This relationship provides Reuters with a market data delivery channel that may be custom tailored and priced according to the exact needs of any hedge fund, regardless of size and complexity.
The PALADYNE product suite includes order management, real-time profits and losses and portfolio management, custom reporting, data warehousing and analytics, and client relationship management. By adding Reuters DataScope - including real-time pricing, terms and conditions, and analytical data - into its service offering, Paladyne's solution meets the demanding, real-time operational and decision-support requirements of today's most comprehensive hedge funds.
Caroline O'Shaughnessy, Global Head of Third Party Alliances, Enterprise Information, Reuters, said: "We are delighted to be integrated with Paladyne's premier front-to-back office product suite. This strategic alliance further enhances our Reuters DataScope Real-time Pricing and Reference Data offering targeted to the hedge fund community."
