There are obvious economic benefits to using Hazeltree, but many managers really enjoy the operational efficiency which translates into human capital efficiency and/or scalability.

As Basel III starts to have an impact on the relationship funds have with their counterparts. HazelTree has built an application which clients use to proactively manage their counterparty relationships in an ongoing basis. HazelTree’s clients are typically large, complex and sophisticated therefore each and every client has a bespoke relationship with each and every counterpart. Our clients understand that you cannot compare a US$ 100mln fund’s relationship with its counterpart to that of a US$ 20bln fund, and even if two funds are the same size their strategy would mean a completely different relationship with their counterpart. This is why we uniquely designed our system to facilitate a conversation based on the actual relationship our client has with their counterparts and then document and process that information into our wallet and scorecard system. This gives them a true perspective on their counterparty relationships and gains a more accurate picture of their relationship with each and every counterpart. Our clients understand that using benchmarked information simply does not work for larger sophisticated investors.
