Reliable access and great uptime
For most firms the investment management solution is mission-critical, and system outages can have severe impact on the business. Limina’s cloud-native system architecture along with the elastic compute capabilities of AWS offers an unparalleled reliability and uptime compared to on-premises and hosted software. There’s even no hardware risk - Limina IMS is browser-based and thus requires no installations or upgrades, meaning you can easily switch to another device and keep working if you can’t access your regular work computer.
Zero IT footprint = no internal IT or key person risk
With Limina’s SaaS solution, you don’t have to worry about hosting, which means there are no dependencies on hardware (servers, computers), network, or key person risk in the IT team on your side. An additional unique benefit of Limina IMS is that the system is fully browser-based. You can simply open the system on another device if your regular work computer isn’t working or is out of reach. Just open a web browser and log in - no updates, 3rd party software, or VPN solutions necessary!
High system availability
Forget about designing failover routines, configuring redundant hardware, and carrying out disaster recovery testing of your investment management technology. With Limina IMS, you get a system that is designed from the ground up to provide unrivaled uptime and built-in automatic failover.
This is possible thanks to the system’s micro-services architecture and cloud orchestration technology that ensures that individual small components are restarted automatically in case of any issues - without affecting the rest of the system.
Elastic scaling & automatic load balancing
Leveraging AWS, Limina IMS is hosted on elastic cloud computation clusters that automatically scale up available resources to ensure high performance regardless of server load. In addition, our exclusive hosting model (multi-instance rather than multi-tenant) gives each client its own private virtual cluster, which further minimises the risk of heavy performance load by another client affecting you.
Limina IMS can be hosted on any AWS data center globally, ensuring low latency regardless of where in the world your HQ is located. Furthermore, all processing is done server-side, which keeps the data traffic and requirements on the local device to a minimum. That’s why you most likely won’t notice a drop in performance if you’re using the system on a touchpad on a 4G hotspot compared to your regular workstation in the office.
Tested disaster recovery
Limina has a tested contingency plan, in the unlikely event of an entire AWS data center or region going down, that ensures minimal service disruption and data loss.
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:
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.
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.
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.
