Kinetic Partners, Riskdata launch risk reporting service
Kinetic Partners and Riskdata have partnered to launch a risk monitoring and reporting platform.
Kinetic Partners said that the deal built on its ‘partner platforms’ approach, offering users such as administrators, fund management companies and hedge funds the ability to monitor risk positions.
The new offering combines Kinetic’s risk management and monitoring expertise with Riskdata’s analytics, models and data services. The offering is being pitched into the market as an alternative to in-house risk systems.
Kinetic says developments in risk monitoring are chiefly in response to regulatory developments. Regulators are demanding firms apply improved risk and compliance systems. Events such as the recent trading losses at JP Morgan are adding to the debate, Kinetic said.
Olivier Le Marois, chief executive officer of Riskdata, said: “Empowering the highly skilled Kinetic Partners team with our scalable risk technology and pre-calculated data service, we are very proud to collaborate on this unique full-service risk-reporting platform, where the process and resources are focused on quality and reliability.”
