NEW YORK, NY and LONDON and HONG KONG--(Marketwire - October 25, 2010) - Paladyne Systems, Inc., the leading provider of next generation investment management solutions, today announced a new bundled offering known as Paladyne FastStart™, to address the operational and budgetary requirements of today's start-up and growing hedge funds. The solution combines Paladyne's firm-wide technology platform, with a selection of operational and IT support and hosting services designed to reduce cost and improve operational efficiency and control. Paladyne has completed its 30th start-up implementation in 2010 and continues to experience strong global demand for Paladyne FastStart.

"We have seen a huge increase in global start-up activity as well as a large number of fund closures due to cost pressures and inability to raise capital," said Sameer Shalaby, CEO of Paladyne Systems. "As a direct response to these trends, our bundled technology and services offering is a low cost and easily deployable solution that meets the complex due diligence requirements of institutional investors."

Paladyne FastStart includes:

  • Multi-asset class trading and order management
  • Pre- and post-trade compliance tracking and reporting 
  • Real-time P&L and portfolio exposure views
  • Intra-day risk analysis and model-based valuation
  • NAV reporting and daily portfolio accounting
  • Daily reconciliation and "shadow reporting" with fund administrators
  • Time-weighted and AIMR-compliant performance measurement
  • Automated security setup, corporate actions processing, and pricing with Paladyne Data Services™
  • Automated counterparty communication and daily reconciliation with Paladyne Tradelink™
  • Fully-hosted IT and disaster recovery solution with SAS 70 Type II certified global data centers and 24x7 monitoring and support services
  • Low-cost, turn-key implementation service

"As a start-up manager, we required a robust trading and portfolio management system that was affordable and that we could implement in a very short time frame. It needed to work seamlessly with our prime brokers, counterparties and administrator. Paladyne's fully hosted solution integrates all of our trading, portfolio management, accounting and risk requirements into a single platform and offers significant operational and IT support which reduces our personnel needs," said George Roeck, CFO/COO at Charter Bridge Capital Management.
