SunGard Trading and Risk Systems has teamed up with investment consulting firm Alpha Strategies to develop multi-factor portfolio risk analysis for its Panorama product.
Under the partnership agreement, Alpha Strategies will help SunGard develop Panorama's multi-factor risk analysis, including risk decomposition and risk attribution, to enable it to use any of the standard risk models currently being provided to institutional investors.
Alpha Strategies will also create custom multi-factor models for Panorama clients according to their specific investment styles.
Gavin Lavelle, president of the Panorama operating unit, comments: "We will work with our clients and Alpha Strategies to continue to explore ongoing development opportunities for Panorama, including portfolio optimisation, implied return analysis and VaR minimisation techniques."
