HedgeSpeed Technology has selected DataArt, a financial solutions provider, as a strategic software engineering partner in order to deliver a comprehensive suite of middle office liquidity management solutions for hedge funds.
HedgeSpeed focuses on creating unique tools that optimize the entire portfolio finance process. The company’s flagship application tracks and analyzes stock borrow function from locates to detailed cost of carry. Additional systems include margin determination, cash control and derivatives contract management. The DataArt team will provide HedgeSpeed with supplemental high-end software engineering services utilizing their advanced systems development lifecycle and large-scale virtual cooperative approach.
Partnership with DataArt created a symbiotic relationship between a high-end software development firm with engineers in Russia and the Ukraine, and a visionary CEO and industry veteran, John DiRocco, former CFO of Citadel, where he’d built the business infrastructure necessary to grow from $800 million to over $11.5 billion across18 global strategies. HedgeSpeed offers a concept that didn’t exist in the marketplace to date: that of a single middle office platform incorporating stock locate, borrows, swaps, margin and cash management. There is no portfolio finance system on the market that was built be hedge fund professionals, catering directly to the needs of hedge funds.
