Agio Launches SkySuite

Agio SkySuite provides firms with an enterprise-class, scalable package of services, backed with outstanding client service, performance guarantees, and unrivaled cost savings.

NEW YORK, NY – February 28, 2012 – As the provider of superior managed IT services to the world’s premier hedge funds, Agio Technology introduces SkySuite – its enterprise-class, fully integrated service package for emerging hedge funds. Managed from Agio’s Enterprise Services Center, SkySuite includes Hosted Email, Email and Web Defense, Compliance Archiving, Backup, Disaster Recovery and FileShare.

Aside from the full array of hedge fund startup services, Agio SkySuite offers clients four distinct advantages – ESP, Performance Guarantees, Zero Startup Costs, and Infinite Scalability.

Agio ESP (Enterprise Service Platform): Created by Agio engineers, ESP provides emerging funds a level of client service and transparency only available to large, global firms. With the ESP Dashboard, clients see what we see in real-time to access precisely what Agio engineers are monitoring and working on in their environment.

Performance Guarantees: Agio is so confident our dedicated client service teams will provide outstanding client service, we pledge it with a no excuses guarantee. For every month Agio fails to meet a service commitment to a client, we will credit the customer with an additional month of service at no charge. End of story.

Zero Startup Costs: Starting a new fund can require significant capital outlays, but Agio believes that having a world-class IT package need not be one of them. Only Agio offers emerging funds a zero startup cost option.

Infinite Scalability: Agio SkySuite’s technology environment can scale up as quickly and seamlessly as the client, without any interruption or the risks that come with having to change IT providers. Founded by senior managers servicing many of the largest and most operationally complex investment advisory firms, Agio has the people, processes and tools to provide an exceptional end-user experience from day one.

In making the announcement today, Bart R. McDonough, Founder and CEO of Agio Technology, said: “Our pre-launch conversations with Prime Brokers and other advisors to emerging funds have been overwhelmingly positive. No other firm offers zero startup costs and service guarantees, with the capability to scale as the funds grow in both size and complexity. Our enterprise background, investment in ESP, and focus on customer service provides a fresh, unique offering to meet the demands of the emerging fund manager.”
