Back to all Linedata announcements


London, 10 July 2006 - Linedata Services, a leading provider of software and services to the global financial services marketplace, is pleased to announce that River and Mercantile Asset Management has selected LongView ASP, Linedata's hosted portfolio management, order management and compliance system, including its fully managed electronic trading service, LongView LyNX. This solution provides secure end-to-end processing to fully support their investment management business.

Their choice of LongView ASP, an innovative global order management solution for managing all asset types, which includes LongView LyNX, providing certified trading connections to brokers and direct liquidity sources for Equity, Fixed Income and FX, was based on a number of factors, including complete functional coverage, hosted integration with third party service providers, and minimised system and technical administration.

Julian Cripps, Chief Operating Officer at River and Mercantile, said, "As a new business, we want to be able to concentrate on our core competencies in investment management and client relationship management. We decided early on to outsource our operations as far as possible, for our front and back office systems, as well as IT infrastructure and connectivity. We chose LongView Trading and LongView LyNX as it was the only solution that met all our functional requirements and could be deployed as an ASP solution."

Paul Roberts, Chief Operating Officer for Linedata Services, Europe, commented, "I am delighted to welcome River and Mercantile to our growing ASP customer base. By offering LongView and LongView LyNX through an ASP model, market leading functionality and connectivity is instantly more accessible to investment managers who do not want the overhead and burden of IT operations. With this solution they can still use sophisticated tools to optimise their operations, and keep full control of their core business. These systems have previously required significant financial and operational resources, but with ASP they are now open to financial institutions of all sizes."

One of Linedata's key strengths is its proven expertise in providing ASP solutions to the financial services industry for both the front and back office.
