Cost Reducing Strategies for Hedge Funds Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Strategies for Optimizing Operations and Reducing Costs
  • 2. Six Ways to Reduce Costs
    Virtualization
    Smart Purchasing
    Market Data
    Telecommunications
    Broker Execution Costs
    Disaster Recovery andData Protection
  • 3. 1. Virtualization
    Combine multiple servers
    Increases floor space
    Reduces power/cooling expenses and hardware/software costs
    VMware: leading provider of virtualization technology
    Save 23 – 48% on hardware and systems integration and 40 – 72% on operational costs
  • 4. 2. Smart Purchasing
    Purchase multi-year software licensing
    Such as anti-virus and backup software
    Purchase hardware in bulk
    Take advantage of vendor relationships
    Rebates and special incentives
    Evaluate functionality of all hardware and software
  • 5. 3. Market Data
    Evaluate user needs and functionality
    Consider alternative market data providers
    For example: Thomson Reuter’s Market Data System (RMDS) instead of Bloomberg
  • 6. 4. Telecommunications
    Ask your technology provider to identify areas for cost-savings
    Consider WAN Optimization or similar technology solutions
  • 7. 5. Reduce Broker Execution Costs
    Research various brokers for cost differentials and conduct a cost-benefit analysis
    Agency desks are typically much less expensive and broker neutral, which enables firms to find value and lower execution costs, as well as divert more share/value to these agency desks to help reduce costs.
    Negotiate a lower soft dollar cost for research payments to help reduce overall execution costs through discounted research costs.
    Leverage DMA platforms and algorithm tools, which are typically associated with lower per share trade cost and better execution.
  • 8. 6. Disaster Recovery and Data Protection
    Consider taking a phased approach to data protection
    Evaluate critical business areas first and consider eliminating DR capabilities from less critical applications
