Building Alternative Strategies with a Flexible Risk Management System

Client Type:

Hedge Fund

Size:

Mid-Size


The Need

A mid-size hedge fund was in search of a more robust and flexible enterprise risk management system to handle their sophisticated alternative strategies with timely and responsive risk analytics interoperable with their existing technology stack.

The Challenge

Our client was frustrated with their black-box risk system due to missing granular details of stress test sensitivities, unreliable batch processing and slow risk calculations.

The Solution

Axioma RiskTM offered our client the flexibility to calculate their desired risk analytics using a wide range of risk measurement tools including ‘on-the fly’ transitive stress tests, pre-trade ‘what-if’ analyses and calibration of market risk for their merger arbitrage strategies. Using the business intelligence dashboards, our client was able to visualize their risk drivers to help them make timely adjustments and change their investment outcomes.

As an existing user of the Axioma Portfolio OptimizerTM with backtesting capabilities, Axioma Portfolio AnalyticsTM and Axioma Risk Model MachineTM, our client was able to connect their entire investment technology stack from front-to-back, including OPERA regulatory reporting, via our APIs to achieve consistency and interoperability across their investment workflow.
