Reuters subsidiary Lipper has struck an agreement with risk management technology firm Barra for the joint development of a mutual fund risk analysis tool for investment professionals.
The `Lipper-Barra Mutual Fund Risk Factor' product will offer intermediaries and institutions a tool to evaluate a fund's risk profile compared with its Lipper category using Barra's industry-standard risk content. The companies have yet to provide a delivery or pricing schedule for the new product.
