Servicers' spot - Linedata's modular solutions for small managers

Linedata caters for budget conscious fund managers Ed Gouldstone

Linedata makes it as easy as possible for startups and emerging managers to get on to their platform and demonstrate the same operational strategy as funds ten times the size.

Linedata is a global solutions provider. The listed firm is headquartered in France, and achieved revenues of €137.3 million in 2011. Ed Gouldstone, head of Hedge Fund Product Management told Opalesque that Linedata provides technology and services to the financial service industry, with a particular interest in the alternatives sector.

"Our software assists managers in meeting their operational needs. That includes valuation of portfolios, trading, modeling portfolios, making portfolio management decisions, investment accounting, and compliance; the full coverage of operational technology and software that an alternative manager may need," he explained. "We deal with both emerging managers, startups, right through clients who run more than $50 billion in assets," he added.

There is a solution that the firm reserves for hedge funds, which is called Linedata Global Hedge. Gouldstone noted it is particularly relevant for the smaller or emerging managers who are usually more budget-conscious, as it is modular.

"In a similar way to Microsoft software, where you have got your PowerPoint and various other modules which help you run different aspects of your business; each module can be taken on its own or as part of a larger package, and modules can be added at a later date," he said.
