Optiva Securities selects JHC Neon to support new services  


Optiva Securities is implementing JHC System’s JHC Neon (Neon) in a drive to increase control and transparency. The deal follows JHC’s recently announced partnership which makes Neon available for clients of Jarvis Investment Management (Jarvis). 

With its global HQ in Mayfair London, specialist stockbroker Optiva Securities is expanding its business to offer discretionary services. Neon will be integral to this aim, giving managers a 360- degree view of all their clients. The sophisticated monitoring and risk functionality will provide oversight to ensure that they are always within the mandates agreed by clients  

Christian Dennis, CEO at Optiva Securities, says: “As we expand our remit it’s crucial to ensure that our monitoring capability is fit to support our ambitions. Neon will allow us to automate processes through a secure, accessible and highly intuitive system. The digital dashboards offer us overall transparency across our portfolios as well as details on individual holdings.”  

Optiva Securities is the first client to be signed off the back of JHC’s partnership with Jarvis. A long standing JHC Figaro (Figaro) client, Jarvis expanded its relationship with JHC in May this year by offering digital portfolio monitoring tool Neon to clients.  

Nick Crabb, Business Client Services Director at Jarvis, says: “There’s a gap in the market for a digital dashboard, which shows managers the state of affairs from front- to back-office. Neon fills this gap which is why we were so keen to extend our partnership with JHC. Neon’s instant portfolio monitoring, risk analysis, and ongoing compliance checking offers huge benefits, not only from a regulatory perspective but for client engagement too.”  

John Blackman (pictured) CEO at JHC, says: “We’re really pleased to sign our first name following our newly announced partnership with Jarvis. Neon is the perfect solution for a firm like Optiva Securities, who will now be able to focus on scaling their business while maintaining incredible oversight and control, from the big picture to the smallest detail.”
