Hedge fund and asset management technology provider HedgeGuard has launched its UK business as it begins the rollout of a new cloud technology platform and international expansion.
HedgeGuard’s software is designed to reduce costs across the asset management industry and provide cloud-based front-to-back office ‘intelligence’ for all clients on any device.
Already active in the French market, HedgeGuard’s software is designed to be user-friendly. It has adapted to increased volatility and regulation on behalf of its existing clients, with the reporting, risk and compliance modules that managers increasingly need.
Designed by hedge fund managers for hedge fund managers, HedgeGuard’s technology has a simple fee structure based on number of users and offers free implementation for start-ups. It is intended to be cost-effective for hedge funds, asset managers and family offices, with the advantage of easy scaling up or down according to a client’s immediate needs.
Imad Wardé, founder and managing director of HedgeGuard, says: “2014 is predicted to be a great year for the investment industry. We are already seeing strong interest here in our revolutionary software and cloud-based technology which will allow fund managers to do their trading from the beach – on their mobile phones – by the summer.
“We believe we are loosening the Goliaths' grip on the software industry by delivering UK hedge funds and asset managers with a cost-effective solution, topped off with outstanding customer service.”
