LatentZero’s Capstone Suite To Include New Derivatives Processing Tool

London, 24th May 2005 - LatentZero, one of the world's leading providers of buy-side front office technology for the global asset management industry, is set to incorporate a comprehensive buy-side OTC derivatives analysis and trading module into its Capstone product suite.

Capstone Derivatives, which will be launched at the SIA 2005 Technology Management Conference on 21st of June in New York City, will allow the buy-side trader to take advantage of full lifecycle trading, an integrated valuation engine and powerful risk and performance analysis.

"Buy-side managers are increasingly using derivatives to broaden their sources of return and to add finer-grained control to their risk management, but until now they have been hampered by having to use a range of disparate tools to manage derivatives workflows. LatentZero will offer portfolio managers and traders a single integrated solution through which they manage all assets and derivatives," explains Richard Jones, CEO of LatentZero. "This new module is in response to customer demand and will be the first front office OTC solution to be specifically developed for the buy-side."

Capstone is comprised of: Tesseract, for portfolio modeling and order generation; Minerva, for order management and trading, and Sentinel, for pre and post trade compliance management.
