LIM Advisors selects Capstone™ from Fidessa LatentZero™


London, 25th September 2008 - LIM Advisors Limited, the Asian-based multi-strategy investment group with approximately US$1.5 billion in assets under management, has selected Fidessa LatentZero's front office suite, Capstone™, to provide support to front office analytics, order management, trading and compliance. The solution will cover equities, listed and OTC derivatives, fixed income and FX.

More than twenty users in LIM Advisors' offices in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Beijing and Connecticut, will eventually use Capstone. LIM Advisors will also use the Fidessa LatentZero Trading Network (LTN) to connect with brokers, ECNs and other alternative trading systems globally.

George W. Long, Founder and Chief Investment Officer for LIM Advisors said: "The selection of Fidessa LatentZero's Capstone is an important strategic decision for us. This new partnership will improve our processes, controls, and information management to deliver an industry-leading architecture. We conducted a thorough search of solutions in the region and found that Capstone provides a robust single platform to support our growing multi-strategy business. We are also pleased with Fidessa LatentZero's commitment to provide first-rate support to our Hong Kong headquarters and LIM offices around the world."

Richard Jones, CEO for Fidessa LatentZero, said: "This implementation further demonstrates that Capstone is an ideal solution for hedge funds and smaller Asian-based specialist managers enabling them to benefit from the same robust functionality as the larger global asset management firms. LIM Advisors, with their diverse investment strategies and wide asset class coverage, is an ideal partner for Fidessa LatentZero as we continue our expansion in the Asian region."

Fidessa LatentZero currently has over 180 buy-side clients, including nine of the world's ten largest asset managers, with around 20 customers in Asia.
