Alternative Investor Partners With Former Head Currency Trader at Tudor

Alternative investor Last Atlantis Capital Management and Jerry Considine, former head currency trader at Tudor Investment, have partnered to introduce LACM Foreign Exchange, Share Class W within the Last Atlantis Partners Fund.

The share class will be traded by Mr. Considine and seeks to capitalize on near-term opportunities in the global currency futures and foreign exchange markets.

The short-term, largely discretionary methodology was developed by Mr. Considine and has produced consistently non-correlated returns, according to the press release. "It combines fundamental and technical market analysis, sentiment evaluation, crowd psychology assessment, and money management to create a risk-averse investment strategy."

Irwin Berger, managing partner of Last Atlantis said, “Jerry has established an exceptional track record and reputation over the course of his career including stellar turns at Tudor and his own trading firm,.....His currency program adds another quality alternative to our Last Atlantis Partners platform.”

With the launch of this new share class, Mr. Considine continues his nearly 30-year career trading the currency markets.

Last Atlantis Partners, LLC is master-feeder offering currently providing onshore and offshore investors access to fifteen segregated share classes with individual fund strategies incorporating proprietary and discretionary options, trend following futures, multi-strategy, macro discretionary, credit receivables, real estate financing and others.

Reuters Hosts Solution for Hedge Fund Trading in Singapore

Reuters and BT announced the launch of the lowest latency Proximity Hosting Solution for hedge funds trading on the Singapore Exchange Limited.

Rama Pillai, Senior Vice President of Intermediaries and Market Access at SGX said, "The Singapore Exchange is seeing an increasing demand for low-latency direct access to our markets by high-frequency traders as well as our traditional customer base. We welcome the Reuters Proximity Hosting Solution."

Edward Haddad, Managing Director, ASEAN, Reuters said, "We recognize the increasing demand for low latency feeds to meet the needs of a growing automated and programmed trading community on the Singapore Exchange. Reuters provides our clients with a complete suite of comprehensive capabilities -- from algorithmic trading tools, such as tick history, tick capture and time-stamped news, to proximity hosting to allow our customers to be first to market."

Demand for trading services that are hosted within close proximity of the exchange is increasing as institutions look to take advantage of low latency data provision and reduced time to trade execution. This enables firms to gain competitive advantage through programmed trading strategies that can consume data and execute trades more quickly.

This proximity hosting solution provides an end-to-end hosted service that is fully managed, and that also allows clients to co-locate their own applications within the Reuters data centre.
