LatentZero Whitepaper Addresses Changing Faces of Compliance

New York, Toronto, London, 15th August 2006 - LatentZero™, a leading provider of front office software for the buy-side, has integrated FINCAD® (Financial CAD Corporation) Analytics into its Capstone Derivatives™ product.

LatentZero™, the leading provider of front-office systems for the buy-side, has published a whitepaper that looks at the current compliance issues within asset management firms and the impact it has on their businesses. The paper discusses the need to align compliance and operational risk management internally, and examines the increasingly close relationship between chief compliance officers and trustees. It also considers how successful attempts by global regulatory bodies to take a more pre-emptive approach to compliance monitoring and management have been.

Matt Grinnell, Compliance Consulting Manager at LatentZero said: "Compliance is now a matter of business survival and firms have had to change their approach to it over the last few years. The regulatory burden is becoming increasingly stringent and is now a significant part of operational risk calculations - requiring firms to invest in new systems to enable them to manage compliance effectively. This latest LatentZero whitepaper examines the effect of these changes and the need for all areas of the organization to be in alignment to achieve total compliance."
