New York – DST International (DSTi) – the leading provider of business solutions for the investment management industry - announced today that the
Missouri State Employees' Retirement System (MOSERS) has signed for HiRisk, DSTi’s comprehensive risk management solution. MOSERS will use HiRisk for their diverse portfolio of investments that includes equity, fixed income, and alternative investments. MOSERS has chosen to outsource all aspects of operating HiRisk to DSTi by selecting the ASP service.
Rick Dahl, MOSERS’ chief investment officer, said, "We chose DSTi because of the flexibility of the HiRisk system, the capabilities of the human capital at the firm coupled with their strong relationships with leading edge risk practitioners outside the firm and the track record of DSTi to provide solutions to other significantly complex investment management organizations with a broad array of investment similar to MOSERS. The HiRisk system is a tool that will allow us to improve risk measurement on behalf of our pensioners in a highly disciplined and quantitative manner across our entire portfolio of investments including, public and private equity, nominal bonds, inflation indexed bonds, credit spreads, currencies, commodities and real estate."
Pamela Pecs Cytron, DSTi’s executive vice president said, "MOSERS is the latest of a rapidly growing number of institutions who have made HiRisk their solution of choice. HiRisk is the leading risk and analytics
solution in North America with an extensive client list that includes
Ontario Teachers Fund and Alberta Investment Management. HiRisk is a
powerful tool that can easily manage MOSERS’ current investments and has
the potential to grow with them."
