Risk Services

The investor community is increasing demand for more transparent and independent risk reporting. Investment complexity continues to grow, as do the demands for more and more risk information from portfolio managers, compliance and risk officers, boards, regulators and, risk aggregators. To meet these varied and growing demands for risk information, asset managers need a system that:

  • Provides comprehensive coverage across asset classes
  • Has powerful stochastic modeling capabilities
  • Generates a full set of risk analytics including exposures, Monte Carlo simulations, sensitivity and stress tests
  • Provides drill-down into the portfolio, such as asset class, geography, manager and line of business, right down to the holding level
  • Provides configurable reporting
  • Is integrated with the financial reporting platform

SS&C GlobeOp’s Risk Services does all of this, plus much more.
