Linedata has launched an updated version of its portfolio management system, Linedata Global Hedge.

Designed specifically to meet the needs of the hedge fund and institutional investment communities, the new system aims to provide clients with full control of their portfolios and transactions, from order entry right through to settlement and custody.

Offered to alternatives managers, Linedata’s advanced portfolio management tool serves institutional investment managers and wealth advisors across Europe, North America, and Asia.

The new system also aims to addresses the challenges created by the current regulatory environment, putting increased pressure on the investment community to adapt to new rules and ensure compliance.

In addition the system aims to facilitate the trend of investment managers moving away from cash and diversifying into a broader range of asset classes.

“Alternative and institutional managers are facing a number of major challenges in their quest for alpha against the backdrop of an evolving regulatory landscape and a challenging economic environment,” said Brackenridge,” said Gary Brackenridge, global head of asset management at Linedata.

“Linedata’s portfolio management system equips hedge funds and institutional managers of all sizes with the means to meet these challenges head-on, while simultaneously ensuring operational efficiency and total accuracy in reporting thanks to automated processing.”
