While order and execution management systems have been ubiquitous in the asset management industry, there has always been an unspoken third element that contributed to investment success: RISK. Liquid introduced the industry’s first OERMSSM (order, execution and risk management system) in 2013 – setting a new standard and incorporating the third, critical element that fund managers need for smarter, faster adjustments and more precise reporting.
The Liquid platform goes a step further, backing mission-critical front-office capabilities with managed services to transform manually intensive end-of-day processes into a seamless experience. Its engineered to allow funds to raise capital at will by agnostic and flexible custody and prime brokerage allocation processing, and trade lifecycle workflows—it puts all your holdings in one place for access all the time, everywhere and in real-time.
Hedge funds of all sizes rely on us to decide what to trade, place the trade, monitor compliance, continuously monitor risks and P&L, automate reporting, and outsource disaster recovery, all in one place.
The Liquid platform allows you to generate dashboard-like reports to achieve fast and meaningful insights into your portfolio results, and to meet investor demands for transparency and institutional credibility. Our set of dashboards and reports include, but are not limited to:
A single view of customizable performance and risk statistics that details P&L, performance and returns by portfolio, and charts key risk measures.
Provides a coherent breakdown of the drivers of P&L movements by portfolio, sector or underlying constituents.
Provides a detailed snapshot of total returns at a user-defined point in time, explaining how strategies performed and what contributed to, or detracted from portfolio performance.
Graphical and tabular representation of the time to liquidate a portfolio with client assumptions driving the analysis.
Determines how a portfolio would perform in a canned or user-defined hypothetical scenario or shock.
Communicates the risk of loss for a given portfolio at a user-defined confidence level and time horizon. Historical, Monte Carlo and Parametric methodologies can be reported and displayed side by side
Series of daily reports detailing the post-trade lifecycle including the reconciliation of cash, trades and positions with counterparties and brokers.
Accurate portfolio and risk analysis are the backbone of everything you do to demonstrate credibility. The people, processes and data driving the analysis need to be great. With Liquid powering your middle-office, it is. Rather than using traditional in-house methods to prepare the front-office for investing, Liquid provides the people, processes and technology you need to stay up, running and in control of your investments so you can concentrate on generating alpha. This includes:

The word “legacy” should apply to DNA, in its complexities and power of transference. It should apply to great leaders—their words of wisdom and future impact down the line. And it should apply to pedigree. But the word “legacy” should not apply to technology utilized for investing and ensuring transparency.
We developed our hedge fund operating system, unencumbered by legacy code, and free from the unnecessary complications of disparate systems to give the alternative asset management community a better way of staying competitive — the modern front-office tools and workflows you need to hit the next water mark backed by co-sourced middle-office services so you can concentrate on investing. Client-developed and born in the cloud, our solutions are the answer to the growing challenges in the asset management industry—because, our solutions grow ahead of the industry.
