New interface between Essentia and Eze Investment Suite

For users of Eze Software’s Investment Suite, managing cognitive bias just got easier

Eze Investment Suite, the flexible front-to-back office solution for investment professionals, now integrates seamlessly with behavioral technology leader, Essentia Analytics.


London, May 30th 2018
– Essentia Analytics, the ground-breaking provider of behavioral analytics and nudges to professional investors, today announced a new interface with Eze Software’s award-winning technology.

Essentia Insight allows professional investors to analyse their trade and portfolio activity for behavioral biases that may be damaging investment performance. Through rich reporting and tailored nudges, the platform builds a data-driven feedback loop that can lead to measurably better investment performance.

Eze software for investment managers

Users of Eze’s Order Management (Eze OMS) and Portfolio Management & Accounting System (formerly Tradar) can now load their data into the Essentia’s behavioral analytics platform, Essentia Insight, via a standardized interface.

As a result, Eze Software’s clients will be able to get up and running with Essentia, and get to grips with their decision-making strengths and weaknesses, in record time and with minimal effort required from their own data teams.

Clare Flynn Levy, Founder & CEO of Essentia Analytics, said: “Demand for behavioral analytics has been increasing as active managers seek to add AI to their investment processes. Essentia Analytics leverages the data that portfolio managers are already capturing in Eze Investment Suite to help managers focus their time on doing more of what they’re good at, and less of what they’re not.”
