- Implementation completed in six weeks
Sky Road LLC, a leading provider of custom hosted solutions for sophisticated cross asset trading strategies, announced today that Chicago Fundamental Investment Partners, LLC, a Chicago-based investment manager, recently went live with Sky Road, a next generation customized ASP solution, to provide risk management support for Chicago Fundamental's recently-launched hedge fund.
Chicago Fundamental required a robust risk management solution with an aggressive target implementation time to coincide with its fund launch.
The firm needed to enable its risk managers to perform scenario-based risk analysis on the fund's portfolio, including fundamental credit assets, while seamlessly integrating with third party asset valuation data providers. Sky Road met these requirements by leveraging the Sky Road Platform, a hosted software solution based on Calypso Technology's capital markets software, offering rapid deployment along with a high level of customization.
Levoyd Robinson, one of Chicago Fundamental's Managing Principals,
comments: "We selected Sky Road because we needed a solution that could be up and running very quickly and that could provide the necessary tools to support our diverse range of investment assets. We were impressed by the combined offering of Calypso's tools in the credit space and Sky Road's rapid integration with our fund administrator and market data providers. Sky Road understood the sophisticated instruments associated with our business and enabled us to meet our goals."
"We are very pleased to have added Chicago Fundamental as our latest ASP client and firmly believe that the Calypso-based Sky Road Platform delivers a world class solution for credit funds," commented John Borse, CEO of Sky Road LLC. "Chicago Fundamental now has an innovative ASP solution that is both customized and sophisticated, without a lengthy, complex software implementation or the traditional 'one size fits all' approach of hosted solutions. We are very excited to have worked with Chicago Fundamental to develop a scaleable ASP solution that not only meets their current needs but can evolve with them in the future."
