  • Testimonial

    Nectar Capital undertook a broad anlaysis of what was currently available in the market place and we selected Arbor FS for a number of reasons. Primarily, being an Alpha generative organisation we liked Arbor’s ability to present our portfolio in several ways, including fully customisable views for each user. Such functionality allows our portfolio managers to drill down on relevant exposures in the portfolio and helps them make optimal investment decisions.
    From an operations perspective Arbor automates many of our processes and procedures, therefore reduces the time and cost of our middle and back-office undertakings. We liked the platform’s ability to pull data from our Custodian and highlight differences that may exist. We liked the ability to extract historic trade information in a meaningful manner, and we liked the ability to adjust many of the variables in the system to our internal preferences. Additionally the interaction and file upload to our Administrator is fully automated.
    Finally, we believed (and still believe) Arbor to be a client focused business with a client focused structure. These are business oriented people helping us to facilitate our own successful business.
