In this document Linedata uses its experience in working with hedge funds of all sizes across the globe to establish the criteria to be used in assessing the suitability of a technology vendor and solution for their business.
Key areas for consideration are:
Does the product support for alternative strategies, including full asset class coverage, full product lifecycle support, real-time P&L, strategy attribution and trade allocation?
- Does it provide operational control over multi prime workflows, including an understanding of how the system consolidates and presents information and the provision of auditable data trails and consistent views?
- Can the vendor support your business: Are they financially stable? do they have the staff and operational infrastructure to provide a service which truly meets your current and future needs?
