LIM Advisors successfully goes live with Capstone™ from Fidessa LatentZero
Hong Kong, 22nd June 2009 - Fidessa Group LIM Advisors Limited, the Asian-based multi-strategy investment group with approximately US$900 million in assets under management, has successfully gone live with Fidessa LatentZero's front office suite, Capstone™. More than 20 team members in LIM's Hong Kong headquarters are now using Capstone to support portfolio management, compliance, trading, and operations.
LIM has fully integrated Capstone with its front and middle offices to produce a seamless workflow. This integration includes live market data for enhanced analysis, in-house compliance rules for pre-trade checks, FIX network for electronic trading, and straight through processing to LIM's accounting platform and third party administrator.
George W. Long, the Founder and Chief Investment Officer of LIM Advisors said, "We wanted to build an institutional architecture to support all of the asset classes in our multi-strategy business. Fidessa LatentZero's functionality across equities, funds, listed derivatives, FX, fixed income, and OTC products has delivered. We have also developed an excellent partnership with Richard Jones and his team, and I look forward to working with them more in the future."
Richard Jones, CEO for Fidessa LatentZero, said, "We are continuing to develop our front office solutions for all types of asset managers, and this implementation is a further demonstration that Capstone is as well-suited to specialist managers as it is to the larger global asset management firms. Asia is an important focus for us, and we are pleased to be partnering with one of the leading Asian asset managers as we look to consolidate our position in the region."
Capstone is a fully integrated front-office position analysis and trading solution that provides support for all asset classes, including OTC derivatives, with real-time positions and P&L, integrated market data, order management and trading, and integrated compliance in one easy-to-use application.
