Mcube Investment Technologies announces launch of AlphaEngineŽ 2.0 , September 01, 2004

Mcube Investment Technologies, LLC (www.mcubeit.com) announced the launch and production release of AlphaEngineŽ 2.0– Mcube’s flagship technology product that brings state-of-the-art investment management practice to the investors’ desktop.

AlphaEngineŽ is a web-based software that helps make all portfolio decisions using an informed and structured approach. It allows any investor or researcher (pension fund, endowment, foundations, central bank, investment bank research group, fund-of-fund or hedge fund) to evaluate a broad range of investment strategies for any asset class and use these strategies to guide ongoing portfolio decisions (e.g., tactical asset allocation, style, regional and currency allocation, manager allocations, futures across stocks, bonds, cash, currency and commodities). In addition, clients can customize analyses to their specific portfolio structure, benchmarks and policy constraints. The net impact to most funds is often higher returns, better governance and risk management, and operating cost savings.

Commenting on the release, Dr Srinivas (Benne) Bette, Chief Technology Officer said, “AlphaEngineŽ is a complete web-application, which combines sophisticated mathematical computations and rule engines along with human-engineered intuitive and easy-to-use user interface. The current version (2.0) incorporates functionality, innovative analytics and investment management concepts that are the product of many years of Mcube’s research effort. We chose to build this technology using the .NET platform and we are pleased with the outcome. Our technology team in Plano, Texas and Bengaluru, India has worked seamlessly and using innovative processes have created tremendous value by delivering a sophisticated product in record time.” Sanjay Muralidhar, Chief Executive Officer added, “The overwhelming positive response we have received from clients bears testimony to the skill of our entire technology team, who have built an extremely intuitive software product to deal with the multi-faceted area of portfolio management. AlphaEngineŽ is a combination of deep domain expertise and cutting edge technology to facilitate the new imperative of informed decision making, a key challenge in managing complex portfolios.”

The application is offered as a hosted service enabling clients to use the technology right away with no new infrastructure on their side. Mcube hosts the application at Global Network Services.
