Paladyne Systems, a solutions provider to the global hedge fund industry, today announced that Maples Finance, an independent global fund services provider with US$30 billion in assets under administration, has successfully implemented the Paladyne product suite as its middle and back office solution. Maples Finance licensed Paladyne’s Application Service Provider (ASP) platform, a comprehensive software, hosting and managed IT solution as well as Advent’s Geneva as its global accounting engine, all of which was implemented by Paladyne and included as part of Paladyne’s hosted platform.

Maples Finance selected Paladyne to streamline its middle and back office operations and to expand its middle office services capabilities to include: trade confirmation and settlement processing, counterparty reconciliation, daily P&L and NAV reporting, reference data management and corporate actions processing, enhanced pricing services, and integrated risk reporting.

Maples Finance implemented the full Paladyne product suite beginning with Paladyne Security Master and Paladyne Price Master as the centralised reference data solution for security terms and conditions, corporate actions, and pricing. Advent’s Geneva was implemented as the general ledger in combination with Paladyne Analytics Master for data warehousing, custom reporting, and automated reconciliation. Paladyne Import Manager was implemented for automating trade file processing and Paladyne Business Manager was deployed as the enterprise-wide workflow management, exception monitoring, and job scheduling solution.

Maples Finance has also leveraged Paladyne’s ASP platform, which includes 24×7 technical and product support, hardware, product upgrades, quality assurance, and mirrored (“hot site”) disaster recovery. Paladyne’s ASP solution enabled Maples Finance to go into production in a short timeframe and at a significantly lower total cost of ownership as compared to an in-house solution.

“After an extensive due diligence process, we concluded that the core functionality provided by the Paladyne platform would not only allow us to streamline our operations at significantly less cost, but would provide us with a platform to build out a comprehensive middle-office services solution for our clients,” said Scott Somerville, director of fund administration at Maples Finance. “We believe that Paladyne’s platform, when combined with the bespoke integration and custom reporting solutions developed by our in-house IT professionals, provides us with a significant competitive advantage amongst fund administrators in terms of scale, control, and scope of services.”

Sameer Shalaby, chief executive officer of Paladyne Systems, said that Maples Finance was differentiating itself from competitors with expanded services and automation. “Paladyne’s solution suite allows for efficiencies enabling administrators to free up resources that can be better used on client services and revenue generating activities,” Shalaby said. “By leveraging Paladyne’s ASP solution, Maples Finance will provide a highly competitive offering leading to increased scalability, productivity, and growth.”
