RIMES SmartFiles streamline and simplify the use of multiple sources of proprietary data, combining data servicing, integration and quality assurance. BarraOne users will have access to the entire range of global and local benchmarks available on the RIMES platform, covering equities, fixed income, commodities, and Islamic indices.
The research, creation, updating, validation and delivery of the data files will be carried out by RIMES. All the required data sources will be integrated in BarraOne, ready to be used via Barra PartnerLink, so that users will not have to experience any operational efforts to check data feeds or manage queries with suppliers.
BarraOne is provided by MSCI Barra, whose products include indices and portfolio risk and performance analytics for use in managing equity, fixed income and multi-asset class portfolios.
Christian Fauvelais, Chief Executive Officer and Co-President of RIMES Technologies commented: âWe are delighted to make SmartFiles available on BarraOne. Investors will now be able to combine BarraOneâs leading analytics with RIMESâ extensive benchmark coverage to support their entire investment processâ.
Roveen Bhansali, Managing Director and Head of the Analytics Business at MSCI Barra, said: âIntegrating RIMES data into BarraOne shows our continued commitment to provide our clients with a deep set of high-quality data essential for portfolio analysis. Both Risk and Performance Attribution clients will benefit from the robust set of local market indices now available directly in BarraOne from RIMESâ.
