Technical Trainer - thinkFolio
Company & Team - "About Us"

thinkFolio is a cross-asset-class order management (OMS) and portfolio modelling system (PMS) that brings transparency to the detailed cash flows comprising each investment. This capability supports a more granular understanding of portfolios and is combined with detailed, native analytics and sophisticated modelling tools.

Customers can implement thinkFolio as a single, integrated investment management platform that supports their entire front office. Due to the flexible, modular design of thinkFolio, they also have the option of deploying the platform for specific use cases and assets classes, including fixed income, cash management and FX or loans.

At the heart of this is excellence in training.
