Dassault Systèmes has named the winner of its FinTech startup programme as software and analytics firm Prophis.
The London-based startup, formerly known as Pontchartrain Advisors, impressed the judges with its solution to help businesses in the investment management industry extract more value and insights from their ‘medium data’.
Prophis’ Proteus platform was pitched as using a unique approach of flexible analytics and bespoke visualisations to enable FIs to solve their data challenges around risk, communication and identifying data relationships.
The 3D FinTech Challenge 2014, run by software firm Dassault Systèmes, ran over seven weeks in London and featured six finalists, who were mentored by financial sector experts and given commercial advice on their products. Prophis will now be taken by Dassault Systèmes to New York to connect with the US colleagues of the challenge’s mentors.
Kevin Pleiter, vice president of financial and business services industry, Dassault Systèmes, said: “We are proud to have collaborated with leading financial services industry experts and senior executives, together with the FinTech community, in running this year’s 3D FinTech Challenge.
“We were especially impressed by the high calibre of the startups selected for the final and are delighted that Prophis has won this year’s accelerator challenge. We are confident they will be a driving force in revolutionising the investment management industry.”
