Independent consultancy Quattro Pensions, based in the English midlands, is set to offer RiskFirst's PFaroe analytics to small and medium sized pension scheme clients.
PFaroe will provide users granular risk analysis on investment strategy, including value-at-risk (VaR) interrogation, “What if?” analysis and stress-testing against historic market events.
“The pensions environment is changing and trustees want faster access to funding levels, with an increasing focus on the risk within investment strategy, partly driven by requirements from the UK Pensions Regulator,” says Andrew Allsopp, managing director of Quattro Pensions. “We needed to be able to offer a credible and dynamic solution to smaller pension schemes and in our opinion PFaroe is more detailed, flexible and usable than any other system that we have seen. We can now extend our investment service to use the same cutting-edge technology that is being used by the largest pension schemes – something that we see helping us expand our client base in the future.”
