Northern Trust has integrated BarraOne with its operations platform to strengthen predictive risk analytics and reporting across asset classes, including derivatives.
The integration of BarraOne’s multi-asset class portfolio risk service with Northern Trust’s custody, accounting, fund administration and collateral management platform provides a seamless view of risk and compliance information for clients including investment managers, pension funds, insurance companies, family offices and other asset owners.
Using Northern Trust’s single, integrated risk portal, clients can apply the full spectrum of risk models and stress-testing to generate predictive risk reports that can be used to adjust strategies, maintain investment policy compliance or meet regulatory requirements.
“Our integrated tools can provide insights across multiple risk categories, such as dedicated credit models, value-at-risk models, stress and scenario tests, and exposure analysis,” says Ian Castledine, global head of investment risk product for Northern Trust. “The key, however, is to distil these vast amounts of data into meaningful information using a robust risk framework. Northern Trust institutional clients can create targeted reports to meet a variety of risk management needs, and access them through our flexible web portal, Passport, and its analytical dashboards or by using our Data Direct tool for extracting into other formats.”
