BlueCrest Looks to Calypso for Front-Office Support

London-based BlueCrest Capital set to roll out Calypso's front-office functionality.

London-based hedge fund group BlueCrest Capital Management, with approximately $33 billion under management, has chosen Calypso's Front Office platform to support its funds.

According to San Francisco-based Calypso, its integrated front-office offering will support BlueCrest's order management, trade capture, lifecycle management, real-time position management, and risk management functions.

Products supported include interest-rate derivatives, bonds, repos, FX, equities, equity derivatives, credit, commodities, cash and loans; trades will be fed into Calypso from more than a dozen external trading platforms.

BlueCrest has been a Calypso client since 2008 when it adopted Calypso's Middle Office functionality. BlueCrest partnered with Calypso to help develop and build the vendor's Cross Asset P&L functionality, which has since become the backbone of Calypso's buy-side offering.
