20 Best Small Companies to Watch 2021

Transform data and analytics, consolidating workflow from Sell Side to Buy Side onto one cloud-based collaboration platform seamlessly: T-REX


Information Technology has become one of the most important resources to operate and manage organizations in the 21st century. It touches every facet of a modern enterprise, from customer service to operations, to social media, and to security. Over time, technology creates new jobs like mobile application developers, social media and business intelligence analysts, information security specialists, and data architects. Such jobs didn’t exist twenty, or even ten, years ago. Information technologies that integrate business functions across the enterprise, known as Enterprise Systems, have become the backbone of modern organizations. In order to operate efficiently, companies are seeking ways to improve their business processes. Increasingly, companies are looking toward technology, such as enterprise systems, for solutions that improve their workflows and customer service process. Enterprise systems are large-scale software packages that are able to track and control all of the complex operations of a business. These systems are used as a central command hub to help automate the business and make reporting and decision making easier. T-REX is a leading enterprise solutions provider across structured credit markets, energy and infrastructure project finance, loan, and asset warehousing. Built to empower responsible finance, T-REX fills a critical technology gap for complex assets by digitizing and standardizing data, automating workflow, and enhancing efficiency across the entire investment lifecycle of underserved alternative asset classes. Amidst the 2008 financial crisis, Benjamin Cohen saw tremendous opportunity in building financial infrastructure for traditionally riskier markets.

T-Rex Serves The Entire Ecosystem

Alternative investment professionals had historically lacked the tools necessary to adequately assess risks in complex markets, hampering large-scale investments in high-value sectors. Furthermore, there was no easy, secure way to communicate and collaborate on a deal with colleagues and counterparties. Finally, the manual, spreadsheet-based workflow significantly impacted time-to-market. T-REX supplants manually-generated financial models with a sophisticated SaaS platform built for complex markets. By automating workflow, standardizing inputs and formulas, and improving communication across counterparties, users collaborate on deals more effectively – with greater precision and security. Due to the opaque, fragmented nature of complex asset class workflow, liquidity is limited, and money is often left on the table. T-REX’s transparent, ready-to-use data and flexible analytical tools empower users across the investment lifecycle to improve performance – from lowering capital costs to handling greater volume to entering new markets with confidence. T-REX bridges the workflow gap between the Sell Side and the Buy Side. With a standardized user interface and transparent data definitions, calculations, and analytics, T-REX takes the guesswork out of the current workflow while dramatically improving efficiency and collaboration across every stage of the investment lifecycle. Today, T-REX accelerates the growth of complex markets by equipping financial professionals with innovative data, analytics, reporting, and collaboration tools. Utilized in transactions across major investment banks, rating agencies, accounting firms, institutional investors, and issuers, T-REX improves transparency and efficiency at every stage of the investment lifecycle and has been used to structure over $7 billion in total assets since 2016.
