LatentZero North American Client Conference Goes From Strength To Strength

New York, Toronto, 25th October 2006 Representatives of LatentZero's North American customer base had the opportunity to meet their peers, discuss the latest industry trends, and receive product training as well as presentations and updates from the company's consultants and specialists at its recent North American Client Conference in Boston. This was the third time the user group had congregated and was the biggest event yet, with more than 70 attendees.

This year's keynote presentation was given by Mike Thorfinnson, Chief Risk Officer of TD Asset Management, who discussed 'The State of Investment Management in Three and Five Years' Time.' In addition, there were breakout and training sessions over the two days that covered both technical and business aspects of Sentinel, LatentZero's pre- and post-trade compliance solution, and Minerva and Tesseract, LatentZero's order management and portfolio analysis systems respectively.
<>Sentinel topics included complex rule building for fixed income, non-traditional compliance testing, and monitoring workflow. For Minerva and Tesseract, topics included impact of the use of FIX and algorithms, tax lot mining and allocation; and futures and FX functionality.

The event also boasted four partner exhibitors: Lehman Brothers, Olmstead Associates, Thomson Financial and JP Morgan, while the cocktail reception was sponsored by LatentZero partner, Liquidnet.

Cindy Arcari, Director of North American Sales and Client Management at LatentZero said: "The User Group has become a key event in the calendar both for LatentZero and our clients. It's a key element in the service that we offer to clients and is part of the close working relationship that we develop from the outset. Our users have built up a valuable bank of knowledge and its great to share that and gain valuable insight into the way our services are used on a day-to-day basis. The event is always well-received, full of energy and inspiring - in fact the feedback just keeps improving year-on-year. We're already looking forward to 2007."
