Odyssey Financial Technologies develops its Asset Management range with CAfIT

London - 20th August 2007

Odyssey Financial Technologies, a global industry leader in the provision of wealth and asset management solutions, reports a major development of its CAfIT Asset Management range with the launch of its latest version of CAfIT Performance, Attribution and Risk System and the expansion of its CAfIT team.

This expansion programme involves the move into larger offices and a phased recruitment schedule to bring the CAfIT team up to a new total of 30 staff by the end of 2007, which reflects the continuing success of the CAfIT Front Office Suite of specialist investment management solutions. Recent implementations include a number of leading international asset management organisations in Europe, as well as UK specialists operating in the alternative investment markets.

“Since we became part of Odyssey in May 2007, we have concentrated on strengthening our support function, as well as expanding our R&D team. This is an invigorating time for everyone here at CAfIT, seeing us grow dynamically, as well as evolving the next generation of advanced solutions, such as our recently launched Analytics Engine and our sophisticated Front Office Suite. We are also working closely with other divisions within Odyssey, so that we can capitalise on the group’s other core technology strengths, and integrate these into our asset management solutions portfolio,” expands Raquel Elias, CAfIT General Manager.
The latest version of CAfIT Performance, Attribution and Risk System incorporates an advanced new feature set and now includes the ability to handle attribution of strategies and tactical asset allocation, as well as extended support for fixed income and equity derivatives – providing fund managers and performance teams with a dynamic, interactive platform that can be tailored to match an individual investment process.

Odyssey’s Jem Tugwell explained, “Fund managers are under pressure to adopt ever more creative investment strategies in an increasingly complex market. We understand the importance of creating systems that support rather than dictate the investment process. Our Performance, Attribution and Risk System is the latest in a long line of specialist solutions that have evolved in line with demand. It allows a dynamic slice/dice of performance to be selected, so that returns sources can be properly tracked and analysed across a flexible and user-configurable selection of periods, transactions and analytics choices. We offer three levels of that CAfIT System, recognising that different organisations will want to apply differing levels of sophistication, and accordingly budget to this activity.”
