Monash Investors taps Imagine Software for risk management

02 October 2012  |  1201 views  |  0 Source: Imagine Software

Imagine Software, a leading provider of real-time portfolio and risk management solutions worldwide, today announced that Monash Investors implemented the Imagine Trading System for its award-winning risk management capabilities.

Australia-based Monash is a global long/short absolute return fund with a focus on Australian equities, options and futures.

Shane Fitzgerald, Director at Monash Investors, said, "As we prepared to launch, all of our key decision-makers agreed that deploying best of breed software across functional areas would lend strong credibility to our offering. After evaluating a number of options, Imagine was selected based on a variety of factors. First, the system came highly recommended; second, with its global focus and powerful analytics Imagine is uniquely positioned to address the needs of newer funds, which are typically more sensitive to exposures.

"In terms of specific functionality," Fitzgerald continued, "Imagine's state-of-the-art system enabled us to run VaR, Monte Carlo, and scenario analyses quickly, seamlessly, and easily. Finally, Imagine's flexible system—with its unmatched blend of robust software, rich data universe, and dedicated service offerings—represents excellent value for money relative to its peers."

Following a smooth implementation, Imagine is now fully integrated with the firm's fund administrator, as well as its order management and research systems. Within this framework, Monash leverages Imagine's sophisticated real-time solution to streamline their operational workflow and to assess macro risk and liquidity risk.

Angus Johnston, Head of Asia-Pacific Sales at Imagine, said, "Being selected by a well-respected group of industry veterans is especially rewarding. It re-affirms our belief that Imagine's cloud-based system makes institutional grade portfolio and risk management software accessible to funds of all shapes and sizes. We welcome Monash to the Imagine community of clients and look forward to working closely with them in the years ahead."
