Transcript of "Cost Reducing Strategies for Hedge Funds"

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