Long Short Equity Funds

Our microservices architecture and our single tenant deployment model ensures that the LightPoint platform provides a tailor-made solution for Long Short Equity funds.  Our operations support and technology teams can help firms move off existing legacy technology and onto a state-of-the-art institutional quality platform.  We can provide long short equity funds with more cost-effective market data solutions that are tailored to their needs, and advanced OEMS and PMS capabilities for order execution and management. Our high-touch onboarding team can help limit the problems associated with transitioning to a new system. We have invested in technology to automate the loading of trade history, and our ability to integrate with other systems eliminates the headaches that are typically associated with conversions. 

Multi-Manager Funds

Our software was originally designed to support businesses with multiple funds with multiple accounts, each managed by independent portfolio managers who have their own strategies and require their own customized solution. Our microservices architecture and our single tenant deployment model allows LightPoint  to provide a system that can meet these needs at a reasonable cost. Our operations support and technology teams can help multi-manager funds migrate from existing fragmented vendor solutions and onto a state-of-the-art institutional quality platform. 

Credit Funds

Our valuations engine is easy to extend for any custom OTC valuation needs. Our operations support and technology teams can help credit funds migrate from fragmented legacy technology and spreadsheets onto a state-of-the-art institutional quality platform. Our high-touch onboarding team will eliminate the headaches that are typically associated with conversions. 

Quantitative Funds

Our microservices architecture and our single tenant deployment model allow LightPoint to provide an environment that can scale to meet a quantitative hedge fund’s needs to handle large and widely  fluctuating trade volumes.  Each fund’s instance can be sized according to their individual needs on our cloud. Our ability to provide APIs ensures that our system can easily integrate with the custom systems that are often present at these funds.  Our operations support and technology teams can help Quant Funds migrate from existing in-house technology and spreadsheets that are often built for compliance and order management and move onto a state-of-the-art institutional quality platform. 

Outsourced Trading Desks

Outsourced trading desks can benefit by white labeling our mobile and browser-based trade tickets for portfolio managers who want to use their trading desk for execution. They can also offer our white labeled portfolio management software to their portfolio managers to monitor their positions and P&L. In addition, they can use our Market Data Platform to source cost-effective market data that can be redistributed to the portfolio managers at a minimal cost. Their outsourced trading desks can benefit from the Advanced EMS capabilities that are offered through out partnership with InfoReach, as well as our portfolio management and  accounting capabilities.

Operations Service Companies

Our microservices architecture allows the LightPoint platform to provide a highly flexible system that can be used to efficiently automate the middle and back-office operations for any fund. Single tenancy allows each software instance to be tailored to a customer’s unique needs, allowing the operations services company to fit the way the customer works rather than the other way around. This allows organizations to successfully automate larger clients that require custom interfaces, workflows, and functionality.

Fund Administrators

Our microservices architecture and our single tenant deployment model allow the LightPoint platform to provide a complete set of services for a fund administrator. They can use our OTC pricing services to provide an independent valuation for their client’s OTC products, and our portfolio accounting and investor accounting from HWM can provide a complete accounting solution that fund administrators can use to provide a complete book of record accounting service for their clients.  They can use our risk capabilities to provide a shadow VaR service for their clients and they can white label our EMS, OMS and portfolio management, and portfolio accounting services to provide their clients with outsourced middle and back-office services to grow their businesses and generate additional revenue.
