SunGard's APT has been voted best risk management software at the Hedgeweek USA Awards 2011. The Hedgeweek Awards for excellence among hedge fund managers and service providers honoured the US industry's best performers and their ability to demonstrate consistency and depth of expertise against a backdrop of a more complex, but also potentially more rewarding, investment climate.
SunGard's APT was recognised as "Best Risk Management Software" for its robust factor-based risk methodology and its excellent client service. The award was decided by the votes of Hedgeweek's nearly 20,000 US-based subscribers, who include institutional and high net worth investors as well as managers and other industry professionals at firms including fund administrators, prime brokers, custodians and advisers.
Bill Stone, chief investment strategist at PNC Financial Services, a customer of SunGard's APT, says: "SunGard's APT has a great factor model approach, which captures 'fat tails' and is very flexible around investment decision making. APT helps us make better informed investment decisions and build better portfolios."
Rob Mackay, chief operating officer of SunGard's APT business unit, said, "This award is a testament to our strong US customer base, to whom we owe this win. Customers of SunGard's APT value the flexibility of APT's portfolio construction, optimization and risk reporting capabilities and we would like to thank them for this compelling endorsement."
