Asymmetric AM picks Imagine Software solution for portfolio management
Nordic focused hedge fund manager Asymmetric Asset Management has picked Imagine Software’s Imagine Trading System to handle real-time portfolio and risk management.
The manager runs a global macro strategy, with a long/short opportunistic overlay, and trades fixed income, FX, and equities.
William Härter, managing director of Asymmetric, said his company had evaluated eight technology providers before selecting the ITS solution. This interfaces directly with Credit Suisse, Asymmetric’s prime broker and fund administrator, to facilitate full straight-through-processing and enables comprehensive reporting.
Market risks are monitored using VaR and CvaR analyes, concentration and liquidity risk analyses, stress testing scenarios, and exposure limits (equity, FX, options, credit and interest rate risks).
