The Importance of Technology Education for Hedge Funds
Here at Eze Castle, we believe knowledge is power.
Having an understanding of your firm’s technology needs will take you far, particularly when it comes to satisfying increasingly technology-savvy investors. But gaining that knowledge can sometimes be a challenge for fund employees who are pressed for time and busy focusing on strategic goals.
We’ve made it our mission to be a constant source of information for our hedge fund clients and partners - our Hedge IT blog is a prime example! In addition to our wealth of blog posts, we have a dedicated Knowledge Center devoted entirely to helping educate investment professionals on what’s new and exciting in hedge fund technology. Below are a few of our most popular knowledge centers, easily configured by category to help you find exactly the information you’re looking for.
Are you looking to launch a hedge fund? It can be a complicated process – we know. Our #1 Knowledge Center is designed to walk you through the launch process and ensure you don’t leave any stone unturned. With so much to think about - from real estate and operational infrastructure to marketing and technology – we’ve compiled a variety of resources to help you get your firm off the ground successfully.
Before your launch (or even after), you may decide managing your own IT is not feasible. Instead, you may opt to leverage technology outsourcing as part of your operational strategy, allowing a third-party to take over and handle day-to-day IT functions and you to focus on your core business efforts.
There are a variety of outsourcing options available to firms, including cloud computing and managed services, colocation, staffing and more. Read up on outsourcing to see which of these options suits your firm’s unique needs.
In 2011, we saw a significant number of hedge funds turn to the cloud to meet their technology requirements. For startup funds, especially, the cloud offers an intriguing model. We have deep experience in helping firms leverage the cloud and have a variety of resources available detailing its benefits, challenges and more.
One of the most important aspects of technology your investors will want to see is a disaster recovery and business continuity plan. With the potential for a disaster to strike at any minute, you need to ensure your firm is prepared to remain operational no matter what the disruption. View our complete list of resources on DR and BCP so you'll be prepared if disaster strikes.
