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.

Barra Risk Models and portfolio analytics are used by over 900 clients, including 10 of the largest asset managers, according to MSCI Barra estimates.
