Factorial Management, an Asian hedge fund manager based in Hong Kong has added an integrated portfolio and risk management system from Imagine Software.

The hedge fund manager said the new solution will assist it to invest across asset classes, using Imagine as its core front, middle and back office system.

Factorial Management chief investment officer Barun Agarwal said, "Our multi-asset class approach required a powerful system with integrated portfolio and risk management capabilities and the capacity to handle a wide range of instruments, which Imagine provided."

Factorial Management chief operating officer Adam Wallace said, "Following a comprehensive evaluation of nearly half a dozen applications, we found Imagine to be the optimal solution for us. It provided institutional-grade functionality in a cost-effective, cloud-based system that satisfied our operational and risk requirements from front to back."

The fund manager said that the software imparts significant role in the internal booking and accounting system, interfacing directly with Factorial’s fund administrator and prime brokers, as well as to provide portfolio and risk management functionality.
