Welcome to the end to end trade-chain™ technology for alternatives

Award winning MATware is an electronic order processing framework which normalises the unstructured nature of alternative investments. It connects investors to counter parties to increase portfolio control and reduce operational risk.

Using trade-chain™ processing, MATware enables all internal and external parties to participate electronically throughout the investment life cycle (investors, administrators, managers, custodians, treasury operations). This means your operations are more efficient and the information you have, more accurate.

Your oversight requirements are addressed by MATware’s expert business engine which forces timely and accurate data. It generates sophisticated analyses dynamically and transforms data effectively for use by alternatives investors and their systems.

Who uses MATware’s trade-chain™ and why?

Custodian

“The lengthy transaction process was standardised and managed seamlessly across the global operation. The same AuM was managed with over 50% less staff compared with others in the industry.”

Investment advisor

“Because trade completion data is available in real time, and the trade terms are held in a way that can be analysed across holdings, the reports being produced are second to none.”

Fund investor

“Timely, comprehensive and secure data delivers position level liquidity-based analysis of all underlying funds for a more complete risk picture.”

Family office

``A single electronic platform to consolidate all portfolios and cash holdings in one place means that the focus is now on critical overview and cutting-edge transactional capabilities.``

Transfer agent

“The paper based transaction process is an overhead for which transfer agents carry great risk and receive little reward. Electronic trade data capture addresses this imbalance.”

As industry experts, we have assisted institutional as well as more specialised clients with their requirements.

Trade-chain™ straight through processing

The foundation of MATware is an end to end transaction framework which powers functionality and analyses that are unmatched in the alternative investments industry.

SHARING A PROCESS

All participants in an alternatives transaction can connect into the life cycle of that transaction.

SUPPORTING INDUSTRY PRACTICES

They connect at the point at which each is responsible for the real-world data and process of the contract. The processes are thereby kept within legal and regulatory boundaries.

POWERING THE INDUSTRY

Yet the data, and processes, may be shared with all authorised participants along the full life cycle of the transaction.
