Global Long/Short Manager Expands Investment Suite Access
Eze Software Group, a premier provider of global investment technology, today announced that Carrhae Capital, a London-based long/short asset manager, has expanded its use of EzeSoft Investment Suite with portfolio accounting capabilities. Already a long-time user of Eze Software’s OMS, the hedge fund manager now uses Eze Portfolio Accounting (formerly Tradar) to manage its portfolio accounting needs, including valuation and reporting. Carrhae Capital has approximately $1 billion in assets under management and focuses on emerging markets.
Carrhae Capital expanded its use of EzeSoft Investment Suite because of its flexibility, integrated workflows, and Eze Software’s approach to customer service. Eze Portfolio Accounting is being used for P&L and NAV calculations, reconciliation, and reporting. “We found Eze Portfolio Accounting easy to use, and flexible enough to meet our reporting needs. There’s no need for third-party services or a large staff to maintain the system, and reports are easily extracted,” said Adrian Headon, Carrhae Capital’s Chief Operating Officer. “The seamless workflow between the OMS and accounting features ensures that we can address our trading and accounting needs efficiently on one platform and with one service team, which simplifies our day-to-day operations significantly.”
“Carrhae Capital was looking for a robust, easy-to-use out-of-the box reporting solution to meet reporting requirements,” said Gerry Gualtieri, Senior Managing Director for EMEA. “Seamless integration between order management and portfolio accounting allows our clients to optimize their workflows quickly and effectively. We continue to focus on building easy-to-implement solutions to make day-to-day trade processing easier.”
Eze Software added 55 clients in EMEA in 2015, attracting both long-only and hedge fund clients. There are more than 100 employees working in Eze Software’s London office, who focus on supporting more than 300 buy-side investment firms. Overall, there were more than 35 deals in 2015 involving some combination of applications in EzeSoft Investment Suite.
