Kiodex will be used in Aislingís Singapore and Geneva offices.

Kiodex provides commodity-specific models and analytics that are preconfigured to handle the nuances specific to commodities.Ē

Ben Jackson, chief operating officer of SunGardís Kiodex business unit, said, ďKiodex helps commodities hedge funds like Aisling to implement best practice risk management by providing robust, commodity-specific pricing models, analytics, and independent market data.Ē
