Octopus has been created by Pfäffikon, Switzerland based Finanzinformatik IT GmbH. The company was founded in 2003 and launched Octopus in 2008. Octopus users appreciate the “fast implementation” and “maximum automation” capabilities that allows users to automate almost every task from imports out of external sources to sending reports. A Zurich based Asset Manager said that Octopus “automized more than half of our manual work. Flawless support, all interfaces, which weren’t there yet, were prepared in a breeze. We didn’t have to worry about anything.”
Nathalie Ulken, Project Manager at Octopus, said: “We have been working on this product since 2008 and have continuously built and expanded its capabilities. Getting this recognition as Editor's Pick is really wonderful. To have industry data driven confirmation of our product is something we have been striving to achieve."
Ulken added: “Our claim at Octopus is to be the only all-in-one, fully compliant Portfolio- and Fund Management Web application that leading investment managers globally use to cover their entire workflow - without breaking the bank. We show that it's possible to deliver a superior product at the most competitive price. Given the reality where almost everything, particularly people and expenses for compliance, are only going up, it is an important and fundamental principle for our firm to be aligned with our clients and to give the best possible products and services to help them stay competitive.”
Fund managers can “test drive” Octopus for free for four weeks
Ulken also announced that interested fund managers can get free access to Octopus and use its entire functionality by setting up one fund and running it for four weeks on the system, an offer valued at $2000, without any obligations:
- Setup of one fund with current portfolio, including import of all securities / positions / transactions
