NEW YORK, NY, May 16, 2006 – Paladyne Systems LLC today announced that it has licensed its PALADYNE™ product suite to Caledonian Fund Services, a global provider of fund administration services. Caledonian will use the front- and middle-office tools within the PALADYNE suite in combination with their existing portfolio accounting system, Advent Geneva® to streamline operations and to significantly expand their technology and client service offering.
Caledonian will implement PALADYNE ASP, a fully-hosted application service provider solution, and will access the platform remotely from each of its global office locations. By leveraging PALADYNE ASP, Caledonian may expand their service offering by providing direct client access to the PALADYNE product suite including order management, real-time PNL and portfolio management, custom reporting, data warehousing and analytics, and client relationship management. PALADYNE ASP solution is a fully hosted, all inclusive offering including software, hardware, database maintenance, and IT and disaster recovery services.
“It was clear to us that the combination of Paladyne’s products and Advent Geneva provides us with a leading technology platform in the fund administration industry,” said Ali Mudeen, Director of Caledonian Fund Services. “The tight integration of PALADYNE and Geneva allows us to scale our business significantly with our existing staff levels while improving the overall timeliness and scope of our services offering.”
Caledonian began their aggressive focus on fund administration services by acquiring Advent Geneva as their global portfolio accounting platform. As a follow-up, Caledonian expanded its U.S. operations earlier this year by launching Caledonian Fund Services (USA) LLC, a provider of onshore fund administration and tax consulting services to hedge funds and fund of funds.
With its latest acquisition of the PALADYNE product suite, Caledonian has created a world-class front- to back-office technology infrastructure capable of servicing hedge funds of any size or complexity from start-ups to multi-strategy global institutions. The integration of PALADYNE with Advent Geneva will allow Caledonian to streamline operations, improve the timeliness and accuracy of information, and expand the overall scope of services available to their clients.
“We are very excited to partner with an aggressive, technology savvy fund administrator like Caledonian,” said Sameer Shalaby, Chief Executive Officer of Paladyne Systems. “With a fully integrated front- to back-office platform which may be offered directly to their customers, Caledonian is well positioned to become a leading technology-driven fund administrator.”
