Merlin Securities Beefs Up Risk Reporting Tools

Oct 23 2008 | 12:35am ET

Prime brokerage firm Merlin Securities has boosted its reporting capabilities by integrating Barra Risk Model data into its technology platform.

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.
