Raise Partner enables retail investors to fully master their investment decisions

Singapore - 28 November 2014

Raise Partner, a leading provider of risk and robust optimization analytics is pleased to announce that its product Wall Risk Engine (WRE) is now live at Cortal Consors (a division of BNP Paribas Personal Investors) in Nuremberg, Germany.

How to detect and make your portfolio benefit from the growth of specific countries, industrial sectors, asset classes using stocks, bonds, or ETFs while controlling its current rate of return as well as its risk?

WRE, now part of the Cortal Consors platform, responds to this question by providing a set of unique functionalities enabling the retail investor to identify abnormal behaviors (low diversification, higher risk contribution of a given stock, etc.) early enough, as well as bringing the risk/return profile of their portfolios back to their original target levels.

‘We are excited to have contributed, alongside Cortal Consors to this innovative and differentiating project’. ‘We believe that WRE participates to the empowerment of retail investors’, says Francois Oustry, CEO and founder of Raise Partner.

Martin Hauptmann, Head of Customer Risk & Performance management at Cortal Consors added “ Our new tool makes both risk and performance fully transparent to our clients”.  

With 13 years of experience in providing robust asset allocation tools to investment professionals, the main challenge for Raise Partner was to scale up its software architecture to embrace big data. ‘One of our major contributions is the daily processing of large volumes of data (one million financial instruments covering all asset classes) combined with real-time access to unique portfolio simulation tools so that any client, at any time, can evaluate the impact of a potential investment decision (buying or selling securities) on the risk/return profile of their portfolios’ add Francois Oustry.

In combining Raise Partner’s analytics and robust asset allocation know-how with Cortal Consors’ technology and digital investment expertise, we have created a unique platform that enables retail investors to fully master their investment decisions.
