FinLab SA provides advanced software products and services to investment professionals making asset allocation decisions on both Hedge Funds and Traditional Funds.
Mr. Denis de Pentheny OÂKelly CEO of Finlab SA stated ÂThe alternative funds industry passed the landmark $1 trillion under management in the first half of 2004 and is predicted to pass $4 trillion in 2010, consumers of these hedge funds such as Millennium expect that an investment will deliver an absolute return with capital preservation through portfolio diversification. This can only be achieved if the allocation decision is based upon the proven disciplines of quality research & analysis, financial innovation, portfolio construction, due-diligence and client reporting. We believe that the decision made by Millennium to deploy PackhedgeÂsÂ set of quantitative and qualitative tools is proof that our solution provides a true best of breed solution for active professionals in the Hedge Fund Industry.
Michael Huttman, Chief Investment Officer at Millennium said we now have to balance accuracy, return, timeliness and productivity when we select and allocate funds in the alternative asset market. With over 8000 funds in the universe under 6000 managers which have multiple strategies and styles means the decision making process is now significantly more complex. A portfolio is constructed to seek optimum diversity by manager, strategy, economy, geography, market, trading style, liquidity, duration and size. The Fund invests in strategies seeking to have low correlations to each other. The portfolio risk parameters and weightings of each manager have to be monitored rigorously, and must be re-evaluated regularly, according to market opportunity. Our competitive advantage will come from our experienced, focused operating team using a tool such as PackHedgeÂ that allows them immediate, independent, and accountable decision-making in the fast-moving Alternative Investment marketplace.
