We understand Wasil will be looking towards expanding his own interests in this upcoming year, but we couldn't be happier with his time spent working with us here at Indigo Funding and we wish certainly wish him well

Indigo Funding, an investment and asset management firm which was founded in 2008, had its strongest year to date in 2014. As an article on the firm’s website noted, Indigo Funding saw its clients' investments/assets (corporations in the public and private sector, and high-net-worth individuals) with significant YTD increases of assets under management, which total upwards of $255 million.

By Q4 of 2014 Indigo Funding oversaw a 37.3 percent YTD increase of all AUM. The firm had set reasonable expectations for its clients in Q4 of 2013 for the following year, but confidently delivered at a higher than expected rate of increase in 2014.

However, the cause of the improvement came from the unlikeliest of sources. There were no leadership changes at the top of the firm's hierarchy, there was no significant increase in clientele, but rather the firm's improvement was attributed to the exceptional technology strategy, implementation, and management that the firm had never had in its previous half decade of existence.

Early in 2014 as Indigo Funding was positioning itself to better run a productive and dedicated firm, they concluded from the 2013 year-end analysis their technology budget was being improperly utilized. The decisions makers decided to bring aboard Wasil Ahmed, a young mid-20s tech-savvy advisor from Houston, Texas, who had been referred to by one of Indigo Funding's clients. The firm was told that Wasil Ahmed's Houston area experience involved consulting businesses about their technology and digital strategies going back to his days in high school, and they were intrigued by bringing aboard a young, intuitive mind to jumpstart their lackluster tech strategy.

"Indigo Funding has a great leadership team so I knew immediately they were very eager to come up with the best internal-technology strategy to improve client management," Wasil says when asked about his initial thoughts after being brought on as the firm's technology advisor.

"Through discussions with the firm's leadership team we were able to solidify a robust strategy for implementation right off the bat."

The execs at the firm had suspected that improvements in their IT systems would benefit the firm but through Wasil Ahmed advisor and solution-based approach to the firm's client management they were pleasantly surprised of the impact his strategy and implementations presented. "Wasil was able to intricately implement CMMS (computerized maintenance management system) software packages that helped our firm exponentially improve client management internally in direct benefit of our clients, and how we managed their investments and assets," a firm spokesperson shares.

"We understand Wasil will be looking towards expanding his own interests in this upcoming year, but we couldn't be happier with his time spent working with us here at Indigo Funding and we wish certainly wish him well."

Thanks to news about people like Wasil Ahmed Indigo Funding 2015 is very excited about continuing to build on their success from last year that seemed to have come from the unlikeliest of sources. The firm will continue to approach their clients' investments and assets as they always have: through assessments of the current AUM, determining appropriate risk, and addressing their client's long-term goals.

"With a substantially strong year in 2014, expected portfolio expansion will depend solely on future growth, and that's a message we have strongly emphasized to our clients," one of the firm's spokespersons said.
