Axioma Hires Nguyen as Head of Regulatory and Risk Reporting

Oct 5 2016 | 9:25pm ET

Fresh off the release of new versions of its analytics and risk modeling applications, Axioma has appointed Bao Chau Nguyen as head of regulatory & risk reporting. 

Nguyen has operational responsibility for the risk and regulatory reporting business that Axioma agreed to acquire from global back-office investment services provider ConceptONE in March. The position is new, according to a statement from the company.

In her role, Nguyen will oversee the client service teams in Axioma’s regulatory and risk reporting units, with responsibility for a growing global client base. She will report to Ian Webster, Axioma’s COO, and will be based in the firm’s global headquarters in New York.

Nguyen most recently served as global alternative investment operations director for Confluence Technologies. Beforehand, she was vice president of operations for Data Agent, and worked on the implementation of risk management systems RiskMetrics and Barra at MSCI. 

“Axioma is on a rapid growth trajectory, and a key component of this is the acquisition of ConceptONE’s risk and regulatory reporting units, which has enabled us to offer clients a consistent view of regulatory and internal risks from front to middle to back office,” said Webster. “Bao will play an important role in helping scale our regulatory and risk reporting capabilities to answer market demand for these services.”

Founded in 1998 and headquartered in New York, Axioma offers a suite of integrated portfolio construction, analytics, risk modeling and optimization tools that help clients create and model portfolios and obtain views of risk across the enterprise and multiple asset classes.
