Fortlake Selects SS&C to support fixed income operations

Fortlake Asset Management, a Sydney-based emerging manager, has selected SS&C's Eze Investment Suite to support its investment operations. The manager launched earlier this month and will deliver a range of Australian and international fixed income funds.

"We take a holistic view of fixed-income investments by incorporating overlays, arbitrage strategies, credit opportunities and high-grade bonds," says Christian Baylis, Founder and CIO of Fortlake. "We chose Eze Investment Suite because of its advanced trading and portfolio management capabilities across asset classes. SS&C Eze understood our business and delivered the tools we needed to pursue a variety of fixed income strategies." 

Eze Investment Suite will support Fortlake's trading and portfolio accounting operations, leveraging optimized workflows across the organisation. Fortlake's strategies target fixed income instruments, including domestic bonds, OTC securities, asset-backed securities, and more. Eze Investment Suite will also support trades in G7 interest futures and options, swaptions, forwards and spot trades.

"We are pleased to support Fortlake with an institutional-grade trading infrastructure," says Michael Hutner, General Manager of SS&C Eze. "SS&C Eze is committed to full front-to-back support to managers of all sizes so they can enhance operational efficiency and position for growth."
