Eze Castle Integration focuses new platform Ledex Systems on fund of hedge funds industry

Tuesday, September 21, 2010
Opalesque Industry Update - Eze Castle Integration, Inc., a leading provider of IT services, technology and consulting to the investment industry, today launched a new subsidiary, Ledgex Systems. The new company is delivering a comprehensive fund of funds technology platform that streamlines the investment management process and fills an unmet market need.

The Ledgex platform, delivered by Ledgex Systems, helps fund of hedge funds, pensions and private equity funds organize, manage and automate their business data and processes faster and more efficiently than current market offerings so they can better service clients, meet compliance regulations and outperform their competitors. The Ledgex platform is a result of hands-on work with clients to fill an unmet need for managing investment data. Based on the insights gleaned from working with some of the industry’s leading fund of funds, Ledgex helps investment managers create actionable results that impact their investment portfolios.

Currently used by multiple alternative investment managers, the Ledgex platform includes: Ledgex Manager: A comprehensive portfolio management system for investment managers, the Manager module delivers advanced analytics, administration and decision support to manage the investment pipeline and due diligence, estimate tracking and final valuation processes.

Ledgex Monitor: A fully customizable investment monitoring system, the Monitor module provides the tools necessary to monitor and track firm-defined fund attributes for detailed analysis, fund attribution and transparency reporting.

Ledgex Alerts: An integrated enterprise alerting engine, the Alerts module enables individuals or groups at a firm to monitor internal and external activity, content, business data and relevant industry information.

Ledgex Investor Relationship Management (IRM): The IRM module is a workflow tool for managing quantitative and qualitative data for a firm’s investors and hedge fund or private equity interests.

“Eze Castle Integration has a history of investing in new ventures that change the technology and business landscape for investment management firms. Ledgex Systems is one such company. The Ledgex platform was developed by working hand-in-hand with some of the industry’s most respected fund-of-funds and we believe it is poised to introduce operational efficiencies previously unattainable by most firms,” said John Cahaly, CEO, Eze Castle Integration.

Crestline Investors is a hedge fund sponsor that manages multiple hedge fund of funds. "As with most firms in our industry, we faced the challenge of managing and efficiently leveraging the significant amounts of data stored across our organization," said John Cochran, Vice President, Crestline Investors.

“In order to solve these challenges, Crestline and Eze Castle worked collaboratively to evaluate best practice methodologies and technology to develop and define core workflows built into the Ledgex technology platform. The Ledgex platform delivers a comprehensive feature set that has allowed our firm to optimize our portfolio management, improve decision support processes and streamline information sharing companywide."

Eze Castle Integration veteran, Mark Coriaty has assumed the role of managing director of Ledgex Systems. Coriaty previously served as director of professional services at Eze Castle Integration.
