Trends in Attribution evening, hosted by Orfival UK

London - 14 December 2009

Thought leaders from the investment management analytics space gathered last week to discuss ‘Trends in Attribution’ for an evening hosted by Orfival UK in London. Orfival manufactures and sells innovative software for the fund management industry. Its principal product ‘GPMS’ is totally modular; clients can pick and choose applications that suit them. One of the flagship modules is their portfolio performance, risk measurement and attribution application.

“Risk models and risk architecture will be of primary importance to asset managers in 2010, our evening was a very interesting forum to discuss and share ideas around this ever changing and highly topical area”, commented Torquil Warren, Head of Sales UK and Ireland for Orfival UK.

Philippe Gregoire PhD, Head of Product Development at Orfival commented, “We used this forum to gain a view of what key risk exposures the investment community will be facing in the year ahead and how they will be best positioned to prepare for 2010 from a analytics perspective”.

Guests in attendance were in agreement that Fund Managers need new unilateral models and ways of approaching risk in a decentralized market environment.
