July 28, 2014



Atreaus Capital, LP, a global macro hedge fund manager based in New York is now live with SunGards Hedge360 Risk Reporting Service.

Delivered as a managed service, the Hedge360 Risk Reporting Service provides highly customized daily risk reports, offering transparency to investors and integrated internal risk management to hedge funds.

Trading a broad range of products with an emphasis on FX and commodities, in the form of both OTC derivatives and futures, Atreaus Capital required customized daily risk reporting and monitoring of a broad range of risk measures and limits, on a daily basis; including VaR, sensitivity and exposure limits. SunGards Hedge360 Risk Reporting Service helps the hedge fund by providing a cost-effective, fully hosted and managed service that encompasses the entire reporting process including; data mapping, data validation and exception management, report generation and analytical result validation. The managed service ensures the hedge fund manager has an independent and fully validated view of risk and is also able to achieve economies of scale that further helps the hedge fund manager deliver cost efficiencies in todays market.

Following implementation of the project we are already benefitting from SunGards in-depth risk expertise and are able to dedicate time to managing risk, rather than managing data, processes and infrastructure. The managed service provides engineered market data and allows us to grow our reporting capabilities with ease.

Interactive web dashboards provide an easy-to-use visual interface for analyzing and attributing risk using a broad range of risk metrics including VaR, sensitivities and exposures. SunGard is already known to us through our use of SunGards Front Arena and the expertise of the SunGards Hedge360 Risk Reporting Service team further strengthens the service we can provide to our clients. Andrew Downes, COO, Atreaus Capital, LP.
