DSTi Integrates HiRisk with HiPerformance and HiReporting

London – DST International (DSTi) announced today that it has begun integrating HiRisk with HiPerformance and HiReporting into a comprehensive risk, performance and reporting solution for global investment managers and institutional investors. This will be the first product on the market to combine specialist risk and specialist performance applications into
a single coherent solution.

The work to integrate HiRisk (formerly known as Askari’s truView), a sophisticated buy-side risk management solution, follows the company’s purchase by DSTi in February 2003. HiRisk extends and completes DSTi’s product offering for front, middle and back office capabilities for leading investment managers and institutional investors. In the next version, DSTi will develop standard interfaces between HiRisk and the OpenDataWarehouse (ODW) the platform for HiPerformance and HiReporting. These interfaces will support fully integrated risk and performance reporting for investment managers and institutional investors across a complete spectrum of multi-asset class holdings
globally. The components of the modular solution will continue to be available individually on a best-of-breed basis.

"The integration of HiRisk with HiPerformance and HiReporting, all driven by a single, consistent, central data platform in HiPlatform’s OpenDataWarehouse, is a natural extension of DSTi’s offerings for a complete front and middle office solution," said Mike Winn, DSTi’s group managing director. "Having a fully integrated multi-asset class risk and performance solution using consistent methodologies, models, and data represents a unique capability unmatched in the market."

Kim Holloway, DSTi’s global head of sales added, "Because all of these value-added applications are integrated through a common central data repository in ODW, integrating the solution with other DSTi applications such as HiInvest and HiPortfolio is seamless and easy for clients."

After the initial integration, DSTi’s roadmap calls for further direct connectivity with HiInvest to provide portfolio managers and traders dynamic portfolio risk and performance what-if analysis, and portfolio construction for the front office. Standard interfaces will also be developed between HiData to leverage this tool’s ability to centrally access, manage and scrub market data from multiple vendors for the risk and performance solution. In addition,
links between HiRisk and HiCompliance will be established for complete risk compliance checking.
