Linedata Services Launches LongView Version 7.1; Multi-Asset Solution Streamlines Buy-Side Workflows

Linedata Services (NYSE Euronext: LIN), the global leader for investment management and credit technology, announced today the release of Version 7.1 of its award-winning LongView platform. The new LongView platform is part of a comprehensive suite that provides real-time insights to alternative and traditional asset managers across their entire business, helping them to quickly see, understand and respond to opportunities.

LongView 7.1 includes a host of new functionality, including real-time EMS capabilities, as well as straight-through processing of fixed income, electronic trading enhancements, a robust compliance rule-builder, and enhanced counterparty risk exposure reporting.

“The so-called time-plus-zero environment, where trades and settlements occur in real-time, has created information overload at many buy-side firms,” said Gavin Little-Gill, Executive Vice President in Charge of Global Front-office Products. “By integrating clear-cut workflows, intuitive execution management and real-time market data tools, Linedata Services has taken the lead by providing actionable intelligence to its clients.”

LongView 7.1 is a best-of-breed multi-asset solution for the buy side that provides advanced electronic trading functionality for all asset types. Linedata Services is at the technological forefront of fixed income functionality with LongView 7.1, which includes full support for TBA mortgages and EPN Allocations, improved ease of use, connectivity with a host of fixed income venues, a counterparty exposure dashboard, and 14 new swap types.

LongView also offers embedded partner algorithms through its proactive Liquidity Partner Program and full operations and support to all vendor venues and platforms (DMA, ECNs, ATS, Dark Pools) through its LyNX Service.

Combined with its robust portfolio management functionality, its real-time pre-trade compliance, and flexible reporting capabilities, LongView has become an essential tool to streamline the flow of information, to maximize the buy side’s existing IT and human resources and increase profitability.

“LongView’s ability to excel with multiple asset types, and to streamline buy-side workflows are vital to the buy side in the current market,” said Linedata’s Little-Gill. “These will help hedge funds and traditional asset managers do more with their current platform, and achieve improved rates of return as the market recovery gains momentum.”
