MARTIN CURRIE COMPLETES LATENTZERO IMPLEMENTATION

London & Boston - 02 May, 2006

Martin Currie, the Edinburgh-based specialist investment manager with around £12 (US$20) billion assets under management, has successfully completed the implementation of LatentZero’s front-office suite, Capstone.

Capstone is comprised of: Tesseract, LatentZero's decision support and order generation solution; Minerva, its order management and trading system; and Sentinel, its pre and post trade compliance application.

By having all three LatentZero products working together in real time, Martin Currie will be able to take advantage of faster STP and more effective pre- and post-trade compliance.

“The implementation processes itself was made as smooth as possible as experts from LatentZero were on hand to help at every stage,” explains Grant Suttie, Technical Programme Manager at Martin Currie. “The Capstone elements work well together and LatentZero’s open and flexible architecture means that they also integrate effectively with other systems across the business. So we are feeling the benefits of running one highly functional, integrated platform across our front office.”

Commenting on the completion of the implementation, Paul Charie, Director of Client Services, LatentZero said: “We have worked closely with Martin Currie to ensure that the Capstone rollout was completed successfully. Capstone’s unique architecture means that it can be easily integrated with existing front, middle and back office systems. That’s why it is the system of choice for some of the best asset managers in the world.”
