Sciens Offers Clients New Portfolio Management Tool

Nov 12 2012 | 12:41pm ET

Sciens Capital Management's alternative investments unit has unveiled a new risk-management and portfolio-analysis product for clients.

Sciens Alternative Investments said the Sciens Managed Account Risk Technologies—SMART, in short—offers "interactive risk analytics and portfolio construction." The system gives Sciens clients a window into their hedge fund portfolios and fund exposures on Sciens' managed-account platform.

SMART was created "in response to a growing desire among institutional investors to manage hedge fund investments in the same way as their traditional equity/bond portfolios," John Godden, head of that platform, said.
