems, such as execution systems, custodians, excel, terminals and more. You want to retain the autonomy to choose these systems, data sources and service providers.
Then you want the Investment Management Platform to connect as seamlessly as possible to them all, from day one. And you want it to be as smooth as possible as your integration needs develop over time.
4. Empowering portfolio managers and operations with the best tools
This probably goes without saying, but you prioritise attracting and retaining the best talent in the front and middle office. You want to EMPOWER your team with the best tools for their work such as exception-based workflows, great analytics and a modern user experience in the browser.
You also want to ensure they're looking at accurate data and complete portfolios at all times. This is enabled by Limina not "just" being an Order Management System, but underpinned by a live extract Investment Book of Record.
5. Prioritising partner relationships
Finally, you want a partner relationship with your vendor, to ensure that your needs within the front-to-middle office and data management are being listened to by the (partner) vendor and supported over time. You want to be supported by people with experience from the industry who understand your unique business.
