Village Capital, a Singapore-based long-short hedge fund, has rolled out and is live on Ullink’s XTRAIN post-trade processing platform. According to Paris-based Ullink, this implementation extends the fund’s use of its buy-side-specific execution management system (EMS), XILIX, which now supports a range of post-trade processes, including trade reconciliation, reporting and performance data management.
Village Capital, based in Singapore, focuses primarily on Japanese equities across a number of funds with a variety of strategies, including equity long-short and small to mid-cap equities on a long-only basis. The fund, which has been a Ullink client since 2014 when it implemented the vendor’s XILIX EMS, contracted Ullink to help optimize a number of its mainly manual post-trade processes in order to increase efficiencies and reduce the potential for human error and dependency. It is one of Ullink’s first customers to deploy the new XTRAIN post-trade processing component of the vendor’s XILIX suite.
XTRAIN is a cloud-delivered platform designed to support buy-side post-trade processes immediately following trade execution. It comprises three modules focusing on trade matching, portfolio analytics and reporting, and is designed to integrate with XILIX, although it can also be deployed as a standalone platform alongside other EMSs and order management systems.
