Paladyne Systems, LLC today announced that it has licensed its PALADYNEâ„¢ product suite to Concept Capital, the Prime Brokerage division of Sanders Morris Harris Inc. Concept Capital provides accounting, administrative, proprietary trading, risk management, compliance and marketing solutions to hedge funds, proprietary traders and third-party marketers.

Concept Capital will use PALADYNE’s front- and middle-office software in conjunction with their existing portfolio accounting system, Advent Geneva®, resulting in a fully-integrated front- to back-office solution and a significantly expanded client service offering.

Concept Capital is implementing the PALADYNE suite as a local installation, and will directly host PALADYNE for external use by clients. Specifically, Concept Capital will offer their clients direct access to Paladyne’s front- and middle-office tools including order management, real-time P&L and portfolio management, data warehousing, custom reporting, and performance analysis, on a fully-hosted ASP (Application Service Provider) basis. The seamless integration of the PALADYNE suite with Concept Capital’s existing back-office accounting and risk infrastructure will streamline operations, improve the accuracy and timeliness of data and reporting, and significantly increase the scope and scalability of client services.
“In order to realize our vision of streamlined front- middle- and back-office full-service hedge fund services provider, we needed to complement our Advent Geneva® software with PALADYNE’s integrated suite of products,” said Mike Rosen, Managing Director of Concept Capital. “We believe that our service offering is truly unique, and with the PALADYNE infrastructure, we are now capable of servicing hedge funds of any size and complexity.”
