Linedata Services, a leading provider of software and services to the global financial services marketplace, today announced the release of Version 5.3 of its Beauchamp FundManager portfolio management system.
The new release of the software will allow hedge fund managers to monitor NAV in real-time and marks the continued development of Beauchamp, Linedata's specialist hedge fund software suite.
Beauchamp FundManager is a highly configurable and scalable portfolio management system, offering a tamper-proof platform for trade capture, P&L and portfolio analysis, custom report design, and automated reconciliations with counterparties.
Employing a single Oracle database that is both open and highly scalable, Beauchamp FundManager has been installed with over 250 hedge fund management companies around the world, each managing anywhere from $10 million to $12 billion of assets.
Version 5.3 introduces enhanced swap financing functionality, allowing clients to calculate accurately and monitor the cost of financing of CFD/Swap and cash balances. In addition, the software now offers simple, effective handling of automated expense/income accruals, management and performance fees, and withholding tax, enhancing the calculation of intra-day Net Asset Value (NAV).
Together, the new functionality in FundManager Version 5.3 gives hedge fund managers a view of their funds that is accurate down to the smallest detail.
Clare Flynn Levy, President of Beauchamp Hedge Fund Solutions, commented "As specialists, our focus is on developing software that allows fund managers and traders to concentrate on their core competencies, whatever and wherever they are trading. FundManager not only helps our clients manage the increasingly heavy load of operational risk management and reporting, it now gives them the advantage of one of the best P&L analysis engines available on the market. FundManager Version 5.3 is an example of our commitment to investing to meet the evolving needs of hedge fund managers around the world."
Existing users of Beauchamp FundManager can upgrade without the purchase of a new 5.3 license. Version 5.3 is also compatible with FundManager Desktop, the new Beauchamp trading blotter, which allows users to execute and manage orders both manually and electronically via FIX.
