Market turbulence has forced fund managers to turn to new asset types to generate growth. Meanwhile, you require transparency and the ability to effectively and efficiently identify risk and exposure in order to raise capital. SunGard's Front Arena solution, a real-time, enterprise-wide platform for portfolio and risk management, is used by some of the largest hedge funds and fund administrators to manage their multi-strategy portfolios.
Front Arena provides traders with pricing, trading and position management, real-time profit and loss, and risk and sensitivity analysis. Managers and middle-office staff can view the portfolios from the highest level, customize these according to relevant criteria, and drill down to the lowest levels in real time. In the back office, Front Arena supports confirmations, settlements and interfaces to transaction processing networks.
Front Arena helps third-party administrators to:
- Handle a range of strategies, from standard to complex
- Support operations and life cycle processing
- Process real-time pricing
- Facilitate the capture of new trading strategies
