Are your risk managers bogged down in spreadsheets spending more time in data management rather than risk management? Is your front office system good for the traders but falling short of risk management requirements? Are you looking to understand trends over time or easily drill down into more dynamic risk reports?
The areas we help Hedge Funds and Asset Managers:
- Integrate risk from multiple systems
- Slice and Dice data to create ad-hoc reports
- Model curves the way you want and feed them into calculations
- Integrate models written in languages you work in (Python, R, Java, C#, etc)
- Enable intra-day, on-demand, ahead-of-time risk computation and reporting
Go beyond the “Risk Analytics” locked inside traditional trading systems

- Liberate your risk intelligence and access it any time, anywhere
- Reduce / eliminate manual processes
- Reduce costs in risk pricing and reporting
- Integrate with your existing systems and get more from you risk engines
