Oct 13, 2009 (03:10 AM EDT)

MELBOURNE, Australia, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- FMO, the portfolio management system for hedge funds with industry leading reporting and attribution analysis, announced a new release of the FMO system today. The main focus of this release is improved real-time and historic reporting of fund performance across multiple prime brokers and custodians-for better trading decisions, to manage counterparty risk, and to give external clients more transparency.

Paul Lemphers, General Manager of FMO, commented: "The financial crisis has demanded that Fund Managers need the ability to analyse their performance quickly and accurately. We have worked closely with clients to help them gain deeper insight into the performance of their investments by focussing on the sources of growth over a period of time. All portfolio management systems are able to tell you what a fund's Net Asset Value (NAV) and P&L is. FMO is able to tell you the how - how did I gain this alpha and what parts of my portfolio generated it. This helps fund managers make better investing decisions and gives better transparency to investors."

Avis Tang, Chief Operating Officer at Blue Pool Capital, Hong Kong, and FMO client since 2006 commented: "FMO is an easy to use system with great support that has helped us manage assets with multiple counterparties, streamline our day to day operations and improve our fund reporting". Blue Pool Capital Ltd. is a Hong Kong based investment advisory firm. Blue Pool Capital has two clients: a family office and Absolute Partners Management, the manager of the Absolute Partners Fund. Absolute Partners Fund is an Asia ex-Japan long-short equity fund that launched in November 2004.

About FMO

FMO ( HASH(0x12d3140) ) is a new generation portfolio management system that provides users with an integrated portfolio management system and fund accounting system. FMO recognizes that post the global financial crisis hedge funds desire to better understand performance, attribution, volatility and counterparty risk, with an integrated view across multiple prime brokers, custodians, markets and securities; while at the same time focusing on fund performance, not software. FMO's unique ability to deliver industry-leading reporting with an entirely online solution meets this challenge.

The FMO portfolio management system was originally developed for the Portland House Group, a leading private investment firm based in Australia.
