In a game of high risk and high returns, hedge fund traders with $1billion and more in assets under management perform high-wire acts every day. Even as they juggle trades in a fast and furious – and thoroughly multinational – marketplace, they’re under pressure to uncover previously unseen opportunities for consistently generating superior returns.
These daily trades and on-going instrument developments share one root need: actionable, reliable data, culled from multiple sources that can be trusted when the stakes are high.
Traders need to be in-the-know, and being in-the-know means:
Putting quality data under your control means much more than operational housekeeping. Expertly applied, it gives hedge funds a clear advantage in a competitive marketplace.
Faster instrument set-up
Assembling new products is essential to a hedge fund’s growth. But new instruments require new sources of data for their construction. The right data tools allow you to incorporate new data sources fast – without new coding or burdensome IT investment.
Worldwide trading means integrating data from exchanges across the globe. Your hedge fund needs a data structure that integrates sources for immediate side-by-side comparisons.
Getting an edge on errors
Sure, you need accurate information in order to make informed transactions. But more importantly, every error you detect ahead of your competition gives you a knowledge advantage. Mastering multiple data sources puts you in the pole position.
A disruption in one data source shouldn’t bring down your business. By incorporating redundant sources of data, hedge funds defend their continuity.
Asset Control is data management with a difference: since our founding in 1991, we have focused exclusively on the data needs of financial institutions. Today, Asset Control offers sophisticated data management tools that satisfy front office demands for rapid information access while providing a robust data infrastructure that simplifies back office management.
Our deep international experience and expertise allows us to craft solutions that meet the challenges of the most data-intensive traders. As an alternative to fixed data services or spreadsheet work-arounds, our products allow you to:

Add new sources on the fly: Asset Control integrates all data streams into one consistent format under your command. Need a new source? No problem. Our adaptors will have you up and running immediately.
Make changes without pain: As you create new instruments, you may need new data fields and identifiers. Asset Control allows your business analysts to make the adjustments you need without new coding or the services of a database developer.
Get updates fast: Asset Control continually monitors source changes and delivers updates to your team automatically – no disruptions, no hassles.
Manage workflows: We favor substance over flash through tools designed to process large volumes of complex data with multiple attributes. To simplify front office management, Asset Control offers roll-based, configurable workflows that can be adjusted by function and need.
