Hurricane Capital Advisors chooses SS&C's front-to-back solution
Hurricane Capital Advisors (Hurricane Capital), a global alternative investment management platform, has launched its operations with SS&C Technologies' front-to-back office solution.
SS&C will provide fund administration, customised middle-office solutions, FIX connectivity, hosting and state-of-the-art order and execution management systems.
"We wanted to launch our operations with a technology partner to support the complex demands of a global multi-manager strategy on a single adaptable platform," says Chris Napoli, COO. "SS&C’s best-in-class fund administration, seamlessly integrated with advanced execution and order management systems, creates a powerful infrastructure to lean on.”
Hurricane Capital’s segregated account platform allows experienced managers to invest in various sectors, asset classes, and geographies at an elite institutional level. The platform also allows managers the superior asset control of a segregated portfolio, with risk parameters unique to their strategies. “We wanted to create an environment that would allow premier managers to access global markets with the best systems, technology, and support available, and our partnership with SS&C has allowed us to do just that,” Napoli explains.
“To support a growth strategy, funds need the infrastructure and expertise to launch, run and scale their operations efficiently,” says Bill Stone, Chairman and CEO of SS&C Technologies. “SS&C is dedicated to supporting fund launches with flexible front-to-back technology and services. Our customers can focus on growing their business while we take care of the rest.”
Hurricane Capital expects to carry ten portfolio managers on the platform by July. The Hurricane Capital team is led by Adam Wolfberg, Ian Goodman, and Chris Napoli, who, collectively, bring more than 50 years of investment platform experience to the initiative. Wolfberg and Goodman both began their careers as portfolio managers at SAC Capital, and both went on to create successful hedge fund enterprises. Napoli brings experience in specialty international financing and dealing expertise throughout emerging and developed Asia, Pan Europe, as well as global and domestic synthetics. Ken Grant, former CRO at SAC Capital, Tudor, and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, will closely advise Hurricane Capital and be responsible for platform risk management. Industry veteran Matt DeSalvo joins Hurricane Capital from his role as head of US Equities at Mizuho Securities, after 30 years as Managing Director between Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse, to serve as executive director and head of portfolio services.
