Citco Launches Improved Risk and Transparency Offering for Alternative Investment Managers

Nov 30 2016 | 8:15pm ET

Citco has debuted an enhanced version of its risk and transparency toolset that enables clients to monitor and assess risk via a new dashboard interface and customizable suite of analytical tools. 

The new technology is available to Citco clients and other alternative investment firms, according to a statement. It features interactive data visualization dashboards, which can provide exposure and performance attribution drill-downs and deliver tailored analysis of key risk drivers across asset classes, Citco said.  

The platform also includes new tools for stress testing and tailored risk and performance measurements, as well as the ability to produce customized risk assessment reports for portfolio and risk managers, institutional investors, and regulators.

The news comes shortly after Citco’s September launch of its new Waterfall tool that enables private equity firms to more efficiently calculate waterfall payments to limited and general partners. 

“Fund managers, as well as their investors and regulators, are increasingly requiring higher levels of transparency,” said Philip Tham, Head of Risk and Valuation at Citco,  in the statement. “Our risk solution is designed to deliver the type of granular detail and analytical capabilities that will help our clients more efficiently and effectively manage risk.”

Tracing its roots to the founding of a civil law notary practice in 1948, The Citco Group of Companies is a worldwide network of independent financial service companies serving the world's elite hedge funds, private equity and real estate firms, institutional banks, Global 1000 companies and high net worth individuals. The group offers hedge fund administration, custody and fund trading, financial products and corporate and trust planning solutions.  It has more than $995 billion in AuA, $625 billion of which is hedge fund assets and $220 billion is private equity and real estate.
