HedgeServ, a fund administrator for the alternative investment industry, has upgraded its client base to the latest version of SunGard's Front Arena.
A multi-asset solution providing trade capture, real-time P&L and desk-level risk, Front Arena helps hedge funds, traditional asset managers and other alternative investment managers identify risk and exposure.
With offices in New York, Dublin and the Cayman Islands, HedgeServ has been extending Front Arena’s portfolio management and risk capabilities to its client base since early 2009.
With the latest upgrade to Front Arena, HedgeServ and its clients will have access to enhanced functionality for pricing commodities and FX options and have the ability to better manage yield curves and make real-time price adjustments.
Front Arena now offers parallel processing, which will help HedgeServ achieve increased throughput and higher productivity. Improvements in Front Arena’s architecture will give HedgeServ the ability to enhance its suite of applications with Front Arena.
Jim Kelly, HedgeServ’s chairman, says: “We continually strive to provide our clients with innovative technology solutions that are coupled with efficient, effective service. This newest release of Front Arena will help provide the increased functionality we need to continue to enhance our capability to support the alternative investment industry.”
Emanuel Mond (pictured), president of SunGard’s alternative investments business, adds: “HedgeServ’s implementation and distribution of the new version of Front Arena to its clients is a testament to the flexibility of the system to adapt to a variety of fund structures and business requirements. It is also proof of the strength and efficiency of Front Arena to form the core of a large-scale, shared technology platform delivered on an application service provider basis.”
