Quantifi, a leading provider of analytics, trading and risk management solutions
for the global capital markets, today announced that Oracle Capital, a hedge
fund start-up founded by two former Lehman Brothers traders, has selected
Quantifi XL for the pricing and analysis of their structured credit portfolio.

Founded in 2009, Oracle Capital is based in Hong Kong and focuses on fixed
income products, particularly in the areas of credit, fixed income derivatives
and securitization. The initial fund invests in products that reference
corporate credit risk, including cash and synthetic CDOs. As the firm was
starting up, Oracle explored a range of options to fulfill their needs,
including developing an internal solution as well as third-party vendor
solutions. After careful review, Oracle selected Quantifi for its robust
coverage of a wide range of complex instruments.

Leon Hindle, Chief Investment Officer at Oracle Capital, commented, "Valuation
and risk management are key components in everything we do, and it became clear
that Quantifi was the best fit for our business. We have been extremely
impressed with the sophistication and power of their products, as well as their
exceptional support. Quantifi has been instrumental in our drive to swiftly and
efficiently go to market and develop creative trading strategies for our maiden
fund - Oracle Investment Fund - allowing us take full advantage of current
market opportunities."

"I am delighted with Oracle Capital`s decision to select Quantifi. They are a
sophisticated shop founded by two ex-Lehman traders, and we look forward to
working with them and helping support their growth. With our already outstanding
reputation within the hedge fund community, Oracle Capital offers Quantifi the
opportunity to assist a start-up in establishing a footprint in the
marketplace," Rohan Douglas, CEO of Quantifi, commented.

Quantifi XL is an extensive suite of add-in functions for Excel. By utilizing
advanced numerical methods, Quantifi XL can be deployed swiftly and achieves
fast pricing - providing financial institutions with access to sophisticated
pricing and risk analysis of credit products from within Excel.
