New Corporate Headquarters Features Dedicated State-of-the-Art Facility for New Hedge Fund Managers to Beta Test Fund Strategies Prior to Launch
NEW YORK, Dec. 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liquid Holdings Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:LIQD), a provider of a single platform that integrates order and execution management with real-time risk, reporting, shadow accounting, and managed services in the cloud for the financial services community, today announced a new "simulator" program that allows emerging hedge fund managers to beta test their fund strategies on the Liquid OERMS platform under the guidance of Liquid's Solutions Specialists.
In Liquid's new corporate headquarters in midtown Manhattan, the Client Service Center was built in part to provide emerging hedge funds with a unique opportunity to test drive their investment strategies on the Liquid platform. The program was initiated to help fund managers who are registering or launching to simulate portfolio management tasks in today's market on Liquid's institutional-quality order, execution and risk management platform. Powered by the cloud, managers would see and actively manage their global equities, futures, options and FX strategies in a real-time environment using the same system that established fund managers rely on.
"The three most important decisions a new hedge fund manager needs to make are selecting a prime broker, a fund administrator, and the technology infrastructure and controls to support their fund strategy - and that's where Liquid comes into the equation," said Brian Storms, CEO of Liquid. "We are offering managers the ability to upload their portfolios and test the power of the Liquid platform. Our Solution Specialists can walk them through best practices across trading and risk management, while simulating how their strategy would have performed in a live trading environment as well as over the last six months."
In addition, managers can test the full power of the Liquid platform including 'what-if' position modifications to study the real-time impact trades have on performance, P&L and risk for entire portfolios as well as single instruments. Upon completion of the simulation, managers leave with a two-month trial account.
"We are 100% dedicated to providing the highest level of service and support to our clients, and with the simulator rooms in our new headquarters we can do that even before they are officially launched," said Storms. "We are pleased with the positive feedback on the user experience that we have received from hedge fund managers who are taking advantage of the platform."
