Swiss Capital is using FOFiX as part of its systematic investment process to incorporate both quantitative and qualitative information and to foster decision-making based on risk budgeting principles.
Federico Degen, Partner Investment and Portfolio Management at Swiss Capital Alternative Investments AG, said: "FOFiX is an excellent complement to our in-house analytics and supports the quantitative aspects of our investment process. We reviewed Riskdataâs profiling methodology extensively and tested its directional non-linear factor modelling approach to stress testing and crisis simulation.â
FOFiX is the only forward-looking risk management platform specifically designed to meet the needs of hedge fund investors and has become established as the industry benchmark. It is the first service offering a daily updated view on all market classes - equities, fixed-income, listed and OTC derivatives - giving fund of fund managers easy, interactive and intuitive access to any risk analysis.
Olivier le Marois, CEO of Riskdata, added: "Weâre delighted that one of the most dynamic and demanding Swiss-based managers has chosen FOFiX, a truly comprehensive risk management tool which supports the entire investment process, from manager selection to risk control and portfolio construction, by streamlining risk aggregation. One key aspect of our FOFiX product is that, as an interactive system, rather than an ASP model, all sensitive information is stored within the client environment, while they enjoy the benefits of outsourcing market data aggregation and risk factor production.â
