Imagine Software, a provider of real-time portfolio and risk management solutions worldwide, has launched a risk aggregation platform.
The Imagine Risk Aggregator, which has already been adopted by SkyBridge Capital, helps all those investing across multiple funds and asset classes around the globe achieve greater transparency into investments, access more meaningful risk analyses, and foster increased investor confidence in risk exposure data.
SkyBridge Capital is a global research driven alternative investment firm with approximately USD6.6bn in total assets under advisement or management as of 31 August.
“We are pleased that SkyBridge Capital selected the Imagine Risk Aggregator to provide advanced risk analytics and reporting,” says Lance Smith, chief executive of Imagine Software. “SkyBridge Capital is well known in the fund of funds industry, so we are honoured by their validation of our proven methodologies for risk aggregation.”
Ray Nolte, managing partner and chief investment officer at SkyBridge, says: “When we first heard that Imagine was building a new and enhanced risk aggregation platform, we immediately reached out to the firm. After evaluating the offering, as well as a few other alternatives, we determined that the Imagine Risk Aggregator was a superior solution to meet our standards.”
By independently sourcing information from third parties, verifying, and normalizing the position level data that is typically not accessible by investors, then aggregating the data, and applying common sets of risk analytics and risk scenarios, the Imagine Risk Aggregator maintains fund confidentiality while providing visibility to investors at the summary level.
Included in the Imagine Risk Aggregator are interactive data visualisation dashboards with drill down functionality, as well as a full suite of detailed, board-quality reporting features. Together, these capabilities empower users to analyse a wide variety of factors including market values, exposures, sensitivities, strategies and sub-strategies, scenarios, Betas, stress tests, and VaR. Also available is a dynamic “what if” tool that enables users to see the immediate risk implications of potential changes to their investment allocations.
