AlternativeSoft, which provides investment analytic software, is partnering with Crédit Agricole to give its clients access to one of the world’s oldest alternative investment databases.

For the next 12 months, AlternativeSoft clients will have access to the CASAM CISDM database and indices, which track more than 2,700 hedge funds, 2,170 funds of funds and 480 commodity-trading advisers. Users will be able to use AlternativeSoft’s analytical tools on the CASAM data.

“The partnership with Crédit Agricole will provide our clients a unique opportunity to review the CASAM CISDM database,” Stephan Joehri, chief technology officer of AlternativeSoft. “With our easy-to-use quantitative software application, clients will be able to perform various tasks such as build, optimize and evaluate portfolios, analyze hedge fund by separating its alpha from alternative betas and more.”

CASAM CISDM was established in 1979.

Separately, AlternativeSoft announced the hire of James Upton as head of operations and technical services. Upton joins the firm from Shelby Jennings in London, where he will be based in his new post.
