SBI Ven Capital has selected Imagine Software’s ASP service,, for risk and portfolio management.

SBI Ven Capital, a Singapore subsidiary of Japan-based SBI Holdings, is a private equity firm providing growth capital to companies in the mid-market sector in the Asia Pacific region.

Its adoption of Imagine includes both risk and portfolio managers based in Tokyo and Singapore, trading through Shenton Structured Projects, SBI’s public markets proprietary desk.

Its global macro strategy covers a variety of asset classes encompassing bonds, equities, FX, futures and options.

Kaz Makabe, director of Shenton, says: “The key capabilities that make Imagine’s offering so attractive are its flexibility and reliability. Imagine is a one-stop provider for portfolio and risk management that allows us to operate across all asset classes, with reliable support at a reasonable cost. For risky credit bonds, we were impressed with the way Imagine provided us with yield and sensitivity numbers, which varied with each issue’s structure. We are also looking forward to creating our own custom reports for internal as well as investor reporting requirements.”

Steven Harrison, president and chief operating officer at Imagine, says: “SBI is one of the leading private equity firms in the region, having invested in more than 600 companies to date. We are pleased that SBI has recognised the unique value that Imagine provides with its ASP service. Developed and hosted solely by Imagine since 2000, our service provides all of the powerful portfolio and risk management capabilities in one affordable, scalable and rapidly deployable package, along with comprehensive market data sourcing and management.”
