BlueCrest Capital Management selects Axioma risk tool
Axioma’s Robust Risk Models solution has been picked by BlueCrest Capital Management for use with its systemic equity strategies.
The risk solution is intended for use in the portfolio construction process, and to serve as a base on which to develop custom risk models.
BlueCrest product manager for Systemic Equities Frank Fehle said the selection of Axioma’s solution rested in part on its flexibility and customisability – although other model suppliers were also seen as offering sophisticated solutions.
Axioma introduced a Risk Model Machine in 2011, which enables clients to develop their own proprietary risk models, to tailor these to specific investment processes and approaches.
