According to Merlin, the firm’s clients now have access to more robust reporting, including measures of VAR, stock-specific risk and overall risk.
“The addition of the Barra data to our multi-prime reporting platform not only strengthens our offering considerably, but also sets a new standard for how clients can analyze, aggregate and gain insight into all of their positions, regardless of asset class,” said Amr Mohamed, Merlin’s co-founder and chief technology officer.
Barra Risk Models and portfolio analytics are used by over 900 clients, including 10 of the largest asset managers, according to MSCI Barra estimates.
