Cardano implements HedgeSphere in Pension Fund Management

Infonic AG, thought leader in software for investing into funds and alternative assets, has announced successful go-live of its HedgeSphere product at Cardano, a leading provider of advisory and fiduciary asset management services to pension funds and insurance companies.

The HedgeSphere product has been implemented as a core component to Cardano’s pension fund management business, supporting the asset management and advisory life cycle for its client mandates across the full range of investments.

René Villiger, Executive Director at Infonic AG said “From our first contact with the people at Cardano we had a strong feeling that we could really make a difference in implementing HedgeSphere to support Cardano’s growing business. In a context of their focus on both assets and liabilities, very rigid processes and demanding client reporting, we applied our proven experience in the alternative asset industry to their client mandates, across the full set of investments. It was an inspiring implementation and both teams can be very proud of the results.”

David West, Head of Operations at Cardano said “We trust in HedgeSphere for our pension fund management business due to its ability to handle the complexities of Hedge Fund investments while allowing us to have an accurate and holistic view on all investments across the mandates, from traditional assets, right through to more complex OTC derivative positions”.

On the implementation process, Cardano’s Head of Operations continues “The Infonic team are experts in their field, flexible, adaptable and focused on making sure we hit the efficiency targets we set when we embarked on the implementation project. Not only does their HedgeSphere system do exactly what they said it would, but the whole process has been a positive experience.”
