Rydex Taps SunGard's Asset Arena


Rydex Investments has turned to SunGard's Asset Arena investment accounting solution to help with fund accounting, reporting and data consolidation. This comes as Rydex is being integrated with Security Global Investors.

Rockville, Maryland-based Rydex was purchased by Security Benefit in a deal that closed in January of last year. In January 2009, the Topeka, Kansas-based insurer announced the integration of Rydex into its other asset management business, Security Global Investors.

"Rydex's integration with Security Global Investors has presented an opportunity to streamline our operational infrastructure as we combine two distinct yet complementary fund complexes," said Joseph Arruda, senior vice president of Rydex Investments.
