Calypso Technology and AxiomSL combine under new Adenza name

Following the merger of Calypso Technology and AxiomSL in July, the combined company has now announced it will operate under the new name of Adenza.

The new name is a combination of the words “add” and “cadenza”; “add” embodies the mathematical and analytical skills strongly associated with both Calypso and AxiomSL, while “cadenza” signifies the passion to innovate, build market-leading products and consistently deliver value to customers.

Adenza is unique in the industry, offering modern, fully integrated solutions which can be delivered on-premise or on-cloud. The breadth of Adenza’s offering allows customers across the banking, capital markets, treasury, enterprise risk, regulatory reporting and compliance verticals to streamline end-to-end workflows and achieve greater operational efficiencies.

Adenza is dual headquartered in London and New York City, with nearly 2,000 employees, more than 60,000 users, and a customer base spanning the world’s largest financial institutions.

Didier Bouillard, Chief Executive Officer at Adenza, says: “The Adenza name honours, celebrates and elevates the heritage of both Calypso and AxiomSL. The fusion of deep technical knowledge with the element of human passion, understanding and energy is what makes Adenza special. We are excited to embark on our next phase of growth as Adenza and deliver even greater value to our customers. Adenza is uniquely positioned to streamline customer value chains and equip them to rapidly adapt to changing regulations.”

Richard Bentley, Chief Product and Engineering Officer at Adenza, says:“Both Calypso and AxiomSL have prioritized product investment over multiple decades. We recognize that this investment is driving more and more customers to select both platforms to support key workflows and streamline their IT infrastructure. We will continue to differentiate Adenza by the level of investment we make in R&D.”

Vlad Etkin, Chief Technology Officer at Adenza, says: “Mission-critical platforms must continually evolve to take advantage of technology developments and to deliver new capabilities at optimal costs. Innovation and modernisation has been at the top of the agenda for both Calypso and AxiomSL, and we will continue to innovate and leverage cutting-edge technologies to ensure Adenza’s customers have access to the latest developments in a timely fashion.”
