Is Your Tech Stack Supporting Your Investment Goals?
Optimizing and managing an agile portfolio strategy should be top of mind for hedge fund managers. Ensuring that your company’s IT infrastructure keeps you in compliance with the various regulations that hedge funds face is also a priority – allowing you to stay on track with supporting your investment goals.
While it may seem like a stretch that your choice in technology can directly affect your investment performance, the rising use of technology to allow funds to quickly adapt to the changing markets, employ high-frequency trades (HFTs), and implement automation tools that can be used for a myriad of reasons. Technology automation can also help reduce overall operational costs, enhance scalability of a fund, and improve overall fund performance.
Traditional financial models are still at the core of many hedge funds, but the use of technology should not be ignored. Building a robust tech stack can not only help your fund stay secure and compliant, but also stay competitive with other funds by shaving tenths of a second off lucrative trades and other strategic moves that can make you and your clients more profitable. Thrive offers a hedge fund-focused IT approach that takes advantage of its Hybrid Cloud, allowing funds to rapidly access information while maintaining regulatory compliance to ensure all trades and other financial strategies are done properly.
Another critical aspect of building a successful IT stack is having 24/7 support to mitigate risk and ensure agility against bad actors trying to breach your network. Making sure that your clients’ data and your trade secrets are safe is critical for the continued success of your fund. Data leaks open a fund up to regulatory infractions, massive fines, and other potential consequences that can cost a lot of time and money to clean up. Allocating resources to a disaster recovery plan helps minimize data loss and provides fast, automated recovery of critical systems for protection against events that can devastate normal business operations while meeting challenging Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs).
