Comada Partners with Custom House to Deliver Online Transaction Tracking Platform for Hedge Fund Investors

HedgeCo News - Transaction technology developer Comada today announced that it has partnered with hedge fund administrator Custom House to launch a new platform for fund managers and their investors. Launched this week, the platform allows investors in hedge funds administered by Custom House to invest, track and receive investment and redemption confirmations electronically. Most importantly, it achieves this via browser-based architecture that precludes the need to download software to a desktop computer, seamlessly integrating with, and extending in-house legacy technology.

"The hedge fund industry has needed an application like this for some time now," said Rupert Vaughan Williams, Co-Founder of Comada. "We are delighted to be working with Custom House who are committed to best of breed technology. This platform significantly raises the bar for hedge fund investing. Users of this technology can now rely on robust infrastructure that electronically processes and reconciles transactions from a single reference point. It is specifically designed to minimise the operational risks of the day to day management of portfolios of alternative investments."

Comada specialises in designing and delivering transaction-based solutions for the managed assets industry, particularly hedge funds. Its core management team has been working together in the industry for almost two decades. It provides both bespoke and off-the-shelf solutions for hedge fund managers and their clients. Comada partnered with Custom House to deliver an advanced platform that would further integrate investors into the investment cycle and help reduce operational risk.

Dermot Butler, Chairman of hedge fund administrator Custom House commented: "We wanted to deliver a service to our customers which they could rely on. It is now possible for both managers and investors to track the progress of investments and redemptions electronically, real time, 24 hours a day. Thanks to our partnership with Comada, we believe we are the first hedge fund administrator to be able to offer this particular kind of service."

Custom House is responsible for the administration of more than $40 billion in hedge fund assets globally, across a range of different investment strategies. It has established its credentials as being a first mover and innovator in the arena of hedge fund administration.
