Linedata Transforms Global Hedge Platform to Deliver Integrated Portfolio and Risk Management

Linedata has transformed its Global Hedge platform to deliver a new release that provides a single log-on to integrated portfolio and risk management, and real-time access to data and reporting.

Linedata initially brought together and rebranded its Beauchamp hedge fund management tools, including analytics and data from Riskdata, in Linedata Global Hedge at the end of 2012. The platform has since been developed towards the latest release that moves the product forward considerably, adding application integration, a single data repository and real-time data access. The platform framework uses dot-net technology to deliver the single long-on and provide the ability to plug functionality modules into the system. The release will be available in the market from October 2013.

Ed Gouldstone, head of hedge fund product management at Linedata, explains: “This is the first time we have offered a single long-on to all the functionality a hedge fund needs. In the front-office, where investment decision are made, a user can see not just a snap shot of positions, but how positions and strategy have developed over time. In the middle office, the platform provides the power to access the increasing amount of data required by regulators and launch reports.”

Focussing on risk, he says: “For risk monitoring and management there is no limit on the data users can access. The platform includes customisable dashboards that allow risk managers to access data, such as positions data, in real time and run risk reports. A risk manager can view market exposure and statistical risk, and take an intra-day real-time view of a portfolio.”

Linedata has about 170 hedge fund clients on a global basis, a few have been involved in beta testing the integrated platform, and expects many to upgrade. There will be a cost to do this, but the company intends to ease the pain with a new initiative that will help clients upgrade more easily.

Gouldstone expects 15 to 20 clients to upgrade by the end of this year, with others following. He also hopes start-up hedge funds and others changing their technology will be attracted by the integrated version of the Global Hedge platform.
