Liquid Holdings Releases White Paper on SaaS Technology and Its Ability to Drive Hedge Fund Performance and Credibility

NEW YORK, Oct. 15, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Institutional credibility is an ever-present term in the alternative investment community. While traditionally focused on pedigree and performance, institutional credibility now encompasses real-time, scalable infrastructure which delivers active and repeatable controls. The definition of 'credible' is changing. That's one key finding from the latest white paper Driving Hedge Fund Growth and Institutional Credibility: An Introduction to the 5 S's of SaaS from Liquid Holdings Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:LIQD), a provider of cloud-based investment management solutions for the financial community.

According to the white paper, gaining institutional credibility from the investor lens requires hedge fund managers to demonstrate competency along a wider spectrum of technology and fund management. This shift shines a light on purpose-built SaaS models as they provide greater flexibility to optimize day-to-day fund management and the increasingly complex management of investor relations. The white paper details the 5 S's of SaaS - Speed, Scale, Service, Syndication and Substantiation – and their impact on a hedge fund manager's drive for growth and credibility.

"The asset management industry continues to transform through the potent mix of new laws, more competition, calls for greater transparency, and diminishing fee models. While pedigree and performance are still key, technology remains the single differentiator and common denominator amidst these challenges," said Robert O'Boyle, EVP of Sales and Marketing of Liquid Holdings. "The right technology can be an efficient solution for fund optimization that not only enables alpha in a fragmented environment but demonstrates the capabilities necessary for more collaboration with investors and, ultimately, smarter relationship management that encourages both retention and runway."
