ITG rolls out new hedge fund platform for Asia Pacific

ITG has introduced a new comprehensive hedge fund platform for Asia Pacific.

ITG, a US-based execution broker and research provider, has introduced a new comprehensive hedge fund platform for Asia Pacific.

The new platform will incorporate integrated execution, order as well as position management tools, which have been designed to boost hedge funds’ operational efficiency and costs.

The firm has appointed Phil Chevalier and Gaye Anable, hedge fund platform specialists, for the new proposition. The duo will report to ITG Asia Pacific head of sales Simon Wade.

In their new role, Chevalier will be based in Hong Kong, while Anable will be based in the ITG’s Sydney office.

Chevalier earlier served at Advent Software and Eze Software, where he specialised in portfolio management and order management systems (OMS).

Most recently, Anable served at Bloomberg, where she was responsible for heading the Australian OMS team.

ITG Asia Pacific joint CEO Michael Corcoran commented: “ITG is well known as the leading provider of trading platforms for the long-only fund management community.

“We have used this expertise to integrate our Triton Black execution management system with ITG Position Manager, an order and position management system, and our global ITG Net FIX network. These products, used individually or in combination, help solve operational challenges which hedge funds face.

“As we go live with our first hedge fund clients in Asia this quarter, these hires demonstrate our commitment to delivering and supporting products that improve workflow for Asian and Australian hedge funds in a cost-effective manner.”
