Linedata (NYSE Euronext: LIN), the global leader for the investment management and credit industries, today announced the latest version of Linedata Beauchamp, its award-winning hedge fund portfolio management system. This new release â called Linedata Beauchamp Sigma â delivers a new and intuitive front-end for hedge funds to allow them to manage the increasing complexity of their business and to access and act on key data faster.
Mike de Verteuil, Linedataâs group business development director, said, âThe hedge fund market continues to develop, and in this increasingly competitive space, firms are looking to stand out from their competitors. At the same time, hedge funds face pressure from regulators to demonstrate transparency and operational best practices. Our innovations have focused on supporting the differentiation Linedataâs hedge fund clients require while meeting regulatory requirements and inspiring the confidence of investors.â
Linedata Beauchamp Sigma allows hedge fund managers to create highly flexible, custom workspaces that enable them to manage a variety of workflows according to the information they need. Itâs easy to use, requires minimal mouse clicks and empowers the business user by reducing reliance on IT support and its associated costs. Underlying it is the same rich, robust Linedata Beauchamp functionality.
Ed Gouldstone, head of hedge fund products for Linedata, said, "Technology needs to work harder for hedge funds and bring competitive advantage. Linedata Beauchamp Sigma provides the operational efficiency that hedge funds require to address regulatorsâ and investorsâ demands. As hedge fund managers move to reduce their vendor footprint and focus on one or two key suppliers, Linedata Beauchamp Sigma builds on our existing world class portfolio management solution, but with a new, ergonomic, intuitive front end. It uses shared technology elements with other products in our front to back hedge fund solution, resulting in a unified look and feel and even tighter integration.â
