LONDON: Hedge fund technology specialist Comada is pleased to announce that it has won the award for Leading Fund of Fund Technology Provider from prestigious hedge fund trade magazine The Hedge Fund Journal. The award was given in recognition of Comada’s ongoing success with the deployment of its M.A.T. Share product for funds of funds.
Said Rupert Vaughan Williams, co-founder of Comada: “We are very pleased to receive recognition for M.A.T. Share, which continues to build on its transaction level architecture to address specific challenges regarding scalability and transparency in the fund of hedge funds industry. The past few years have highlighted our ability to address the liquidity management and operational challenges faced by this industry, providing a clear picture for those who manage hedge fund portfolios, and allowing them to deliver meaningful reporting to their clients.”
M.A.T. Share is a dynamic, web-based application for funds of hedge funds, distinguished by its ability to connect funds of funds with hedge fund administrators and custodians.
