StatPro unveils new risk reporting service to meet investor and regulatory demand for transparency

Boston, MA - 1 October 2012

StatPro Group plc (AIM: SOG), a global leader in portfolio analytics and reporting services, is pleased to introduce StatPro Risk Bureau Service. Supporting traditional and alternative investment fund managers, the new service solves the market need for precise, forward looking risk analysis, operational efficiency, and external transparency.

The service specifically addresses evolving industry regulation, including the pending implications of Dodd-Frank Form PF by offering the following analysis:

• Full simulation-based approach to VaR and stress testing.
• Over 300 pricing functions to capture the pricing effects of different scenarios on many different types of instruments and strategies.
• A standard liquidity risk methodology that illustrates potential monetary loss of liquidation across both listed and OTC securities.
• The ability to run various confidence intervals and time horizons*

“History has taught us that markets are never going to be stable and market regulation is ever evolving. Investors can be better prepared for these macro level uncertainties with access to services that provide micro level transparency,” states Andrew Peddar, CEO of StatPro North America. “StatPro’s Risk Bureau is this service. It provides a transparent methodology for explaining risk factors for multi-strategy and basic portfolios minus the expense and hassle typically associated with installing technology.”

The Risk Bureau Service was designed to help firms enhance the integrity of their risk measures with minimal interruption to their internal operations. The robust risk measures in the reports are produced and maintained by industry experts, ensuring precise, accurate risk statistics.

StatPro’s Risk Bureau clients are using this service as both a standalone solution for risk management and alongside StatPro Revolution; a cloud based portfolio analytics platform supporting performance, attribution, risk, and client reporting. Reports and delivery frequency can be customized based on customer demand. For more information please visit: http://www.statpro.com/cloud-based-portfolio-analysis/advanced-risk-solutions/.
