Monsoon Capital, a hedge fund which focuses on emerging markets, has selected Athena System's Aura solution to handle its order management, portfolio analysis and reporting for its futures index fund. Monsoon evaluated all key players in this space and selected Athena Aura because of its powerful technology and its comprehensive functional footprint. In addition to its order management functionality, Monsoon plans on using Athena Aura's data warehouse to store all trading activity and allow it to do time series reporting, risk management analytics, and "what-if" scenario analytics.
