The technology mainstay says its updated buy-side offering, APT Enterprise, now includes a risk dashboard for a single view of market and liquidity risk that can incorporate multiple trading strategies and metrics covered under several global reporting regulations.
The new platform will provide asset managers with a competitive advantage derived from an intuitive and coherent analysis of both market and liquidity risks. This is achieved by improved modelling of multi asset class portfolios, and by streamlining the workflow for market data management.
With this capability, asset managers will have the flexibility to enhance their investment strategies, and to realize substantial operational efficiencies through large-scale automation of risk reports covering illiquid assets, unlisted funds, and virtually every type of derivative product. Asset Managers will also benefit from portfolio optimization as APT Enterprise’s ‘what-if’ analysis allows fund managers to make better investment decisions.
“Firms are starting to develop a true culture of risk, but they are challenged by lack of coherence in modelling and by disparate risk platforms. On top of this they must ensure compliance with regulation such as AIFMD, Form PF and UCITS," says Laurence Wormald, head of buy-side research, SunGard. "This makes it difficult to create a truly holistic view of risk and manage it effectively on an enterprise-wide basis. APT Enterprise allows the monitoring of liquidity risk to become more integrated with market risk and to be visualized via a front office dashboard – helping investment firms to make better-informed investment decisions.”
