This hedge fund middle-office provider has bridged the gap between poor operational infrastructure in the hedge fund world and the stringent requirements of institutions such as pension schemes. Counting Gottex Fund Managers among its clients, Comada is using its MATshare product to replace the use of spreadsheets as a risk control tool at fund of hedge fund firms with a better technology architecture. This in turn allows the fund houses to scale their business. Judges recognised this as a major necessity within the institutional hedge fund world, and so Comada was given a special commendation. FactSet
FactSet, through the acquisition of Derivative Solutions, has expanded beyond equity analytics and now offers fixed-income portfolio analytic tools too. Judges recognised the acquisition and integration as a positive development in portfolio analytics, with two major assets classes now accessible in one place.
