February 18, 2015 NEW YORK, NY –RFA, trusted technology partner to investment management clients for more than two decades, today announced that it has been named “Best IT Consultancy Service” at the first annual HFM Technology awards, held February 2nd, 2015 in New York City. In addition to being named for this award, RFA was also shortlisted in two other categories, including best outsourced solution and best infrastructure provider. The HFM Technology awards honor hedge fund technology providers that have outperformed their peers in providing innovative technology products, consultancy services and customer service.
The announcement of this award follows a successful year of product development and global expansion for RFA, and reiterates the company’s dedication to providing clients with excellent service and the most innovative and relevant technology products. In February 2015, RFA announced that the company has released a virtual CISO service for hedge funds and financial services firms in North America and Europe, which will provide clients with a cost effective, on demand chief information security officer. The service will meet the needs of clients that are not large enough to make an investment in a full time CISO to manage security processes.
RFA has also continued to focus on expanding globally, and opened its EMEA headquarters in London in November 2014. RFA now offers a full product suite, including the RFA Cloud, disaster recovery, fully managed IT and design and implementation services to its UK client base through a local technology staff. The London office opening parallels the company’s successful year of expansion in the US during 2014. As of 2015, RFA supports more than 520 clients and $900 billion AUM of client assets.
“This award strongly aligns with RFA’s mission and twenty year track record of providing clients with excellent service and industry leading, custom tailored technology solutions,” said Yohan Kim, Chief Operating Officer of RFA. “Client success and satisfaction is our top priority, and this award validates our commitment to our clients. RFA will continue to focus on providing top rate service and product development as it expands globally.”
