Services for Wealth Managers

We help you to understand and manage risk within your portfolios. More importantly we help you to articulate your approach and process in a language your clients will understand. Then communicate and report to them on an ongoing basis.

We use a structured 4 Step Approach to understand your process and portfolio, define specific risk parameters and establish the most appropriate tools and infrastructure for you to use.

Step 1: Express and define the Risk Policy

Using a combination of interviews and analysis, we identify the strategies you are deploying within your portfolios. We will identify each manager’s investment style and learn how they intend to generate returns. We outline and describe your investment process and take time to understand how your team operates.

Step 2: Design of the risk framework

We use the information obtained in step one to translate your Risk Policy into a book structure. We select relevant indicators to describe and measure the fund’s risk. At this point we work with you to define the audience to whom the reports will be distributed, understanding that different audiences have different requirements. We then set-up your risk limits and design your risk report, including your Risk DashboardTM.

Step 3: Select and deploy tools and infrastructure

The next stage of the process involves defining the infrastructure that will allow you to measure and monitor the risks as defined in your Risk Policy. We identify all of the available systems and consider any gaps. We find ways to fill the gaps then help you to deploy the agreed infrastructure and produce your required internal and external reports.

Step 4: Monitor and review

The last stage in our process involves monitoring and review. We monitor the limits and analyse your portfolio in terms of risks and returns. Understanding that conditions change over time, we review your Risk Policy and adapt or amend as required. By documenting your process we are helping you to articulate risk in a more transparent and user friendly way.
