Lupus alpha Group chooses SimCorp Dimension

Bad Homburg, 16. November 2004 – Lupus alpha, an independent German Asset
Management Group, have chosen SimCorp Dimension for their fund management
activities. A preconfigured version of the software developed especially for mid-sized capital investment companies will come into operation.

Lupus alpha will use SimCorp Dimension in a "Core Satellite" strategy front to back. The main focus of the system implementation is not only to establish internal and external straight-through processing, but also the creation of a common data pool.

With SimCorp Dimension main issues like pre-order limit check, German legal
requirements, risk management and performance attribution are efficiently covered in one integrated system. In parallel the modern investment process of Lupus alpha is mapped completely within SimCorp Dimension.

Preconfigured version for mid-sized capital investment companies SimCorp counts on a preconfigured version of SimCorp Dimension for the specific needs of mid-sized capital investment companies. This version includes all relevant
instruments and functionality to reduce the implementation complexity significantly. All relevant settings, i.e. chart of accounts and calculation routines are already preparameterized.

Meanwhile the possibility to customize SimCorp Dimension persists.
"With SimCorp Dimension we decided for a modern, straight-through processing
system to manage our specialised fund products efficiently and customized, no matter if small and mid caps, absolute return or single hedge funds", explains Matthias Biedenkapp, partner in Lupus Alpha. "Although SimCorp already has several household names on their client list in Germany, we got the impression during the workshops that SimCorp understands and appreciates our individual requirements".

"Lupus alpha is a very important customer to us. And our partnership is certainly a verification of our strategic approach to offer a preconfigured version which fits the exact needs of a mid-sized capital investment company", Dr. Jochen Müller, Managing director of SimCorp GmbH concludes.
