LONDON, May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Alphakinetic, a leading provider of flexible and robust fund management software to the investment management industry, today announced that CloudRisk Ltd., an independent provider of valuations and risk analysis focusing on structured and exotic derivative transactions, selected Alphakinetic's Glide Fund Manager's cloud tools for its client base of investment and trading organisations.

CloudRisk chose Alphakinetic's Glide cloud tools to help support CloudRisk's operating platform for its risk and valuation services for its clients.
"As a modeling company, we often need to integrate with a third-party system, in order to obtain customer positions, market data and to upload our valuation results," said Plamen Neykov, CEO of CloudRisk. "Compared with other systems, Alphakinetic is very intuitive, easy to master and its vocabulary is native to the domain. As a result, we experienced a greatly shortened learning curve and out productivity in working with Alphakinetic's cloud tools have proven to be much better compared to other third-party applications and systems."
Neykov added that the Alphakinetic cloud tools provided greater flexibility, scalability, modularity, real-time interaction and offered more flexibility and customization in reporting valuation results for CloudRisk clients.
Commented Jon Hodges, Co-Founder of Alphakinetic, "We are excited that CloudRisk selected Glide cloud tools to deliver its services to their clients.
