Macro Risk Advisors Unveils Systemic Risk Dashboard

Oct 11 2010 | 12:35pm ET

New York-based Macro Risk Advisors, an equity derivatives strategy and execution broker dealer, today launched its Systemic Risk Dashboard. The dashboard is designed to monitor cross-asset risk premiums in order to help institutional investors manage portfolio uncertainty and optimize investment performance.
 
“A defining lesson of the financial crisis has been the high level of asset price correlation in times of macro uncertainty,” said Dean Curnutt, CEO of MRA.  “Our risk dashboard provides institutional investors with a powerful tool that identifies the linkages across asset classes, puts risk premiums in historical context, and serves as a guide post for prudent portfolio risk management.” 
 
The risk dashboard is the latest in a series of strategic initiatives undertaken by MRA focused on helping institutional clients understand and manage risk. 

“Today’s challenging investment climate is characterized by exceptionally high asset correlations and systemic risk.  Our dashboard helps us quickly frame the risk landscape across asset classes so we can offer more valuable advice to our institutional clients,” said Curnutt.
