KBC Asset Management Taps Axioma for Equities Risk Management

Belgian investment firm to utilize Axioma risk and portfolio management solution to optimize European equities operations.

Headquartered in Brussels, KBC Asset Management accounts for 30 percent of the Belgian fund market.

KBC, which is based in Brussels and holds €100 billion ($105.6 billion) in assets under management, will adopt the Axioma risk management and portfolio optimization solution across its equity portfolios throughout Belgium, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and the Czech Republic.

The implementation will be carried out in parallel to KBC’s existing project to adopt SimCorp’s Dimension platform.

“Simplicity and flexibility supported by a robust risk solution are key to managing risk across our funds,” said Joris De Moor, head of quantitative equity fund management at KBC, in a statement. “We selected Axioma after a comprehensive vendor review, as it offered the most suitable answer for our challenges and objectives. This will allow us to improve our investment processes, risk analysis and operational efficiency across all our quantitative equity strategies.”
