I am looking for overview references on software companies that develop applications in the following domains:

  • asset and portfolio management
  • risk management
  • derivatives pricing
  • trading
  • quant modelling

I am also interested in different approaches, like:

  • buy and sell side products
  • commercial and open source products
  • big established players and agile innovative new players

The references should give an idea about what the products are capable of and their position in the industry.

I am interested in references that give a balanced overview (advertising links to individual companies will not be tolerated here! If the answers as such give a balanced overview themselves this is of course fine).

    $\begingroup$ Sorry but I find this an incredibly broad question. I am sure at least 500-1000 companies would fall under this umbrella. Its almost as if you ask for companies that develop C# code. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It's already hard enough finding a comprehensive sw list, let alone a comparison; for a partial list check bobsguide's directory. For comparisons Lupus offers something, although not for free. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I don't want to have a list with 1.000 companies but some guidance and overview. There must be some research and analysts out there who cover these topics. $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


So, I dont even know of comprehensive SW lists; one of the best ones probably being bobsguide directory (subdivided in specific topics). Another one is at Marketwiki. Lepus also offers a through comparison of software in some of the mentioned areas, and keeps lists with features. For HFT there's HFTReview's directory.
