Värde Partners is a global investment adviser that focuses primarily on credit and value investing strategies across multiple markets. Concentrated on seeking value in less efficient markets and through complex opportunities, Värde is a global presence that has invested over $55 billion since its inception in 1993.
Analysts at Värde Partners were struggling with an on-prem, legacy platform architected for individualized reporting, making it difficult for analysts to support the growing demands of the business. With silos of data scattered across the organization, analysts struggled to gain a complete picture and understanding of their data assets in a timely fashion. In addition, each new dataset that Värde’s analysts wanted to use had to be manually added and cleansed, taking time away from creating actionable investment insights.
In order to increase its competitive advantage as a global player in the financial services industry, Värde had to implement an enterprise data analytics strategy that would scale with the growth of their business and allow for the addition of new technologies and data sources.
Caserta was brought in to assess Värde’s data analytics challenges. Caserta’s recommended solution roadmap included setting up an AWS cloud architecture and ingestion pipelines which deliver key datasets into a cloud-based data warehouse.
Caserta helped Värde go from a legacy and limited reporting platform to a cloud-based data analytics solution that is both extensible and flexible to support the internal and external demands of the business.
Värde’s cost-effective cloud-based unified data warehouse has enabled analysts to further comprehend their data and make better investing decisions that fuel growth.
The architecture of the data warehouse has enabled the integration of new and evolving alternative data sources to address current needs and provides a foundation platform for embracing innovative data sources as needed.
