Mereor selects Imagine Software for risk and portfolio management

Paris-based Mereor Investment Management and Advisory has chosen Imagine Software’s internet-based Derivatives.com service.

The new investment management firm will deploy Imagine Software as a trade capture, portfolio and risk management platform.

With a focus on credit and merger arbitrage strategies, Mereor needed a risk and portfolio management system that would provide flexible stress testing capabilities, a high degree of user-defined customization capabilities, and reporting transparency.

Mereor founding partner Georges Gedeon says: “In today’s highly volatile climate, risk management is top of mind for everyone, and investors are demanding that funds have institutional-grade risk management tools in place from the start. While we did survey numerous offerings in our search for a system, only Imagine could provide the level of sophistication, flexibility and transparency we required. In addition, Imagine’s team represents valuable expertise in supporting multi-strategy investment processing, including handling credit and merger arbitrage strategies. We feel extremely confident as we head toward launch that we have made the right decision on behalf of our investors.”

“We are delighted that a start-up fund, particularly one with the management pedigree of Mereor, has selected Imagine to support its business needs,” says Yvonne Dahl, director of sales and marketing at Imagine. “Mereor made the decision to launch a fund focused specifically on their unique core competencies in credit and merger arbitrage, concentrating in a market segment ripe for growth in the new investment landscape. We are excited to help them capitalize on this opportunity and help them grow.”

Imagine Software is a provider of real-time investment management solutions worldwide. Its flagship product, the Imagine Trading System, is a cross-asset trading, portfolio, and risk management solution available as an enterprise application or as an on-demand, ASP-based platform at Derivatives.com.
