May 25 2017 | 11:09pm ET

Risk management software specialist Ferential Systems has become the newest sponsor of The New York Hedge Fund Roundtable (NYHFR).

The company provides risk management software for fixed income, foreign exchange, and derivative instruments. Its flagship product, Pyramid, is a real-time, front-to-back trade processing and portfolio risk decomposition suite, NYHFR said in a statement. Large banks, brokerage firms, and insurance companies utilize Ferential’s products to build valuation curves, navigate negative rate environments and evaluate hedge relationships. 

“Ferential Systems understands the importance of keeping the alternative investment industry abreast of the topics and issues that are most important to its members, particularly as the industry deals with ongoing regulatory changes,” said Adam Weinstein, president of the New York Hedge Fund Roundtable in the statement. “We look forward to partnering with them.

“We are eager to contribute our knowledge and experience in risk management to the Roundtable community,” added John Dukich, Ferential’s founder and CEO. “In the chaotic investment environment we face, model building and risk targeting are underappreciated investment tools [on which] we can help shed light.”

The New York Hedge Fund Roundtable is a non-profit organization committed to promoting education and best practices in the hedge fund industry. Membership consists of investors, fund managers and other industry professionals who regularly meet to discuss current issues within the industry, exchange ideas and connect with peers.
