Mizuho Bank has selected Bloomberg’s BQuant Enterprise solution to enhance and streamline its asset management operations based on insights derived from quantitative analytics and data science.
Mizuho Bank, part of Japan’s Mizuho Financial Group, becomes the first bank to adopt BQuant Enterprise’s managed services globally. With the solution, the bank will be able to incorporate a quant approach in all aspects of its investment processes, thereby bolstering the competitiveness of its services.
The solution is a cloud-based end-to-end investment research platform specifically designed for quantitative analysts and data scientists in the financial markets. The platform provides broad access to Bloomberg’s financial datasets along with quant tools and solutions in the cloud that significantly reduces financial services firms’ time to market and infrastructure costs for developing new investment strategies.
The bank has also adopted TOMS, Bloomberg’s fixed-income trade order management system, and its Multi-Asset Risk System, an integrated risk management system.
“We selected these solutions to enhance efficiency of portfolio management and market analysis,” says Naoki Kasai, general manager of fixed income and equity investment at the bank. “At the same time, the market division is changing its organizational structure to strengthen our quantitative analysis capability with digital transformation.”
