Tinbergen Asset Management, a French alternative asset management company, has integrated SunGard’s MarketMap real-time data feeds with its market and transaction data flow management system. This environment helps Tinbergen to define its execution strategies and manage its complex trading algorithms in real-time.
SunGard’s MarketMap provides Tinbergen with real-time market data flows that can help the company automate and streamline its processes for monitoring real-time market information, ranging from asset prices to executed orders. The solution’s Java-based feed offered easy integration with Tinbergen’s existing systems, using the firm’s Linux platform.
Olivier Kamoun, founder and chief executive officer of Tinbergen, commented: “Using SunGard’s MarketMap data feeds, we were able to develop, in just three months, a fully integrated environment deployed on high-performance Linux servers that facilitates all our asset management processes. Therefore the solution helps us manage our timing and budget constraints, while meeting our growth requirements.”
Yassine Brahim, president of SunGard’s global trading business, added, “SunGard’s MarketMap has been designed as a flexible solution that can adapt to changing customer requirements. As the Tinbergen implementation shows, its Web-based architecture can offer easy integration with third party systems and optimized control of data costs. SunGard’s MarketMap offers buy-side firms and traders a choice of technology, data content and delivery mechanisms, meaning that timely market data is delivered in the expected format.”
