Northern Trust adopts RiskFirst risk analytics system

Source: Northern Trust

Northern Trust (Nasdaq: NTRS) has enhanced its suite of asset-liability reporting solutions, enabling pension funds to gain deeper insights into their risk exposure with a cross-balance sheet view of their assets and liabilities.

The analytics will be provided from RiskFirst's web-based platform, PFaroe, and integrated with Northern Trust's global operating platform. Northern Trust's pension fund clients can monitor and evaluate a portfolio's risk and performance by profiling assets and liabilities side by side in the same framework, helping facilitate investment decisions.

"Pension funds are increasingly looking for tools that enable them to view their assets and liabilities holistically, rather than in isolation," said Ian Castledine, global head of Investment Risk and Compliance Product at Northern Trust. "Our enhanced solution adds significant granularity to our liability modelling capabilities, enabling our clients to have a far better understanding of their asset-liability position."

"Northern Trust has an exceptional reputation for providing customized and innovative solutions, and we are delighted to work with them to enhance their asset-liability risk analytics capabilities," said Matthew Seymour, managing director, RiskFirst.

Northern Trust's integrated risk management platform provides end to end operational support to include data loading, daily position maintenance and asset modelling alongside secure data storage, a flexible reporting portal and a global team of experienced investment risk consultants.
